Rack and pinion drives with synchronous servo motors

Date: 10 November 2021

From full rotation into linear motion

With the innovative system concept for rack and pinion drives, STOBER has developed a compact, easy-to-use system with process reliability that is precisely tailored to the application areas of machine tools, automation and robotics.

By combining them with our planetary or helical bevel gear units and STOBER servo motors, you get the benefit of extremely compact, highly dynamic drive solutions.

Compact servo gearmotor with pinion mounted

The Stober rack and pinion drives are versatile, ready-to-install solutions that are adapted to meet the various requirements in terms of load capacity and precision.

All pinion designs are available in combination with STOBER planetary gear units, and the ZV series can also come with helical bevel gear units.

Optimal: All STOBER EZ series motors can be directly attached to the gear unit in any size you need – without any adapters.

Omitting the motor adapter means that you benefit from lower mass moments of inertia so you get the most out of the dynamics of your drive.

Available with 4 types of pinions

  • ZV…EZ: High flexibility for automation and robotics
  • ZR…EZ: High speed due to high feed velocities
  • ZTR…EZ: High performance for demanding drive concepts
  • ZTRS…EZ: High force for maximum power density
