3 Cutting Edge Compressors 3 Outstanding Efficiency Totally oil-free operation Extended life with minimal scheduled maintenance Onboard digital controls and electronics Exceptionally quiet operation Compact Environmentally responsive Figure 2: Turbocor Compressor

4 Introduction Background – Heating of an aluminum housing to allow thermal expansion of the material – Once expanded a stator is inserted into the housing – The housing cools in ambient conditions locking the stator in place through an interference fit 4

5 Product Specification Current method – Large oven requiring extensive floor space – Lengthy heating time ~ 45 minutes – High final temperature ~ 300°F – Four units per cycle – Long cooling time before the technicians can continue assembly ~ 30 minutes 5 Figure 3: Current Oven

6 6 Product Specification Current method – Stator inserted at a secondary station after heating cycle – Precise position required for pneumatic actuator – Additional floor space required for the secondary station Figure 4: Stator Insertion Station

7 Product Specification Engineering Requirements – Reduced heating time, < 8 min. – Lower final temperature – Smaller size – Thermal expansion must allow for 60 microns clearance at maximum material conditions 7

8 Design Approach 8 Problem Specification Preliminary thermal expansion calculations to determine the housing temperature to reach the desired clearance Experimental measurements of housing expansion in a thermal chamber Calculation of heat input needed to achieve the desired temperature using hot air Final design and prototype of heating unit Construction of heating unit proof of concept Experimental testing and design adjustment Final Product Evaluation Spring Events Design concept and component selection based on analysis

17 The Design Concept Re-circulating air over a heater coil within an insulated unit to heat housing Cooling cycle opens lid to hood and activates a blower to circulate ambient air around outside of housing Figure 13: Convection Concept Sketch 17

18 The Design Concept Consists of: – An insulated table and hood – Re-circulating fan – Heater – Cooling fan Figure 14: Provisional Design 18

19 Table Selection Requirements: – Heating unit – Hot air recirculation – Housing locator – Temperature sensors Design chosen: – Utilizes an exterior blower – Has built in return ducts for hot air recirculation Figure 15: Lower Design Section 19

20 Heater Selection Heater chosen: – MSC 5600 watt electric portable heater Figure 16: Electric Heater ( Figure 4: Housing Temperature vs. Time 20 84.6 °C 7.56 min 84.6 °C 7.56 min

21 Hood Selection Requirements: – To retain heat within unit (insulated) – To allow easy insertion and removal of the part in and out of the machine – An opening lid to allow for a cooling cycle Design chosen: – Has two doors, one inlet and one exit – Contains a cooling fan Figure 17: Interim hood Design 21

22 Nozzle Selection Various nozzles are to be tested on their performance of these goals – Even heat distribution – Turbulent flow – High heat transfer Testing method – Smoke generator is used to blow smoke through each nozzle into a clear cylinder for observation – Testing will start next week Figure 20: Nozzle C Figure 19: Nozzle B Figure 18: Nozzle A 22
