LYMC Factory OEM Worm Gear Slewing Ring Bearing

First:Factors affecting capacity of slewing ring bearing

1. Structural design

The structural design of slewing ring bearing directly affects its bearing capacity. Designers need to consider factors such as the material, size, shape and type of slewing bearing to ensure that it can withstand the required load.

2, material strength

Slewbacks are usually made of high-strength metal materials, such as steel. The strength of the material determines the compressive and bending capacity of the slewing ring bearing, which affects its bearing capacity.

3, slewing ring bearing type

Slewing supports usually contain a bearing system inside to reduce friction and support rotation. The type and quality of the slewing ring bearing are directly related to the bearing capacity of the slewing bearing. Common bearing types include rolling bearings and plain bearings.

4. Working environment

The bearing capacity of the slewing bearing is also affected by the working environment. For example, if the slewing bearing is operating in high temperatures or harsh chemical environments, the corrosion and heat resistance of the material becomes a key factor.

Second, the method of improving the bearing capacity of the slewing bearing

1. Optimize support structure design

To improve the bearing capacity of the slewing ring bearing, it is necessary to select the bearing with good quality. Secondly, it is necessary to optimize the structural design of the support to improve its bearing capacity. For example, strengthening the contact between the steel ball and the circular raceway in the contact area of the support and increasing the bearing area of the support can effectively improve the bearing capacity of the support.

2. Correct use and maintenance

In addition, the correct use and maintenance of the support is also the key to improve its carrying capacity. Regular inspection and maintenance to ensure the normal operation of the support, can be effective service life.

The factors that affect the bearing capacity of slewing ring bearings are usually tested and evaluated by manufacturers during the design and manufacturing process. When using a slewing bearing, it must be ensured that the load applied does not exceed its carrying capacity to avoid damage or accidents. The specific bearing capacity parameters can usually be found in the technical specifications of the slewing bearing product or the manufacturer’s technical data.

high precision cylindrical roller bearing

The method and advantage of artificial cleaning cylindrical rolling bearing

During the use of cylindrical roller bearings, many substances that reduce the life of the cylindrical roller bearings will be attached. Timing cleaning can increase the life of the cylindrical roller bearings. When artificial cleaning, it is only suitable for small bearing cleaning.

roller bearing Alt.

Artificial cleaning often takes the following methods alone or united:

1. Use hair brush, cotton wire and other tools to directly clean up the stolen goods on the cylindrical roller bearings.

2. Rinse the bearings, spray, or hold the cylindrical roller bearings in the cleaning solution with the shampoo, and motion the bearings to rotate at the same time. This is based on the power of the relative motion between the bearing parts and the liquid on the basis of soaking, and washed away the objects attached to the bearings.

3. Use hot oil, hot water, hot air, and steam to heat the cross roller bearings to dissolve and fall off by lubricating fat.

4. Soak the bearings with a certain liquid medium. The effect is mainly to separate the lubricating fat from the bearings, so that the stolen goods are cleared with the lubricant.

The commonly used mediums are solvents and weak alkaline liquids. Commonly used solvents are kerosene or diesel, because they have a certain decontamination ability and weak volatility. Compared to gasoline, acetone, benzene and other flammable and explosive toxic media are safer. Commonly used weak alkaline liquids include sodium carbonate aqueous solution and some synthetic detergent solutions.

Its main function is to remove lubricants on the bearing through saponification reactions. The cleaning medium should not cause adverse reactions such as corrosion of the bearings. The advantage of artificial cleaning is that there is no need for complex equipment and technology, and less investment.

The disadvantages of artificial cleaning are poor labor conditions, low efficiency, and the quality of cleaning are affected by the factors of the operator. When the roller bearing weight and size are large, it is difficult to clean it. At this time, mechanical cleaning is needed. The cleaning of the bearings is particularly important. Timing cleaning roller bearings can greatly increase the service life of the bearing。

high speed ball slewing ring bearing in stock

1.How to reduce slewing ring bearing tooth noise?

The slewing bearing can stably support the equipment for slewing motion, also known as the turntable bearing. The mechanical equipment needs to rotate without the transmission. The slewing bearing can be made of external teeth or internal teeth, and the rotation of the slewing bearing is realized through the gear transmission.

