DAMAGE MECHANISMS OF HEAVY LOAD WHEELS IN LOGISTIC APPLICATIONS
Nowadays the logistic jobs need heavier and more powerful floor conveyor systems with high-performance weehls. Standstill period in logistic systems due to unexpected malfunction of those rollers can cause great economic damage. To guarantee the most potential availability of those systems different damage processes must be analysed so that the conditions can be improved. The mechanisms are recorded which can lead to a failure of the heavy load wheels. Depending on the kind of load and the external boundary conditions those wheehls can fail through abrasive wear, thermal failure, or tyre delamination.
