Racks and Pinions

Racks and pinions are utilized to convert rotational motion to linear motion. A rack is straight teeth cut into one surface of rectangular or cylindrical rod shaped material, and a pinion is a small cylindrical gear meshing with the rack. There are many ways to categorize gears. If the relative position of the gear shaft is used, a rack and pinion belongs to the parallel shaft type.
