When the rack-and-pinion is in a power-steering program, the rack includes a slightly different design.
Portion of the rack contains a cylinder with a piston in the centre. The piston is connected to the rack. There are two liquid ports, one on either part of the piston. Supplying higher-pressure fluid to 1 aspect of the piston forces the piston to move, which in turn movements the rack, offering the power assist.
Roof Racks fasten to vehicles with factory installed raised railings, rain gutters, predetermined fixed points, simple rooflines and roof mounted slotted tracks. Varying crossbar lengths can be found to accomodate just about any load width. Roof rack attachments are available to carry bicycles, kayaks, canoes, SUPs, surfboards, skis, snowboards and a variety of other sports apparatus. Roof Rack Cargo Boxes are made to fasten straight to all the roof racks supplied by our manufacturers. Please select a Fit Instruction above to get the perfect fitting roof rack for your vehicle.

Gear racks are used to convert rotating motion into linear motion. A gear rack has straight teeth cut into one surface of a square or round section of rod and operates with a pinion, which can be a small cylindrical equipment meshing with the gear rack. Generally, equipment rack and pinion are collectively known as “rack and pinion”. There are plenty of ways to use gears.
To provide many variations of rack and pinion, Ever-Power has many types of gear racks in share. If the application takes a long duration requiring multiple gear racks in series, we have racks with the tooth forms correctly configured at the ends. They are described as “gear racks with machined ends”. When a gear rack is produced, the tooth cutting process and the heat treatment process could cause it to try & walk out true. We can control this with unique presses & remedial processes.
There are applications where in fact the gear rack is stationary, while the pinion traverses and others where the pinion gear rack for automobile rotates upon a fixed axis while the gear rack moves. The previous is used widely in conveying systems while the latter can be utilized in extrusion systems and lifting/lowering applications.
