An OEM is an original equipment manufacturer. When manufactures decide to discontinue products or goes out of business, it has the purchasers and users of the product searching for solutions when they need another one. At Fan and Fab, Horner has an ace in its sleeve. We are able to fabricate obsolete fans and parts for our customers. Above is a 67” fan wheel that was sent to us from a customer. It was severely damaged and the OEM was no longer in business. Fan was able to document all the components and develop a CAD file, then laser cut the new parts and fabricate the wheel. This was challenging because the blades were a curved airfoil made from heavy gage steel. The hub was sandblasted, examined, and re-used saving the customer 50% on the cost of a new one. The wheel was assembled, welded, and balanced and ready to ship.
