Reasons for damage of gear reducer during running-in period

Since it is an important device, its running-in period may be frequent, generally not less than 200 hours. All geared motors must go through the running-in period, otherwise serious damage may occur during use.So do you know what the reason is?Below is a detailed answer for you.

Wear fast.Due to the influence of factors such as the processing, assembly and debugging of the parts of the new gear reducer, the contact area of ​​the mating surface is small, and the allowable torque is large.During the operation of the gear reducer, the concave and convex parts on the surface of the parts fit and rub against each other, and the metal chips that fall off, as abrasives, continue to participate in the friction, which accelerates the wear of the matching surfaces of the parts.Therefore, it is easy to cause the wear of parts (especially the mating surface) during the running-in period, and the wear speed is too fast.At this time, if it is overloaded, it may cause damage to components and cause early failure.Many operating errors.Due to insufficient understanding of the structure and performance of the geared motor (especially for new operators), it is easy to cause failures due to operational errors, and even cause mechanical accidents and safety accidents.Poor lubrication, due to the small fitting clearance of the newly assembled parts, and due to assembly and other reasons, the lubricating oil (grease) is not easy to form a uniform oil film on the friction surface to prevent wear.As a result, the lubrication efficiency is reduced and the early abnormal wear of the parts is caused.In severe cases, the friction surface of the precision fit will be scratched or occluded, resulting in failure.
