Tips for Using Plastic Gears

The most used plastic gears are now made of milky white Duracon (polyoxymethylene resin) or blue MC nylon (polyamide resin).
Duracon may be less expensive, but it is recommended that you choose between these materials after considering the strength and water absorption.

Plastic gear materials

One type of engineering plastic is called POM. It is also known by the trade name Duracon or its generic name acetal copolymer. The other is MC nylon. It is a polyamide resin, also known as Nylon 6.
Because both are smooth materials, they generally do not need to be lubricated with grease or oil. They are softer than metal and therefore have high vibration absorption for effective noise reduction. The common feature of these two materials is that they are lighter than metal and are resistant to salt corrosion.

about Plastic Gear Rack

Plastic Gear Racks are versatile tools for storing and displaying your collection of vintage and modern gear. A plastic rack can hold up to 75 gears, and its circular shape makes it easy to move from one location to another. A jack or clamping system is also an option. Some racks even serve as pushers, while others serve as fixed supports for pinions. No matter how you use them, they’re sure to add to the appeal of your personal gear collection.
Heavy  Duty Gate Rack

Why Choose Our Nylon Gear Rack?

Technology, quality, and design are the keywords that describe our design and production of highly durable and high-performance racks for heavy-duty gates. The main features are as follows:

  • Lightness
  • No need for lubrication
  • Rust-free
  • Silence
  • No welding required

Thus, not only mechanical properties but also aesthetic benefits. Unlike metal frames for doors, frames made of nylon and plastic will not rust, so they will maintain their appearance and performance for a long time. The door’s nylon rack and pinion mechanism is much quieter than a metal one. This aspect combined with the reduced weight of the mechanism itself makes the rack an ideal solution for industrial and residential automation. Finally, our shelves do not require welding, unlike iron shelves, allowing customers to receive ready-to-use products, saving the cost of further work.

Material of plastic gear rack

Plastic gear racks can be made of several types of materials. The standard type PR uses MC nylon, while the PRF type has end surface work to connect several racks. Polyacetal-based DRFD and DRFK series feature mounting holes. Injection-molded DR series have unique flexible properties, which make them suitable for curved locations. You can also choose between the various kinds of racks by size, shape, and material.

The material used for gears will depend on the number of gears and the force needed to move them. Considerations may include the application and environment of the gears, including moisture and chemical exposure. Choose a material that has good strength and stiffness. Dimensional stability is crucial in retaining gear tooth contact ratio, tooth tip clearance, and overall geometry. Different types of plastic materials will have different dimensions depending on the manufacturing process and moisture content.
