What do you need to know about the installation of worm gear reducer?

What needs to be mastered in the installation of worm gear reducer.The installation process of the worm gear reducer seems simple, in fact, there are many secrets hidden in the middle, let's take a look at it together:

  1. The worm gear reducer should be firmly installed on a stable and level foundation or base, the oil in the oil drain should be able to be drained, and the cooling air circulation should be smooth.The foundation of the worm gear reducer is unreliable, which will cause vibration and noise during operation, and cause damage to the bearings and gears.When there are protrusions in the transmission coupling or gears and sprockets are used for transmission, protective devices should be installed. When the output shaft bears a large radial load, the reinforced type should be selected.

  2. Ensure that the staff can easily approach the oil mark, vent plug and oil drain plug according to the specified installation device.After the installation is in place, the accuracy of the installation position of the worm gear reducer should be comprehensively checked in order, and the reliability of each fastener should be able to rotate flexibly after installation.The worm gear reducer is lubricated by splashing oil pool. Before running, the user needs to remove the screw plug of the vent hole and replace it with a vent plug.According to different installation positions, open the oil level plug screw to check the height of the oil level line, add oil from the oil level plug until the lubricating oil overflows from the oil level plug screw hole, screw on the oil level plug to confirm that it is correct, and then empty it. Load test run, time not less than 2 hours.The operation should be stable, without shock, vibration, noise and oil leakage. Any abnormality should be eliminated in time.

  3. When installing the worm gear reducer, attention should be paid to the centering of the transmission center axis, and the error should not be greater than the compensation amount of the coupling used.Good alignment can prolong the service life and obtain the ideal transmission efficiency.

  4. When installing the transmission parts on the output shaft, it is not allowed to strike with a hammer. Usually, the assembly fixture and the internal thread of the shaft end are used to press the transmission parts with bolts, otherwise it may cause damage to the internal parts of the worm gear reducer.It is best not to use rigid fixed couplings. Improper installation of such couplings will cause unnecessary external loads, resulting in early damage to the bearing, and even breakage of the output shaft in severe cases.