In practical applications, the force of the slewing bearing is different, the speed of rotation is also different, and the teeth of the slewing bearing are also different. In the process of gear transmission, the contact between the gear and the ring gear of the slewing ring will generate noise, so how to reduce the noise of the slewing ring?

slewing ring bearing Alt.

1. Control the tooth precision. Through long-term practice, we found that if we want to reduce the tooth noise, the tooth precision needs to be controlled at 7-8 grades. The higher the rotational speed, the higher the gear tooth precision requirements. Gear, tooth accuracy should be controlled within 7 grades.

2. Reduce the start-stop or forward and reverse frequency of the gear. Frequent start-stop or forward and reverse rotation will cause the gear to vibrate too fast, and the vibration will generate noise. The faster the vibration, the greater the noise. Reduce the start-stop or forward and reverse frequency, you can Reduce noise.

3. Reduce the impact load. The impact load will make the vibration frequency and torsion direction of the gear different, which will cause vibration in the circumferential direction, which will form a smooth noise. Reducing the impact load can reduce the noise.

4. Reduce the occurrence of resonance, which will generate high-frequency noise. When the motor rotates at a low speed or at a certain speed, the equipment will resonate, causing the gear and ring gear to oscillate at a high frequency and the two oscillating objects will contact. High-frequency noise will be generated, which can generally be reduced by changing the speed or adjusting the position of the equipment.

5. Increase the roughness of the tooth surface. If the roughness of the tooth surface is very poor, it will cause point contact on the tooth surface, and noise will be generated when the high point contact is made. If the roughness of the tooth surface is increased, the tooth surface will be in line contact, and the noise will be very high. Small.

6. Increase the lubrication of the tooth surface. Insufficient lubrication will lead to increased friction, and noise will be generated when the tooth surface is rubbed. Sufficient lubrication can reduce friction and effectively reduce noise.

How many types of slewing bearings?

Slewing Bearing Types:

Rotary bearing is a kind of special medium and large-sized bearing which can bear large radial load, axial load and overturning moment at the same time.

There are several types of slewing bearings which are classified according to their structural forms, common rotary bearings are four-point contact ball bearings, inserted cylindrical roller bearings and double-row reducing ball bearings and three-row combination of cylindrical roller bearings.

slewing bearing Alt.

First:Four-point contact ball slewing bearing

four-point contact ball slewing bearing has a higher dynamic load ability, the main application of dynamic meet the requirements of higher machinery, for example, walking work crane, excavator and so on.

2. Double-row reducing-diameter ball bearing, double-row reducing-diameter ball bearing, three-row cylindrical roller combined rotating bearing because of the load-bearing ability to improve the direction of the height of the guide bearing,

all kinds of loads are received by different raceways and roller groups, so under the same stress conditions, it has the characteristics of making the host more compact, is a high load-bearing capacity of the rotating bearing.

3. Pierced cylindrical roller slewing bearing, pierced cylindrical roller slewing bearing has high static load ability, it is mainly used in working static equipment, and four-point contact ball slewing bearing is just the opposite.

4, three rows of cylindrical roller combination, three rows of cylindrical roller combination slewing bearing due to the increase in load capacity to the bearing height direction.

Second, according to the classification of Rotary Drive

1. The form of transmission can be divided into tooth type and worm and worm type, which inherit the characteristics of gear transmission and worm and worm transmission respectively and can be used in medium-high speed and low speed applications.

2. The transmission mechanism can be divided into open-type rotary drive and closed-type rotary drive.

Usually, the open-type rotary drive will be used in the harsh environment, maintenance and maintenance cycle are relatively short occasions, this is because the open-type structure more convenient inspection and maintenance of the machine, but also more convenient replacement.

The closed-loop rotary drive is mostly used in little change, the level of environmental pollution below the medium, in this case, the closed structure, to provide a longer maintenance life cycle.

Turntable Slewing Bearing Made In China

What are the reasons for the shortened Turntable slewing bearing service life?

The turntable slewing bearing support is widely used in engineering machinery, and it can also be called a turntable bearing. Speaking of the turntable bearing, I believe that everyone should know. There are many reasons for the shortened life.

