The installation and use of the reducer are directly related to the operation effect of the reducer, and must comply with technical specifications and standards. The trial operation time of the reducer cannot be less than two hours. The standard for normal operation is smooth operation, no vibration, no noise, no leakage, and no impact. If abnormal conditions occur, they should be eliminated in time.
The transmission coupling of the reducer should be equipped with protective devices when necessary, such as protrusions on the coupling or the use of gears or sprocket transmission, etc. If the output bearing is subjected to a large radial load, a reinforced type should also be selected. Before the reducer is running, prepare for operation. Remove the vent plug of the oil sump and replace it with a vent plug, open the oil level plug screw to check the oil line height, add lubricating oil beyond the oil level plug screw to overflow, Then screw on the oil level plug and confirm that it is correct, you can start trial operation.
There are many optional types of couplings used in the reducer, but it is better not to use rigid fixed couplings. This type of coupling is more difficult to install. Once improperly installed, it will increase the load and easily cause bearings. The damage may even cause the break of the output shaft. When the reducer is installed, pay special attention to the centering of the transmission center axis, and the alignment error cannot exceed the use compensation amount of the coupling used in the reducer. After the reducer is centered according to the requirements, a more ideal transmission effect and a longer service life can be obtained.
The fixation of the reducer is very important to ensure stability and firmness. Generally speaking, we should install the reducer on a horizontal foundation or base, while the oil in the oil drain tank should be able to drain, and the cooling air circulation should be smooth. If the worm gear reducer is not fixed well and the foundation is unreliable, it will cause and vibrate. It will also cause unnecessary damage to the bearings and gears. Reducer is a common power transmission mechanism, which is used in various mechanical transmission systems.
