Structure and maintenance of Worm Gearbox

 1. Introduction

Worm Gearbox is a power transmission mechanism that uses a gear speed converter to reduce the number of revolutions of the motor to the desired number of revolutions and obtain a larger torque. In the mechanism used to transmit power and motion, the application range of reducers is quite wide. Its traces can be seen in the transmission systems of various machines, from ships, cars, locomotives for transportation, heavy machinery for construction, processing machinery and automated production equipment used in the machinery industry, to common household appliances and clocks in daily life. Its application ranges from large power transmission work to small loads and precise angle transmission. In industrial applications, reducers have the functions of reducing speed and increasing torque. Therefore, they are widely used in speed and torque conversion equipment.

2. Basic structure
The basic structure is mainly composed of transmission parts worm gear, shaft, bearing, box and its accessories. It can be divided into three basic structural parts: box, worm gear, bearing and shaft combination. The housing is the base of all accessories in the worm gear reducer. It is an important accessory that supports and fixes the shaft system components, ensures the correct relative position of the transmission accessories, and supports the load acting on the reducer. The main function of the worm gear is to transmit the movement and power between the two staggered shafts, and the main function of the bearing and shaft is to transmit power, operate and improve efficiency

3. Features
1. Compact mechanical structure, light volume and appearance, small and efficient;
2. Good heat exchange performance and fast heat dissipation;
3. Easy installation, flexible and light, superior performance, easy maintenance and repair;
4. Smooth operation, low noise, and durable;
5. Strong usability, high safety and reliability

4. Use and maintenance
1. Please do not apply pressure to the output components and housing of the reducer during installation. Please meet the corresponding requirements of coaxiality and verticality between the machine and the reducer when connecting.
2. The lubricating oil should be replaced after the reducer runs for 400 hours, and the subsequent oil change cycle is about 4000 hours.
3. Sufficient lubricating oil should be retained in the reducer housing and checked regularly.
4. Keep the reducer clean and remove dust and dirt in time to facilitate heat dissipation.
