Racks and Pinions

In addition to gearboxes, WITTENSTEIN alpha also offers system components such as pinions and racks for your ideal drive system.
With their precise tooth geometry, all pinion variants we supply are optimally tailored to the various output types, for example flange, shaft or system output. In combination with our innovative INIRA racks or one of the standard versions, we provide you with exact-fit system components for your drive solution.

Our cymex® 5 sizing software helps you select the optimum system components from a huge database.

WITTENSTEIN alpha system components – pinions and racks for an optimum system

Our predefined preferred linear systems show you the ideal combination of system components in terms of smooth running, positioning accuracy and feed force.
And if your requirements exceed what is offered by the preferred linear system, our cymex® 5 sizing software provides a quick path to a suitable solution.

We employ flexibly adapted production processes to meet the requirements for your ideal rack. It goes without saying that racks for high-end applications are case-hardened to meet demanding feed force specifications and guarantee maximum system performance throughout the entire service life.

All of our pinions are supplied factory-assembled – with significant benefits for you such as perfect gear backlash adjustment between the rack and pinion, the elimination of potential fault sources and reduced time and effort for assembly.
