  • RGEAH Induction Hardened Rack Gears, Ground. Hole machining options for this type include no hole, or bottom tapped, side tapped or side counterboard tapped holes.

  • RGEAHL Induction Hardened Rack Gears, Ground, Hole Position Configurable. This type offers user configurable hole machining, with bottom, side or side counterboard tapped options.

    Both new rack gears are manufactured in 1045 Carbon Steel with Black Oxide Finish, and both feature end face machining. The Rack Gears are available in a variety of sizes (Module 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0). Shipping times range from three (3) to six (6) days, depending on which type and hole machining options are selected.
