The wire rope drum is a widely used machine in lifting machinery, used to lift and pull heavy materials in construction sites, port piers, factories, and mines.
The crane lifting drum typically consists of a drum shaft, flange type annular gear, drum hub, bearings, and bearing pedestal. The drum is designed to handle the weight and tension of the wire rope, and it must be able to rotate smoothly and evenly to ensure safe and efficient operation.
Classification Of Crane Drum
According to the shape: This classification includes smooth drum, spiral groove drum, single drum, double drum, and broken line drum. The smooth drum has a cylindrical surface without any grooves, while the spiral groove drum has grooves that run in a spiral pattern along the length of the drum. Single drum and double drum refer to the number of drums used in a lifting system, with single drum having one drum and double drum having two. A broken line drum is a type of drum with a non-uniform groove pattern, designed for specific lifting applications.
According to the installation and reducer matching: This classification includes take-over reel with gear plate, reel with external gear, reel with coupling, reel with brake disc, and European-style reel. These classifications refer to how the drum is installed and matched with a reducer, which is a device used to reduce the speed of the motor to the required speed of the drum.
According to the matching equipment: This classification includes electric hoist drum, double beam drum group, hoist drum, winch drum, and stereo garage drum. These classifications refer to the different types of equipment that can be used with the crane drum, such as electric hoists, winches, and double beam crane systems.
The different classifications of crane drums can help to identify the specific features and applications of each type of drum. The choice of crane drum will depend on factors such as the lifting capacity, speed, and environment, as well as the specific requirements of the lifting operation.
