As a ‘one size fits all’ approach doesn’t work well when it comes to many products, particularly fans, ACI is able to offer a uniquely flexible approach to each and every customer specification.
Standard is not always best
Like many manufacturers, we have a number of standard ranges, providing for various volume and pressure ratios in a wide variety of construction materials including aluminium, mild steel, stainless steel, PTFE/Teflon coated and special paint finishes (such as C5M for offshore applications). We also offer a large choice of motor types, voltages, frequencies, speeds and manufactures.
However, providing a custom fan offer can provide many benefits to our customers and this includes significant cost-efficiencies and energy savings. For example, if a fan from a standard fan range is too small, it won’t be able to do its job properly. If the next size up is too big for that particular job, then the excess costs in energy alone could more than double the long-term costs of the fan.
So, for the greatest efficiency and best performance possible, the fan needs to be custom-designed specifically for the customer’s unique application. Whether it be a single unit order or a continuous requirement from a multinational OEM, ACI has the capabilities to assist with all application and customer types.
Designed from start to finish
At the very heart of this is our extensive and ongoing investment in design and manufacturing technology which has helped ACI to build a hugely experienced technical design department. As well as providing modifications to standard products, the team are on-hand to support customers with any fan related or drying/de-dusting issues that they may have.
Here at ACI our experienced technical design team use an array of design software including, Autodesk Inventor 2014 (for 3D modelling, drawings, basic rendering & animation), Autodesk Showcase 2014 (for rendering, animation, storyboards, etc), and Autodesk AutoCAD Mechanical 2014 (for 2D CAD work). We also offer outline drawings, assembly drawings and layouts along with 3D models of any of our products and systems.
A dedicated in-house laboratory testing facility is also available to test product prototypes so that customers can be assured that our advanced and innovative products meet all expectations. Our fan testing capabilities can measure air flow, pressure and current and here we can also create original, bespoke designs, to solve any specific problems.
Many of our fan types can be manufactured to meet to both ATEX and IECEx regulations and we also have an ISO 9001:2015 quality management system and ISO 14001:2015 certified factory. Furthermore, all ACI products are supplied with a full performance guarantee and carry the CE Mark to ensure complete customer satisfaction.
If you have any fan requirements or specifications that aren’t addressed here, ACI has the knowledge and expertise to assist you.
