Aug 30,2022

  The the Pearl River reducer manufacturer in Foshan said that the reducer is an independent part composed of gear transmission, worm transmission and gear worm transmission enclosed in a rigid housing, and is often used as a reducer between the prime mover and the working machine. It plays a role in matching speed and transmitting torque between the prime mover and the working machine or actuator, and is widely used in modern machinery.
  Reducers are generally used for low speed, high torque transmission equipment. Electric motors, internal combustion engines, or other high-speed power are reduced by meshing the small tooth gears on the input shaft of the reducer with the large gears on the output shaft. A regular gearbox also has several pairs of gears with the same principle to achieve the desired deceleration effect. The ratio of teeth between large and small gears is the transmission ratio.
  The the Pearl River reducer manufacturer in Foshan said that the reducer is a relatively precise machine, which plays the role of matching speed and transmitting torque between the prime mover and the working machine or actuator. Its purpose is to reduce the speed and increase the torque. There are many types and models of it, and different types have different uses. There are many types of reducers, which can be divided into gear reducers, worm reducers, and planetary gear reducers according to transmission types; According to the transmission series, it can be divided into single-stage and multi-stage reducers; According to the shape of the gears, they can be divided into cylindrical gear reducers, bevel gear reducers, and bevel cylindrical gear reducers; According to the arrangement of transmission, it can be divided into extended type reducers, split type reducers, and coaxial type reducers.


  The main characteristics of worm gear reducers:
  The manufacturer of the Pearl River gear reducer in Foshan said that the worm gear reducer has a reverse self-locking function and can have a large reduction ratio. The input shaft and output shaft are not on the same axis or plane. However, it is generally larger in size, with lower transmission efficiency and accuracy. Harmonic reducer harmonic drive utilizes the controllable elastic deformation of flexible components to transmit motion and power, with small volume and high accuracy. But its disadvantage is that the flexible wheel has limited lifespan, is not resistant to impact, and has poor rigidity compared to metal parts. The input speed cannot be too high. The present invention has the advantages of compact structure, small return clearance, high accuracy, long service life, and large rated output torque. But the price is slightly higher. Gear reducers have the characteristics of small volume and large torque transmission. Gear reducers are designed and manufactured on the basis of modular combination systems. There are various motor combinations, installation forms, and structural schemes, and the transmission ratio is closely graded, which can meet different working conditions and achieve electromechanical integration. Gear reducers have high transmission efficiency, low energy consumption, and superior performance. The cycloidal gear reducer is a transmission model based on the principle of cycloidal gear meshing planetary transmission. It is an ideal transmission device with many advantages, widely used, and can operate in both directions.


  The function of the reducer:
  1. Reduce speed while increasing output torque. The torque output ratio is calculated by multiplying the motor output by the reduction ratio, but be careful not to exceed the rated torque of the reducer;
  2. While decelerating, it reduces the inertia of the load, and the reduction in inertia is the square of the reduction rate.
