Single row cable reels are often used in the study of cable reels by heavy port machinery equipment, but there are problems of less cable capacity and larger circumferential space. In the design of the traditional heavy machinery cable drum design concept principle as the basis, on the basis of the drum structure optimization and strength check. According to the design of cable parameters, it is concluded that the winding of drum occupies less space, the cable is arranged in a regular order and can accommodate a large amount of cable. In this paper, Ansys Workbench is used for structural mechanical analysis of the drum body, and the final results show that the maximum stress of the drum under the working load is far less than the allowable stress value. By analyzing the mechanical state under the working condition, the effect of cable capacity increase is obvious, and the relative mass is reduced, and the stability of the drum structure meets the requirements.
