Are there any inexpensive rail and block systems out there that work well, better than slot rollers? I buy high quality, used linear guides via eBay.
Brands like IPO, ASK, THE, etc., can be had for only a little more than the cost of cheesy Win knock-offs. If you search the listings one bay and exclude anything with an MAN or MPH part number you'll find plenty of good deals mixed in with the grossly overpriced stuff.
(over half the cost of an admittedly high-end machine) They're cheap compared to buying them new. A good extruder is half the cost of a high-end printer, too.

Structural support posts by Certainties offer strength and a solid foundation with all the benefits of vinyl in three unique styles. Gear racks are utilized to convert rotating movement into linear motion.
If the application requires a long length requiring multiple gear racks in series, we have racks with the tooth forms correctly configured at the ends. As a mechanical element to transfer rotary into linear motion, gear racks are often compared to ball screws.
There are pros and cons for using racks in place of ball screws. The advantages of a gear rack are its mechanical simplicity, large load carrying capacity, and no limit to the length, etc.
The advantages of a ball screw are the high precision and lower backlash while its shortcomings include the limit in length due to deflection. Rack and pinions are used for lifting mechanisms (vertical movement), horizontal movement, positioning mechanisms, stoppers and to permit the synchronous rotation of several shafts in general industrial machinery.
The characteristics of rack and pinion systems in steering are as follows: simple structure, high rigidity, small and lightweight, and excellent responsiveness. With this mechanism, the pinion, mounted to the steering shaft, is meshed with a steering rack to transmit rotary motion laterally (converting it to linear motion) so that you can control the wheel.
A ground rack made of carburized ceremony steel. Heat treated ground rack with high precision and strength has excellent cost-performance ratio.
Excellent products with high precision and strength, and low noise and abrasion characteristics. Effective in reducing noise and vibration due to larger contact ratio of helical gears.
A product designed so that the helix angle is 19°31'41" and the distance of the pinion traveled in one turn is an integer (mm). A helical rack is a bar shaped gear with slanted linear tooth trace that is used when silence and high speed rotation are required, and it can be meshed with a helical gear.
The driven side of the rack is supported by a separate structure of machine elements. When the rack is movable, its motion is in a straight line, and its use is mainly to take advantage of this behavior.
For example, it is used as a jack or clamping system or, by modifying the tip of a rack, utilized as the pusher of a work piece. Also, if two racks are laid facing each other and a pinion is placed between them, the repeated forward-backward motion of the pinion will produce an alternating advance and retreat motion of the racks.
Racks can be placed midstream in conveyor transport mechanisms. As shown, pinion and rack possesses a high degree of freedom in its applications depending only on the users’ ideas.
The steering mechanism is used to change the direction of automobiles and are mainly classified into rack-and-pinion and ball nut types. Of these two, the rack and pinion type steering mechanism has become the mainstream used in many small cars.
Its construction is simple with other characteristics such as lightweight, high strength, low friction, superior responsiveness, etc. The wheel is moved left and right through the system of tie rods connected to the ends of the rack.
(Caution : Currently, kHz does not supply rack and pinion for automotive steering mechanisms.) As for the materials of a racks and pinions, strength, abrasion resistance, and absorbency are considered.
Regarding the heat treatment of a rack and pinion, thermal refining, carburizing and quenching, tooth face high frequency hardening, and tooth face laser hardening are used depending on the kinds of materials and purposes. The overall length of standard racks on the market is generally not more than 2000 mm, and offered in 500 mm units such as 500 mm, 1000 mm, 1500 mm.
Although the difficulty in production varies depending on the accuracy classes and specifications, the basic production of the rack and pinion is possible with a rack cutting machine and gear robbing machine. They are especially produced on a large scale by famous rack manufacturers in Germany and Taiwan.
As a mechanical element that produces linear motion, a rack and pinion system is often compared with to ball screw. When compared with a rack and pinion, generally a ball screw has priorities of accurate positioning, smooth motion with a little friction, and no backlash, on the other hand, ball screws have the disadvantages of higher cost, the difficulty of producing ball screws with long lengths due to deflection, and unsuitability for heavy loads.
There is no interchangeability between pinion and rack if different pitch systems are used in the pair. In addition, kHz offers tapered racks and pinions.
Conventionally, in order to adjust the backlash, it was necessary to change the distance between the rack and the axis of the pinion. Because of the taper in the teeth, they are not interchangeable with regular rack and pinion.

The items with (D) have mounting screw holes for easier assembly. For safer handling and to prevent damage such as deformation, kHz stock CP racks have round chambering on the corners of the top land of the gear tooth.
Because it is effective for reducing noise, all of kHz CP racks have this chambering treatment. Since CP2.5 (m0.796), CP5 (m1.592) and CP10 (m3.183) are very close to m0.8, m1.5 and m3 respectively, the selecting the proper mating gear should be verified to make sure that the items are correct.
STR CPF and STRIPED Tapered Racks are mated with KT SCP Spur Gears having the same pitch. The gear strength values shown in the product pages were computed by assuming a certain application environment.
We recommend that each user computes his own values by applying the actual usage conditions. The table below contains the assumptions established for these products in order to compute gear strengths.
The allowable bending stress at the root Film is calculated from JGMA401-01, and set to 2/3 of the value in the consideration of the use of planetary-, idler-, or other gear systems, loaded in both directions. Example of the failure due to insufficient bending strength.
The surface durability of a gear is defined as the allowable tangential force at the pitch circle, which permits the force to be transmitted safely without incurring surface failure. The precision standards of kHz stock racks are established by us.
Convert CP to m (module) when reference is made to the data in the table. In order to use kHz stock gears safely, carefully read the Application Hints before proceeding.
If there are questions or if you require clarifications, please contact our technical department or your nearest distributor. To avoid problems of gear precision, do not reduce the face width.
Pitch lines of racks are controlled by using the bottom surface as the reference datum and over-pin measurements on tooth thickness. If you machine the bottom surfaces, the precision of the racks may be affected.
When connecting two racks, the machining of the mating ends requires careful consideration. The meshing will be poor if the pitch (CP) straddling the connection has a positive tolerance.
To be able to handle parts safely, all burrs and sharp corners should be removed after the secondary operations are done. kHz stock CP racks are designed to give the proper backlash when assembled using the mounting distance given by the formula below (mounting distance tolerance of H to H required).
Make sure that the mounting distance stays constant for the length of the rack. Mounting distance a = Height of pitch line of rack + Pitch radius of pinion Pinions are assumed to be standard stock spur gears (x=0).
To maintain true angle, they should be mounted on high precision bases as shown below. It is even possible to correct for the angular errors of racks by compensating the mounting base.
With recent increases in the requirement for zero backlash linear drives, such accurate assembly as shown is becoming more important. If the racks are not secured properly to the base, they could shift during operation and cause unexpected problems.
