Moore Gear & Manufacturing® gears and gear racks are used in machine tool and automation equipment, agricultural equipment, material handling, and oil & gas among many other applications.
Gears and gear racks can be customized to your specifications as part of the manufacturing process, saving you time and money. Our products can be manufactured using a variety of materials.
Custom & Stock Gear Racks
Custom and stock gear racks are manufactured on the latest CNC rack machines. All gear racks have tight tolerances on the tooth-to-tooth spacing, and excellent machined finish on teeth, and a steady pitchline-to-back dimension. All this translates into a smooth, steady ride for the pinion.
STOCK GEAR RACKS in 14 ½ degree and 20 degree pressure angles in 4-foot, 6-foot, and 12-foot lengths are available for immediate delivery. All our standard off-the-shelf gear racks are made from low carbon steel with the same care and precision as our custom gear racks.
Made-to-order in various sizes (rectangular, square, round, and hex) and lengths with available customizing services. All gear racks can be milled and matched for continuous travel and drilled per customer specifications.
Our hobbed spur gears are made-to-order using American standard from .25DP to 64DP. Metric or circular pitch sizes are also available. Most of our gears are manufactured on state-of-the-art CNC machines.
Other types of gears manufactured per customer specifications or print include:
Worms and worm gears
Internal shaped gears
Gears and gear racks can be manufactured in nearly any material you require including:
Low carbon steel
Pre-heat treated steel
Gray or ductile iron
Plastic (nylon or delrin)

CNC HOB SHARPENING
Moore Gear knows that high quality, top condition hobs must be used to cut high quality gears and gear racks. To ensure the quality and accuracy of our products, the hobs are checked regularly and re-sharpened to high class tolerances on our CNC hob sharpener.
