PRO Rack and Pinion Drive, NEMA 23
Our PRO series rack and pinion drives offer tighter interfaces and higher accuracy than our standard line, with the following features:
  • Ball bearing pivot interface.
  • Super-oilite bushing and matched precision ground spindle shaft.
  • High resolution 3:1 for NEMA 23 motors.
  • Unique EZ-tension mechanism for simple adjustment of gear to rack pre-loading.
Our most recent version features some significant improvements in usability over previous models.
  • Top-side belt tensioning cam. Belt tension can be adjusted without clamps, even while the unit is installed on a machine.
  • Universal mounting plate design allows users to upgrade from NEMA 23 to NEMA 34 by changing only pulleys, belts, and drive spindle.
  • Dual bearing pivot with eccentric locking collar for low backlash and easy adjustment of rack engagement in non-standard setups.

  • MACH Settings for R&P:
    The R&P system is based on a pinion with a 1" pitch circle. The total linear distance traveled per revolution of the pinion is thus 3.14159". With the 3:1 reduction, this means that the distance traveled per motor revolution is 3.14159 / 3, or 1.0472". If you have a stepper with 200 steps per revolution, this means you have 200 / 1.0472" = 190.9861 steps per inch, or 0.005236" per step. With 10x microstepping, you would have 1909.861 steps per inch, or 0.0005236" per step. For the optional 3/8" pulley, this number changes to 1736.237, as the motor pulley is slightly larger.
