  • Patent number: 9222478
    Abstract: A bladeless fan structure includes a driving member, a pipe member, and at least one air-pressure increasing area. The driving member has a shaft connected and extended through the pipe member, and a first space is formed between an inner surface of the pipe member and an outer surface of the shaft. The air-pressure area is provided on the inner surface of the pipe member or the outer surface of the shaft. The pipe member is provided with at least one opening communicating with the first space and the air-pressure increasing area. When the driving member drives the shaft to rotate in and relative to the pipe member, air in the first space is brought to flow and is compressed in a direction along the air-pressure increasing area to blow out of the pipe member via the opening to achieve the function of a bladeless fan.

  • Patent number: 9226067
    Abstract: A fan active noise self-lowering system includes a fan, a push assembly, at least one pickup unit and a digital signal processing unit. The pickup unit serves to capture the noise made by the fan to generate a noise input signal and transmit the noise input signal to the digital signal processing unit. The digital signal processing unit receives the noise input signal and processes the noise input signal to output a control signal for controlling the push winding assembly to operate so as to push the fan impeller of the fan to move up and down. Accordingly, the fan impeller will generate a reverse sonic wave to offset the noise.

  • Publication number: 20150226230
    Abstract: A series fan frame body structure made of different materials includes at least two fans, which are serially connected with each other. The fan frames of the two fans are made of different plastic materials. Accordingly, the excited frequency of the fan is prevented from being close to the natural frequency of the fan frames. Therefore, the vibration frequencies of the fan frames are different from each other so that the co-vibration is reduced to lower the noise. By means of the series fan frame body structure made of different materials, the problem of vibration of the fan is effectively improved.

    Abstract: A fan frame body structure includes a fan frame. The fan frame has an air inlet and an air outlet. The fan frame body structure is characterized in that the fan frame is composed of multiple frame layers, which are stacked to form the fan frame. The respective frame layers are made of different materials of different compositions with totally different vibration frequencies. The multiple frame layers of different materials with different vibration frequencies are stacked to form the fan frame so as to greatly reduce the co-vibration of the fan frame and lower the noise.

  • Patent number: 9057381
    Abstract: An oil-retaining bearing fan structure includes a fan base seat, an oil-retaining bearing and a fan impeller. The fan base seat has a bearing cup on one side. At least one magnetic member is enclosed in the bearing cup. The magnetic member serves to apply a magnetic attraction force to a shaft of the fan structure to make the shaft quickly restore to its optimal operation position so as to reduce wear and lower the noises and vibration of the fan structure in operation. Therefore, the lifetime of the fan structure can be prolonged.

  • Publication number: 20150159491
    Abstract: A fan wheel structure includes a ring member and a rotor. The ring member has two opposite open ends and an inner space defined between and communicable with the two open ends. A blade seat having a plurality of blades formed therearound is insert-molded on an outer side of the ring member. The rotor includes a hub fitted in the inner space of the ring member to associate with the ring member and the blade seat, and a rotary shaft having a coupling end inserted into the hub. The rotor can be fitted in the inner space of the ring member from either of the two open ends thereof for the completed fan wheel structure to have either a clockwise or a counterclockwise blade rotating direction. Therefore, only one mold, and accordingly an effectively reduced cost, is needed for manufacturing the fan wheel structures of different rotating directions.

  • Publication number: 20150125283
    Abstract: A fan salt-fog-resistant structure and a fan frame thereof. The fan salt-fog-resistant structure includes a base seat having a bearing cup and at least one flow guide body. Multiple connection bodies outward extend from the base seat. The flow guide body is disposed at a junction between the base seat and the connection bodies. The fan frame includes a main body having a first open side and a second open side and a flow passage defined therebetween. One end of the connection body is connected with the second open side. When airflow entraining moisture and salt fog flows through the junction between the base seat and the connection bodies, the flow guide body serves to guide the airflow and prevent the airflow from forming eddy, whereby the salt fog entrained by the airflow will not crystallize to form sediments at the junction between the base seat and the connection bodies.

  • Publication number: 20150055295
    Abstract: A heat dissipation device is arranged in an outer case of an electronic device, and includes an oscillation assembly, an air disturbing member and at least one fixing seat. The oscillation assembly includes a base and an oscillating member provided on the base; and the air disturbing member is connected at a first end to the oscillating member and at an opposite second end to the fixing seat. When an electric power is supplied to the oscillation assembly, the oscillating member is oscillated to thereby vibrate the first end of the air disturbing member, producing a continuous wave of the air disturbing member. The waving air disturbing member in turn disturbs air in the outer case, forcing the air toward a heat source and causing air convection in the outer case to enable largely upgraded heat dissipation efficiency of the electronic device.

  • Publication number: 20140356170
    Abstract: An oil return structure for fan includes a base, a bearing, a retaining ring and a rotor. The base has a bearing cup internally defining a receiving space for receiving the bearing therein. The bearing has a centered and axially extended shaft hole. The retaining ring is located at a front end of the bearing and has a central hole. The rotor includes a hub and a shaft. The shaft is extended through the central hole of the retaining ring into the shaft hole of the bearing, and is provided with an annular groove corresponding to the retaining ring. Oil in the bearing flowing to the annular groove during fan operation is centrifugally pulled out of the shaft and then caught by the retaining ring, from where the oil returns to the bearing. Therefore, loss of oil from the bearing is largely reduced to ensure extended fan service life.

  • Publication number: 20140193258
    Abstract: A swing fan structure includes a main body and multiple blades. The main body has an upper face and a lower face. The main body also has a long side and a short side. The blades are side by side disposed on the upper face of the main body in parallel to each other. The blades define therebetween a flow way. The blades are drivable by the main body to reciprocally move along the long side to create an air volume. The swing fan structure has a greatly minified volume. Also, the swing fan structure overcomes the shortcoming of unstable operation of the conventional fan caused by deflection of the blades in rotation.
