How to solve the wear of worm gear reducer?

The worm gear reducer is a power transmission mechanism that uses the speed converter of the gear to decelerate the number of revolutions of the motor (motor) to the required number of revolutions and obtain a large torque mechanism.Next, we will talk about how the worm gear reducer should be handled in this way, hoping to help everyone.The worm gear is generally made of tin bronze. When the reducer is running normally, the worm is like a hardened "file", constantly filing the worm gear, causing wear and tear on the worm gear.Generally speaking, this kind of wear is very slow, like some reducers in a certain factory can be used for more than 10 years.If the wear rate is fast, it is necessary to consider whether the selection of the reducer is correct, whether there is overload operation, the material of the worm gear, the assembly quality or the use environment.
Generally, it occurs on the reducer installed vertically, mainly related to the amount of lubricant added and the choice of lubricant.When installed vertically, it is easy to cause insufficient lubricating oil. When the reducer stops running, the transmission gear between the motor and the reducer loses oil, and the gear does not get the proper lubrication protection, and it is not effective during startup or operation. The high lubrication causes mechanical wear and even damage.