The reasons for the shortened service life of the turntable slewing bearing support

1. Equipment issues

The rotary branch is knocked directly during installation, and the damage to the turntable slewing bearings with brute force is used. At the same time, the force that the rotary support is rotated will be unevenly used for a long time, causing turntable slewing bearing damage.

If the installation is not in place, there will be an error or the turntable slewing bearing position between the gap device between the rotation support and the installation foundation during installation, and the slewing bearing gap will be too small. The inner and outer circle is not at the same rotation middle point, forming different intentions.

turntable slewing bearing Alt.

2. The carrying capacity of rotation support

Due to the production process, the materials used in the rear branch support have different bearing capacity, the actual operation of the equipment during use exceeds the load of the city’s energy city,

which can easily cause bearing fatigue or collapse, resulting in a serious inheritance of the revolving support. Damage affects the service life of machinery.

3, friction

The friction force is a key factor for all machinery. Dust particles, water or other foreign objects enter the tooth co -convergence of the bearings, increase the friction of the turntable slewing bearings, wear the channel and teeth,

cause damage caused by rust support, cause damage, friction caused by friction Dysfunction is the main factor that leads to a decrease in the use time of rotation support.

4. Lubrication

Not injecting flavors or flax oil in time; flavors or flax oil are not in place; not proper selection of smoothing agents or bold oils; incorrect smoothing methods and so on.

In order to ensure the normal use of the tower machine accessories, when used, you must pay attention to the maintenance of the slewing bearings, apply the lubricant regularly, and do not let the bearings overload for a long time.

Necessity and Adjustment Method of Gear Clearance Adjustment of Slewing Bearing

First. Necessity of gear clearance adjustment of slewing bearing
​​
1. Different applicable work scenarios
​​
The size of the gear clearance of the slewing bearing is related to the characteristics of the gear transmission. When the gear transmission is used for heavy-duty work, the gear clearance needs to be larger. The gap should be smaller.
​​
2. Improper gear clearance affects normal work
​​
The gear transmission of tower cranes and excavators is not only required for heavy-duty work, but also requires frequent forward and reverse rotation, and the speed is not high. Whether the clearance is too large or the clearance is too small, it will have adverse effects.

If the gear gap is too large, the operation of these equipment will not be very smooth, and the gear wear will be more serious; if the gear gap is too small, the lubricating oil film between the slewing bearing gear and the slewing reducer gear will be destroyed, causing The friction between the two becomes larger, and the tooth surface wears faster.

Coupled with manufacturing errors and elastic deformation of the turntable, it is very likely that the gear will be stuck.
​​
Therefore, for heavy machinery such as tower cranes and excavators, in order to ensure the reliability of equipment rotation, it is very necessary to keep the gear gap of the slewing bearing at a moderate size and debug it according to the actual working conditions.

Second, the slewing bearing gear gap adjustment method
​​
1. Meshing tightly to adjust the gap
​​
In the position with high gear meshing tightness, adjust the gear backlash to the rated value. The value of this value should be adjusted strictly according to the given value, otherwise it may cause damage to the slewing ring bearing. In addition, in the process of gear clearance adjustment, it is also necessary to pay attention to the position of the teeth.
​​
2. Use feeler gauge to measure and adjust
​​
When the radial runout of the slewing ring bearing gear reaches a high point, the gear gap can be measured with a feeler gauge. If the gap is different from the given value, the slewing reducer gear can be moved to change the center of the slewing reducer gear and the slewing bearing gear. Correct the distance.

If the slewing reducer gear cannot be moved, it can be adjusted by moving or re-fixing the slewing bearing. After debugging, let the slewing bearing rotate a few times to see if the adjusted clearance meets the requirements. If there is a radial jump of the gear to a higher point, it should be marked and adjusted again.
​​
When adjusting the slewing bearing gear clearance, if there is no gnawing between the slewing ring bearing gear and the slewing reducer gear, and the slewing mechanism can run smoothly, it means that the gear clearance has been adjusted properly.

Reasons and treatment methods for oil leakage of slewing ring bearing

Slewing ring bearings are used in many large-scale mechanical equipment. With the continuous increase of operating time, some faults will inevitably occur in the bearing. For example, the leakage of lubricating oil is one of the common problems.

