Course Summary

Introduction

A speed reducer is one of the machine components most commonly used on industrial equipment. It transmits movement or power between two shafts at a constant ratio of speed.

This course covers the different types of speed reducers, their applications and principles of operation, the components of a speed reducer, how to check the condition of speed reducer components, how to analyze the causes of speed-reducer breakdowns, and what corrective measures to take to prevent their recurrence, how to carry out repairs, and the assembly and disassembly of speed reducers.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • types of speed reducers and their uses,
  • disassembly/assembly of a speed reducer,
  • causes of malfunction,
  • preventive maintenance,
  • predictive maintenance, and
  • suggestions for practical exercises.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify the different types of speed reducers, their applications, and principles of operation.
  • List the components of a speed reducer.
  • Check the condition of speed-reducer components.
  • Analyze the causes of speed-reducer breakdowns, take corrective measures to prevent their recurrence where indicated, and carry out repairs.
  • Disassemble/assemble a speed reducer safely.

Recommended Background

  • This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, or conditional monitoring for mining applications.

HumEng International

HumEng provides online courses and assessments for mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, and condition monitoring for applications in mining.

The HumEng mission is to design, develop and implement training solutions that increase operational efficiency and productivity, and to sustain these improvements through training best practices.

The HumEng approach to training is based on skills management. Experience has proven that the acquisition of key skills, and the transfer of these skills to the shop floor, increases a company's competitiveness. This is even truer today, when operations must often rely on fewer employees, due to rationalization or to recruiting challenges.
