Fan mount (Laser-Press-MIG)

Aim: Large fan mount for ’96 BMW.

After swapping M52TUB28 engine into smaller BMW body cooling issue occured. Large fan has beed choosen. Dimensional differencies exacted fan adapters build. Adapters have been designed in SolidWorks with frequency and stress analysys (FEA). After small improvements, which resulted in better simulation performance there have been sheet-metal cutting drawings prepared. Parts have been laser-cutted and bended on press. Contact edges have been welded together. It is a good practise to minimise welds length.
