Guide on how to use micro reduction motors

Micro reduction motor is a common power transmission mechanism and is used in various mechanical transmission systems. The installation and use of micro-reduced motors must comply with technical specifications and standards, which is directly related to the operating effect of micro-reduced motors.


1. When installing the micro reduction motor, special attention should be paid to the alignment of the transmission center axis. The alignment error cannot exceed the compensation amount of the coupling used in the micro reduction motor. After the micro reduction motor is aligned as required, a more ideal transmission effect and a longer service life can be obtained.


2. When installing the transmission parts on the output shaft of the micro-reducer motor, you must pay attention to the gentle operation. It is prohibited to use tools such as hammers for rough installation. It is best to use the assembly fixture and the internal thread of the shaft end for installation, and tighten the bolts with force. The transmission parts are pressed into the micro reduction motor shaft, which protects the internal parts of the micro reduction motor from damage.


3. There are many types of couplings used in micro reduction motors, but it is best not to use steel fixed couplings. This type of coupling has no radial offset compensation and is difficult to install. Once installed, Improper use will increase the load, easily causing damage to the bearings, and even causing the output shaft to break.


4. The fixation of the micro-reduced motor is very important. To ensure smoothness and firmness, generally speaking, we should install the micro reduced motor on a horizontal foundation or base, while ensuring that the oil drain port drains oil smoothly and the cooling air circulates smoothly. When the micro reduction motor is not well fixed and the foundation is unreliable, noise, vibration and other phenomena will occur, which will also cause unnecessary damage to the bearings and gears.


5. The transmission coupling of the micro reduction motor should be equipped with protective devices when necessary. For example, there are protrusions on the coupling or the use of gears, sprockets, etc. If the output bearing is subject to a large radial load, a reinforced type should also be selected .


6. The installation position of the micro-reducer motor must ensure the operator's operation, including locations that allow easy access to the oil mark, vent plug, and oil drain plug. After the installation of the micro reduction motor is completed, the inspector should comprehensively check the accuracy of the installation position in sequence and determine the reliability of each fastener, etc.


7. Before running the micro-reducer motor, prepare for operation. Remove the vent screw plug of the oil pool and replace it with a vent plug. Open the oil level plug screw to check the oil line height. Add lubricating oil to the level above the oil level plug screw hole overflows, and then screw on the oil level plug and confirm that it is correct, you can start the test run.


8. The trial operation time of the micro-reduced motor should not be less than two hours. The standard for normal operation is smooth operation, no vibration no noise, no leakage, and no impact. If any abnormality occurs, it should be eliminated in time.
