How to Install Worm Gear Motor Safely?

The choice of the installation position of the reducer.

If there is a safe environment, try not to use vertical installation. During vertical installation, the amount of lubricating oil added is more than that used in the horizontal installation, which is easy to cause heat and oil leakage of the reducer. ATO DC worm geared motorsC are available for vertical and horizontal mounting.

Guaranteed assembly quality

Some special tools can be purchased or made by yourself. When disassembling and installing the parts of the reducer, try to avoid knocking with other tools such as hammers.

  • When replacing gears, worm gears and worms, try to use original accessories and replace them in pairs.
  • When assembling the output shaft, pay attention to the tolerance fit.
  • It is necessary to use an anti-sticking agent to protect the hollow shaft to prevent wear and rust or scale on the mating area, which is difficult to disassemble during maintenance.

Lubrication maintenance

The reducer can be maintained according to the principle of lubrication work. Each reducer has a responsible person to check regularly and find that the temperature rise is obvious, exceeding 40 °C or the oil temperature exceeding 80 °C. When the quality of the oil is degraded or more copper powder is found in the oil to produce abnormal noise, stop using it immediately, check and repair it in time, and replace the lubricating oil. When refueling, pay attention to the amount of oil to ensure that the reducer is properly lubricated.

Selection of lubricants and additives. For the turbo reducer with a heavy load, frequent starting and poor use environment, some lubricating oil additives can be used to make the gear oil still adhere to the surface of the gear when the reducer stops running to form a protective film to prevent direct contact between metals during startup. The additives contain a sealing ring conditioner and anti-leakage agent to keep the sealing ring soft and elastic, which can effectively reduce the leakage of lubricating oil.
