Small crane and smaller tonnage transmission structure are suitable for the traditional wheel mechanism and walking system of the seaport wharf, which cannot be applied to large hoisting machinery for seaport wharf. To address this problem, a large hoisting machinery wheel mechanism and walking system is designed in this paper. The related parameters of the cycloid gear and the piecewise cycloid equation of the tooth profile are determined. The size of the cycloid gear of the wheel mechanism is chosen and the hardware of the wheel mechanism and walking system is designed. The ADAMS software is introduced to analyze the dynamics of the wheel mechanism, and the walking ADAMS/View model of the wheel mechanism is established. The applied binding force and the feasibility condition of the horizontal turning are determined. The software of the wheel mechanism and walking system is designed. Experimental data show that the designed wheel mechanism and walking system can carry on the large hoisting machinery and has high efficiency.