Many friends reported that after the oil leakage of the slewing ring bearing, the grease remaining on the bearing surface will adhere to a lot of dirt, which is easy to cause corrosion to the bearing.

First. Reasons for oil leakage of slewing ring bearing
​​slewing ring bearing Alt.
1. Frequent filling of lubricating grease or thinning of grease
​​
The more lubricating oil is filled, the better. The oil filling period of the slewing ring bearing is generally between 150 and 250 hours, which can be adjusted according to the operating conditions.

However, if the filling is too frequent, it will cause grease leakage; The hydraulic oil or gear oil escapes into the cavity of the rotating ring gear, which will dilute the lubricating oil and cause oil leakage.
​​
2. Incorrect selection of grease
​​
Bearings and transmissions have suitable grease types. If unsuitable lubricating oil is added, the grease may become thin due to high temperature during operation, and the thin grease will be affected by the driving gear of the rotary motor.

Push down to the upper section of the inner gear ring, and then flow into the bearing cavity through the inner oil seal, and leak from the outer oil seal.
​​
3. Defective or loose outer oil seal
​​
If the rotary oil seal is defective, it will cause partial or section leakage of grease; in addition, the loose oil seal will also cause oil leakage, which can be observed when the equipment is running.

If the oil seal and the equipment rotate at the same time, it means that the existing oil seal is in the sealing groove. It has been loose and needs to be replaced in time (be sure to pay attention to safety during inspection).
​​
4. The inner oil seal is damaged or the slewing ring bearing clearance becomes larger
​​
The damage of the inner oil seal is one of the reasons for the oil leakage of the slewing bearing. You can open the lubricating grease inspection cover of the slewing ring gear to see if there are broken pieces of the oil seal;

in addition, if the bearing clearance becomes larger, the grease will be easily squeezed out during operation. In this case, it is usually accompanied by abnormal noise or shaking of the rotating equipment.

Second, the treatment method of oil leakage of slewing bearing
​​
1. If the seal is aged or damaged, it is necessary to disassemble the old part and clean the sealing groove, and then insert the new seal into the sealing groove completely.
​​
2. If the leakage of the rotary motor causes the dilution or deterioration of the lubricating oil, the rotary motor must be repaired and the grease of the entire rotary gear ring must be replaced.
​​
3. In case of leakage caused by improper selection of grease, all the grease in the rotary gear ring should be replaced, and the same grease should also be used in the bearing cavity.
​​
4. According to the operating conditions of the equipment, reasonably control the oil filling cycle to avoid excessive filling.
​​
5. If the slewing bearing is damaged and cannot be repaired, it must be replaced with a new slewing bearing.

4 point contact ball slewing bearing made in china

1.Five common methods of how to deal with 4 points contact ball slewing bearing damage

Slewing bearing, also known as 4 point contact ball slewing bearing, is a new type of mechanical part composed of inner and outer rings and rolling elements. In various construction machinery such as automobiles, cranes, excavators, etc.,

4 point contact ball slewing bearing is to transmit the axial working load of a turntable and chassis , radial horizontal load and overturning torque key element, it can withstand various loads, and can withstand large axial, radial, and overturning moments, it has been well used in industry, but there will also be some question.

4 point contact ball slewing bearing Alt.

How to deal with 4 point contact ball slewing bearing damage
1. Inflexible rotation
If the rotation is inflexible, you can check the production time of the 4 point contact ball slewing bearing first. If the time is longer (such as more than half a year) or the weather is cold.

it is very likely that the viscosity of the grease in the raceway of the 4 point contact ball slewing bearing will increase, resulting in If the work is not working, you need to increase the power, and then restart it. If it still does not work, you must consult the after-sales service in time.

2, does not work after installation
If it does not work properly after installation, there is a high probability that the matching of the host mounting surface and the rotating support surface is not in place, and the mounting surface of the host needs to be processed to meet the requirements, or the washer filling method can be used, and the size can also be adjusted as needed.

The meshing position of the gears, in particular, pay attention to the beating of the gears, and confirm whether there is any debris in the meshing parts of the large gears. If there is a problem that cannot be solved, you can replace a rotating bearing with a larger clearance.

3. Does not work during use
If it does not work normally during use, add grease in an appropriate amount, inject lubricating oil according to regulations, and check whether any impurities enter the raceway. Broken tooth.

