The range of positioning and drive technology components provides high speed, high acceleration and precise positioning of loads from 10kg to several tonnes making them suitable for machine tool, automation and special machine building applications.
Güdel manufacture the following rack and gear components:
Güdel equipment is manufactured to ISO9001 quality standards. Gudel rack and gear components are available from CNC Design .
Racks and pinions: Produced in both module and metric sizes from module 1.0 to 8.0 and 2mm to 20mm pitch, Güdel drive pinions ensure high accuracy and low backlash operation when used in conjunction with the matched series of straight or helical form rack units.
The rack and pinion range is available in three variations:
- Straight teeth metric pitch
- Straight teeth modular pitch
- Helical teeth modular pitch
All Güdel racks are manufactured to close tolerances, ready for use in continuous runs without modification, and can be produced with pre-drilled mounting holes for rapid fixing. In addition, racks can be supplied with up to module 5.0 and 12.5mm pitch in round profile to suit applications such as rotary actuation units.
Racks are available in steel in precision cut (Quality 7/8), precision cut and hardened (Quality 9/10), or hardened and ground (Quality 5/6) options, and capable of withstanding loads up to 50kN. Racks are also offered in stainless steel and a variety of special finishes to combat aggressive or corrosive operating environments.
A further range of injection moulded Polyoximethylen racks meets the needs of light to medium duty applications, while pinions can also be supplied in Lauramid metal composite for high resistance to stress cracking.
In addition, Güdel also supply fully automated rack and pinion lubrication systems to ensure high performance, low maintenance installations under arduous operating conditions.
Spur gears: The standard range of pinions contains a variety of models in different qualities and materials such as steel, stainless steel and plastic.
Worm wheel sets: The standard range of worm and worm gears contains seven sizes. Each size is available with 8 ratios and precision cut, tolerance of teeth: 8f24. Customers can select between hollow worms or worms with shaft. The range is interchangeable without restriction.
Bevel gear sets: Güdel bevel gear range contains a variety of materials, load capabilities and qualities:
- Gears are manufactured in steel, stainless steel, graphite cast iron, brass, zinc and plastic
- Straight, helical and spiral teeth
- In precision cut, hardened and ground and injection moulded
Gudel bevel gear range includes three specifications:
- Gears for low loads
- Gears for medium loads
