Scroll Wheel Modification

A scroll wheel that needed modifications done in order to ensure proper functionality and increase longevity.

Application of Metrology

Application of Metrology

Metrology instruments were used to verify the dimensional accuracy of the scroll wheel. These dimensions were then used to reverse-engineer the wheel in Solidworks for use in design modification.

Jeff Joos, owner of Joos Fabrication and located in Washington Illinois, was able to provide PMP with proper, clean TIG welding for the scroll wheel. After two years of use, the wear from the product had eaten the fins on the outer edge of the stainless steel. This was corrected by additional welds on the fins.

Design Choices to Improve Efficiency

Design Choices to Improve Efficiency

Problems were encountered in the original design of this wheel, such as buildup and wear. TWG implemented changes requested by the client to improve efficiency and prolong the lifespan. The additional plates welded on the inside of the wheel improved product flow and prevented buildup.
