Will the slewing drive raceway be damaged? Causes of raceway damage and preventive measures

The main structure of the slewing reducer is a structure in which the slewing bearing is used as a transmission follower and a mechanism attachment, and the slewing bearing itself is used to cooperate with the driving power source and the main transmission parts to complete the rotation, deceleration and driving. The slewing bearing is still one of the more critical components, so will the raceway of the slewing drive be damaged? Below, Xiaobian will give you a detailed introduction.

Will the raceway of the slewing drive be damaged?

Will be damaged. As an important component used by many construction machinery, the slewing reducer will inevitably have problems such as wear and fatigue damage during daily use. Because of its slewing structure, it is inevitable that the raceway will be damaged during work. . In addition to the insufficient rigidity of the raw materials in the manufacturing process, the reasons for the damage to the raceway may include unreasonable structural design and insufficient manufacturing accuracy of the reducer. Let’s take a look at it in detail:

Causes of damage to the slewing drive raceway

1. Heat treatment process

The processing quality of the rotary reducer itself is related to the manufacturing accuracy, heat treatment state, and axial clearance. What we usually ignore is the influence of the heat treatment state. In addition to the external force, the most important thing for the damage of the raceway is the depression and cracks on the surface of the raceway during its production. This is related to the hardness of the raceway surface and the hardness of the hardened layer and the core, and these factors are determined in the heat treatment process. For this reason, the depth of the hardened layer on the raceway surface is insufficient and the hardness of the core is low. A more critical factor in its raceway damage.

2. Structural rigidity of turntable

The key component that transmits various loads between the turntable and the chassis when driven by gears. The rigidity of the turntable itself is not large. It mainly depends on the rigidity of the chassis and the structure of the turntable that supports it. When the structural rigidity of the turntable is not enough, the turntable under large eccentric loads The deformation of the bottom plate connected to the slewing mechanism is more serious, which in turn causes the equipment load to concentrate on a small part of the rollers, thereby increasing the pressure on a single roller, resulting in the contacting raceway also bearing a large contact stress, which It is also one of the reasons for the damage to the raceway.

Preventive measures for rotary drive raceway

1. Pay attention to the rated load: the rotary drive should not be overloaded;

2. Correct model selection: Select the appropriate slewing drive according to your needs. When purchasing the slewing drive, you must strictly calculate the various parameters of the slewing drive, and select the turntable bearing that suits the actual needs. road damage;

3. Pay attention to maintenance: maintain regular maintenance, and regularly add lubricating oil to the rotary drive. Only through reasonable maintenance and maintenance can we ensure that the slewing drive raceway is not easily damaged and prolong the service life of the slewing drive.
The above is the answer to the question about whether the raceway of the slewing drive will be damaged. It includes the reasons for the damage of the raceway and preventive measures. In fact, whether it is the drive device or the bearing itself, as mechanical parts, there is a certain fatigue limit, which should be based on Use the guide reasonably and maintain it properly, so as to better play the role and value of the equipment.