4. Abnormal sound
If there is any abnormal sound, you should first check whether the installation surface is flat, or you can stop the rotation of the 4 point contact ball slewing bearing first, and then confirm whether there is grease in the raceway.

This noise can be eliminated after refueling in time. In addition, pay attention to whether the sealing ring is damaged, whether it is the elastic deformation of the 4 point contact ball slewing bearing caused by the loosening of the mounting bolts, or whether there is a negative gap in the deformed part, etc., you can check whether the above conditions are the first.

5. Swing occurs
If rocking occurs, the mounting bolts of the inner and outer rings should be checked immediately and tightened as specified. Or increase the strength of the steel frame of the support, check whether there is overload work, and operate in strict accordance with the regulations.

High Quality Gear Bearing Made In China

1.How to correctly judge and deal with the peeling of the slewing bearing raceway and the broken teeth of the gear bearing?

Due to the manufacturing quality problems such as material pores or uneven hardness and depth of the hardened layer of the interlayer raceway, or some external reasons, the hardened layer of the raceway is peeled off or the teeth of the ring gear bearing are broken during the use of the slewing bearing, so that the equipment cannot work normally.

For raceway peeling, first make a correct judgment. There is peeling, which is generally not easy to see on the outside. According to our experience, the following conditions indicate that the raceway has peeling layers: when the main engine rotates under load, there is an abnormal “clack-clack” sound at the raceway.

gear bearing Alt.

the rotation speed is uneven or the speed of a certain azimuth is obviously slowed down and accompanied by There is slight vibration; the temperature rise of the rotary motor is too high or the current is too large; the keyway of the rotary motor and the hydraulic coupling or coupling is crushed, etc.

After peeling occurs, it must be repaired in time. Otherwise, the peeling area will expand, so that the entire gear bearing will be scrapped.

The repair method is: first take out the roller or steel ball in the gear bearing to separate the inner and outer rings; then clean the raceway with gasoline; The hardened layer of the cracks that have been generated around is ground off, and the bottom of the peeling layer is ground flat;

the raceway needs to be repaired and welded with a welding torch to preheat, and use a medium carbon steel electrode for welding (the electrode must be dried before use, and followed by The welding layer should be slightly higher than the surface of the raceway by 1-2mm;

if the peeling layer is deep or the area is large, the welding should be applied in layers and sections, and the temperature of the base metal should not be too high to cause deformation;

this avoids Rapid cooling produces welding cracks, and heat preservation measures should be taken immediately after welding to gradually cool him. After cooling, use a grinder to smooth the repair welding layer to make it slightly higher than the surface of the raceway.

Gradually grind the repair welding layer with whetstone or metallographic emery cloth to make it the same height as the normal surface of the raceway.

Use the corresponding original curvature. Test the samples until they are qualified; clean the raceways and rollers (steel balls) with gasoline, apply grease, and complete the assembly.

The reason for the broken teeth of the rotary gear bearing may be that the quality of the cast section of the tooth base material (such as blisters, interlayers and other defects, which will significantly weaken the bending resistance of the gear); stones or steel bars are embedded in the meshing of the gear teeth during use. The hard object increases the local bending stress of the gear teeth and breaks.

The repair method is local repair welding or tooth insert repair. The method of local repair welding is: first grind off the residual crack matrix of the damaged part with a portable grinding wheel, clean it with gasoline (oil);

use a welding torch to preheat this part, After reaching the fixed temperature, use a medium carbon steel electrode to push and weld the prototype of the tooth on the damaged part of the tooth, so that it is 1-2mm higher than the tooth surface of the party; until the tooth shape meets the requirements.

When a whole tooth of the rotary gear ring is damaged, it can be cut along the root of the tooth, and then the tooth root is filed into a fixed shape, and then the next tooth is stored on the same type of waste ring gear bearing, processed into the corresponding shape of the base metal, and then placed into the groove, and use the toothed template to clamp the positioning.

In order to ensure the consistency of the tooth pitch, and after the double-wire chuck is used to increase the value, it is welded with low carbon steel around the tooth. Use a file and other tools to smooth the weld to ensure that the meshing of the gear bearing teeth is stabilized.
