Re: WHIRL MIXER

Technically, this is what the drawing defines without further information. No method of attachment of the vanes. Also, dimensions b & c are assumed as 30 and 50, although it leaves a non-circular center. Post machined? Are b & c accommodation values to better represent a circular center and circumference?

If the original drawing is a DXF, you should be able to get b & c values, but looking at the drawing, and the vane thickness of the other vanes in the section, I might not trust that either.

Re: WHIRL MIXER

It looks like an air diffuser plate. The outside circle is a "plate/ring" of material. The inside eight items are vanes that once cut (probably laser cut) are bent on a 30 degree angle. with the edge of the vanes still attached to the "plate/ring". I saw them a lot in the boiler industry to create a swirl in the air stream to mix air and fuel for combustion. The inside circle is a void - or absence of material.

Thanks, Dale

Re: WHIRL MIXER

The drawing is certainly not complete... is it a stamping, is the vain interface to the disk welded? Essentially, the details of the transition is missing. If it is formed, then the internal tooth star washer is agood example.

Re: WHIRL MIXER

The boiler company I worked for had been around since 1865, and we had drawing that were 100 plus years old. Some took training from one builder to the next to understand how to fabricate it from the 2d drawings.

Re: WHIRL MIXER

I use Creo 2.0 so your version could not open the PRT file.

See the attached step file.

Re: WHIRL MIXER

If there's an overlap in the vanes, it can't be stamped. If it's plastic, you'll need a spinning core or 2, and draft gets complicated. If it's a weldment, it's ok.

Re: WHIRL MIXER

It can if you stamp hard enough.

That's what purchasing agents are tought... "stamp your foot hard enough and the earth will move for you..."
