The “Torque Supporter” precision rack-and-pinion drives handle highly dynamic and heavy loads. These drives use planetary reducers with an output housing and outboard bearing for rigid support on the output pinion. The pinion design allows for smaller pitch diameters, decreasing the reducer torque.
