Wind energy, one of the important green energy sources, is gradually replacing fossil fuels, helping everyone in the 21st century to ensure that we have enough energy to power cars, refrigerators, heating, homes, and business center. The installation of wind turbines is therefore an ongoing and important project around the world. However, affected by terrain, height and other factors, the installation of wind turbines is not so easy, which is why Liebherr LR1600 and LR1750 crawler cranes are active in almost every wind energy site, such as mountain, flat lands, and even offshore sites.

The Undercarriage plays an important role in the movement and load-bearing of the Liebherr LR1600 and LR1750 crawler cranes, and a long service life is a necessary factor for the crawler crane to complete the project smoothly and safely. Downtime is expensive, the poor quality undercarriage parts are prone to horrendous damage, resulting in huge losses due to the following factors,

 

a. The Liebherr crawler shoe has casting defects, and there are cracks that are not easy to observe with the naked eye, and are easily broken when bearing loads.

b. The mechanical properties of the Liebherr track shoes and rollers are not within a reasonable range. Whether it is insufficient hardness, or insufficient toughness caused by excessive hardening, it is easy to break and damage during work.

c. The inner seal of the Liebherr rollers and guide wheels is not good, and oil leakage occurs during the rotation process. When the lubricating oil is quickly lost, the frictional force increases, so that the wheel body and the copper sleeve are quickly damaged in a short time.

d. When the Liebherr LR1600/ LR1750 crawler crane travels and works on the ground that is not flat enough, if the operation is not standardized, and the ground is not assisted in time, the crawler shoes especially the 2m-width version, are unevenly stressed and break when lifting heavy objects, which is also very dangerous.
