Rack And Pinion Drive

Rack and Pinion Drive

Smith Richards Inc. has just developed a Rack and Pinion Drive system.  Our customer asked us to create a drive system that will push/pull their cargo tray 70%-80% out of an RV.  With the Bi-Directional drive system we will be able to integrate a single unit into each cargo tray with limited storage loss and still drive loads in excess of 1000 lbs in/out either side of an RV.  Additional applications for this mechanism include driving small slide outs or light duty lifting applications.  Pictured above is an example of a TV Lift for flat panel LCD/Plasma/LED Televisions.  We define light duty as loads between 0 lbs and 110 lbs.
