FREDERICK R. STILL, OF DETROIT, MICHIGAN, ASSIGNOR TO AMERICAN BLOWER COMPANY, OF DETROIT, MICHIGAN, A CORPORATION OF MICHIGAN.

FAN WHEEL AND METHOD OF MAKING THE SAME Application filed 1913735,

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, F RnoEiucK R. STILL, a citizen of the United States, residin at Detroit, in the county of Wayne and tate of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fan 'heels and Methods of Making the Same, of which the following is a specification, reference being bad therein to the accompanying drawings. This invention relates to improvements in fan wheels and more especially to'fan wheels of light build having long narrow blades and a large intake, and has for its object to provide an improved, simple, st-ron light 16 fan wheel structure of this nature t at can be roduced at low cost.

eretofore in the art, it has been proposed to secure the blades to the blade-supporting elements by riveting but such constructions fhave proven unsatisfactory, the joints or connections between the parts soon shaking loose and rattling. Furthermore, riveting is especially unsuitable and is seriously objectionable in the manufacture of fan wheel structures of light build of the character referred to because the shock incident to the usual riveting operationtlamages the parts, and affects the trueness of the wheel. A particularly important novel characteristic of the present invention resides in the special method and means for securing the parts together, whereby a strong more durable structure is produced, the securing of the parts easily and more quickly effected without ineting of the parts, as commonly practiced, being entirely avoided.

Other important novel features of the invention lie in the special formation of the arts whereby they are adapted to be cheapy produced from stock materials, sheet metal sta'mpings, pressed or drawn steel, and other metals, and the particular formation of the parts for reinforcement purposes thatresults in a simple, li ht structure pos-' sessing great strength and rigidity, and in a considerable reduction in the cost of manufacture.

The invention, with other objects and advantages thereof, and the particular construction, combination and arrangement of parts comprising the same. will be understood from the following detailed description, when considered in connection with the accompanying drawings forming part herejurious shock or pressure to the parts, riv- 1920. Serial No. 384,056.

of and illustrating embodiments of the invention.

- In the drawings Figure 1 is a longitudinal section of a fan wheel or runner constructed in accordance with the present invention.

Figure 2 is a detail view on an enlarged scale showing in side elevation a section of one of the end plates with some of the projecting end portions of the blades arranged in posit-ion prior to the welding operation, and other end portions of blades after the welding operatiom Figure 3 is a detailed section, on an enlarged-scale, of an end portion of one of the blades and one of the supporting plates, illustrating the relation of the parts prior to the welding operation.

Figure 4 is .a view similar to Figure 3 after the welding operation.

Figure 5 is a similar view illustrating a modified method of welding.

Figure 6 is an end elevation of a slightly modified construction of fan wheel.

Figure '7 is a longitudinal sectional view of the construction illustrated in Figure 6.

Figures 8 and 9 e detailed views of one of the complete 'ilades of the construction illustrated in Figures 1 to 4, inclusive.

Figures 10- and 11 are detailed views of one of the blade blanks.

Fi ire 12 is a side elevation of the welding e ectrodes and the supporting means for the fan wheel parts.

\Vhile in the drawings I have illustrated two specific embodiments of the invention,

it will of course be understood that minor changes and variations in the particular constructions shown and the carrying out of the invention in other forms as will appeal to those skilled in the art and falling within the scope of the appended claims, may be racticed without departing from the spii it of the invention.

Referring to Figs. 1 to 4, inclusive, the structure shown comprises end plates or disks A, B, and blades C rigidly secured at opposite ends to the end plates. The end plates A, B, which are circular in form and open at the center, in the form of rings, are

provided with outwardly extending lateral ioo reinforcing flanges, the plate A having two of such flanges a, a at its inner and outer marginal portions. and the end plate B having one of such flanges b at 1ts out-er marand m ginal pert. At its inner marginal portion the blade .6 has an inward attaching extension 5'".

ojccting poi-"ions c of the blades.

as or rule rsiallv h,

The tenons or integral pror of the blades are subjected simultaneously to heat through the medium of an electric cu rent, and pressure, to melt down the outer en 7 portions thereof, and to press the met: inwardly to fill up the initial space between the tenons or integral projecting portions and the aperture Wall, and to weld the parts together. the structure after the Welding operation being shown in Figs 2 and or" the drawings. the tenons or inprojecting portions 0 being of sulficient length to provide the metal necessary to fill up the in b1 3 space between the parts the joint shown. In the manufacture of the particular construction illustrated in the drawings the blades and end plates assembled are supported by a clamp comprising members K, K. or other suitable means, the projecting portion or portions C of the blades extending through the apertures (4 ,6 in the plates spaced from the walls of the apertures as indicated in Figure 3 of the drawings. An electric welder is provided having a pair of electrodes M, M, one of which is movable relatively to the other, the electrodes being adapted to be brought together to contact with the projecting ends of one of the blades and apply pressure thereto simultaneously with the application of heat. The fan Wheel parts clamped together in assembled relation are supported to position one of the blades between the electrodes (see Figure 12 of the drawings). Sue end of the blade is placed in contact with one of the electrodes of the welder, and the other electrode is moved down on to the other projecting end portion of the blade. Simultaneously with the contact of the movable electrode with the end of the blade, the current is turned on, the ends or the blades become heated almost white hot and welded to-the end plates, the projecting end portions of the blades being melted down and under the pressure of the electrodes, filling up the intervening spaces.

The blades (1 are blanked from sheet steel or other sheet metal, as indicated in l0 and 11' or the drawings, the blades,

being afterwards curved as shown in Figs. 8 and 9 of the drawings.

"It will be understood that the number of the tenons or integral projecting portions 0 for each blade may be varied to suit the dill'crent conditions, one of said projections being sullicient in some instances.

In Fig. 5 of the drawings is illustrated another method of Welding the parts. This consists of filling the spaces between the tenous or integral projecting portions of the blades and the apertured wall with thermitc or the like, and by the application of heat. melting the same to Weld the parts together.

The modified construction illustrated in Figs. 6 and 7 of the drawings is the same as that shown in Figs-l. to 4, inclusive except that the end plates F, are shown plain, without reinforcing flanges, the fan structure being somewhat smaller, and the extension g of plate G is shown larger.

As will be understood, the end plates and blades are adapted to be cheaply produced from stock materials by stamping, pressing or analogous methods, the openings in the plates being formed by punching.

By the special construction and arrangement of parts hereinbcfore described, a sim ple, light structure is afiorded that posscsscs great. strength and rigidity, and one that can be produced at low cost. The special method and means for securing the parts results in a more eiiicient joining of the parts together, substantially an in-' tegral structure being provided, and greatly lessens the cost of production. The rivetmg process-as commonly followed in the art is dispensed with, the assembling and connection of the parts may be more easily and better accomplished, the welding o oration facilitated, and a strong, smooth y finished product and perfectly true Wheel produced.
