EBM-PAPST has identified Turbodesign-1 as the most suitable tool for developing new axial and radial fans, as it reduces development times of new designs.

In a recent study, EBM-PAPST considered the goal of reducing the manufacturing cost while maintaining high performance for a centrifugal fan.

Starting with a high-performance 3D blade designed with Turbodesign-1, the script version of the code was coupled with an automatic optimiser to achieve a flat 2D blade.

The resulting geometry was a 2D blade with similar performance to the original 3D blade but with cheaper manufacturing costs and easier production.

Ms Bohl, engineer of research and development, aerodynamics, at EBM-PAPST, said: ‘The design process with Turbodesign-1 is very fast, thousands of designs can be carried out overnight, allowing even optimisations with more than 20 input variables.

‘Manufacturing constraints are only one of numerous possible design targets that can be accomplished by coupling Turbodesign-1 with an automatic optimiser, since this method can be used almost universally.’ EBM-PAPST produces more than 55 million fans and motors every year, for markets such as heating and air-conditioning, ventilation, refrigeration, automotive, IT/telecom and drive technology.
