Product design ideas from professional Track Shoes supplier of GT

May 16, 2024 | News

Track shoes are one of the chassis parts of construction machinery and are also a wearing part. They are commonly used in construction machinery such as excavators, bulldozers, crawler cranes, and pavers. GT is a professional Track Shoes suppliers, providing you with reliable quality Track Shoe products and other mini excavator parts. Our Durable Polyurethane Track Pads for Excavators has a huge clientele and reputation across the world.

Design points of GT Track Shoes

According to different working environments and operation requirements, the appropriate type of track shoes should be selected. For example, when operating in wetlands, wetland track shoes should be selected with large ground contact area, high buoyancy, and no tooth tips; in rocky soil conditions, rock-type track shoes should be selected with high strength and good wear resistance.

As a Track Shoes suppliers, when designing track shoe products, we fully consider factors such as the specific ground pressure, the engagement soil capacity between the track bars and the ground, flexural strength, and wear resistance.

For example, Durable Polyurethane Track Pads for Excavators design focuses on adhesion, flexural strength and wear resistance, and is equipped with mud removal holes to automatically remove mud from the link rails. In addition, the pitch of the track shoe and the design of the overlap lip are also very important. They affect the smooth operation, wear and tear of the track chain and the driving efficiency during walking.

In addition, the production and processing technologies of track pads include casting, rolling or forging, and welding. Chinese mini excavator parts manufacturers mainly use casting methods to produce track shoes, but due to the existence of casting defects, the product yield and reliability need to be improved.

Our products use welding technology, which greatly improves the stability and quality of the products and extends the service life of the track shoes.

GT Track Shoes product material selection

The material of the track shoes has a significant impact on its performance. Different materials determine the strength, hardness, wear resistance, toughness, and crack resistance of the track pads. These characteristics are directly related to the service life of the track pads and the operating efficiency of the construction machinery.

First of all, steel track shoes are widely used for their high strength, high toughness and good wear resistance.

Secondly, cast iron track shoes also have high strength and wear resistance, but they are harder, which may cause them to be prone to brittleness. Therefore, cast iron track shoes may not be suitable in certain working environments, and care must be taken to avoid excessive shock and vibration during use.

Rubber track shoes have the advantages of being lightweight, having a small friction coefficient, causing little damage to the road surface, and having good shock absorption and noise reduction effects. However, the production cost of rubber track shoes is high, and the friction surface requirements are high, so they cannot be used in high temperature and high speed scenarios.

In addition, there are some composite track shoes,such as our Durable Polyurethane Track Pads for Excavators The materials of these track shoes are diversified and can be combined according to the needs of the actual scene to achieve excellent wear resistance and good impact resistance. Composite track shoes are outstanding in adaptability and stability, but they may also have higher costs.
