  Foshan the Pearl River reducer manufacturer said that in the reducer family, the planetary reducer is used for servo, stepping, DC and other transmission systems because of its small size, wide deceleration range and high precision. Its function is to reduce the speed, increase torque, and reduce the load/motor moment of inertia ratio while ensuring precise transmission. In the past few years, some users used gearboxes, but due to improper installation and other human factors, the output shaft of the gearbox broke, causing unnecessary losses to the enterprise. Therefore, in order to better help users make good use of the gearbox, the following will provide a detailed introduction on how to correctly install the gearbox.
  Proper installation and use of the gearbox is an important step in ensuring the normal operation of mechanical equipment. Therefore, when installing the reducer, please strictly follow the following installation and usage related matters, and assemble and use it carefully.
  1. Before installation, confirm whether the motor and reducer are intact, and strictly check whether the size of the connecting parts between the motor and reducer matches. The following are the dimensions and fitting tolerances of the positioning boss, input shaft, and reducer groove of the motor.
  2. Unscrew the screw on the outer dust hole of the reducer flange, adjust the PCS system clamping ring to align its side hole with the dust hole, and insert it into the hexagonal socket to tighten. Afterwards, remove the motor shaft key.
​​​​​​​  3. Connect the motor and reducer naturally. Foshan the Pearl River reducer manufacturer said that when connecting, the concentricity of reducer output shaft and motor input shaft must be consistent, and the outer flanges of both must be parallel. Due to inconsistent eccentricity, it can cause motor shaft fracture or gearbox gear wear. In addition, during installation, it is prohibited to strike with a hammer to prevent excessive axial or radial force from damaging the bearings or gears. Before tightening the pressure bolts, make sure to tighten the installation bolts. Before installation, wipe the anti rust oil on the motor input shaft, positioning boss, and reducer connection with gasoline or zinc sodium water. Its purpose is to ensure the tightness of the connection and the flexibility of operation, preventing unnecessary wear and tear.
​​​​​​​  ​​​​​​​The manufacturer of the Pearl River reducer in Foshan said that before connecting the motor with the reducer, the keyway of the motor shaft should be perpendicular to the fastening bolt. To ensure uniform force, first tighten the installation bolts at any diagonal position, but do not tighten them. Then tighten the installation bolts at the other two diagonal positions, and finally tighten the four installation bolts one by one. Finally, tighten the bolts. All fastening bolts should be fixed and inspected using a torque wrench according to the marked fixing torque data. The correct installation between the gearbox and mechanical equipment is similar to the correct installation between the gearbox and the drive motor. The key is to ensure that the concentricity of the output shaft of the reducer is consistent with the concentricity of the driven part of the shaft.
