Welcome to the fascinating world of thermal heat sink innovations! We utilise cutting-edge thermal analysis software to deliver top-notch thermal solutions that encompass natural convection, forced convection, and liquid cooling thermal analysis procedures.

With our comprehensive range of thermal solutions, we’re proud to specialise in skiving fin heat sinks, aluminium extrusion heat sinks, and soldered heat sinks. Our versatile products have found robust applications across various sectors such as telecom, aerospace, automotive, industrial control, power electronics, medical instruments, security electronics, LED lighting, and multimedia/consumer electronics.

Our tailored heat sinks are designed to efficiently tackle your product’s heat dissipation challenges. They not only mitigate potential risks but also ensure optimised noise reduction and cost-effectiveness.

Extruded aluminium has emerged as a top choice for cost-effective heat sink fabrication.

Explore our vast selection of Standard Extruded Heat Sinks that cater to your specific needs.

If you’re looking for high fin density unavailable through extrusion technology, consider our Skived Fin heat sinks. These exceptional alternatives are crafted using a special technique that peels off a thin layer of metal from either copper or aluminium and bends it into a fin-like structure.

To maximise the cooling surface while minimising volume, try our soldered fin assemblies. Initially developed for aerospace and military markets, these efficient heat sink solutions are now popular among commercial users. Choose from an extensive variety of styles, materials, and fin densities customised to fit your forced convection or natural convection cooling systems.

Liquid Cold Plate Solutions

Liquid cold plates serve as a bridge between high-heat surfaces and the cooling fluid within a liquid cooling system, effectively dissipating the heat.

These plates contain a coolant that circulates around components, absorbing the released heat and carrying it away. While there are various types of liquid cold plates, their quality control during manufacturing makes all the difference.

Substandard liquid cold plates can underperform, potentially causing premature device failure. That’s why it’s essential to understand the importance of quality control in liquid cold plate production.

To ensure high-quality liquid cold plates are manufactured, proper quality control measures must be in place. Curious to know more about these aspects? Read on!

Often referred to as water cooling blocks, liquid cold plates are incredibly efficient at removing heat – about 4-5 times more so than standard air-cooled heat sinks and fans. The concept is simple: a cool liquid (such as water or ethylene glycol/water mix) enters the water block and flows through its chambers, absorbing heat from power electronics before exiting at a higher temperature.

Aluminium or copper are common materials for liquid cold plate construction due to their excellent thermal conductivity. Aluminium options are versatile and apt for most requirements, while copper-based ones excel at moving heat.

Liquid cold plates provide a high level of heat transfer by conducting heat from metal components to the cooling fluid. Common applications include compact designs for electric vehicles, power generation devices, medical equipment, military and aerospace products, and lasers.

These plates employ a pump to circulate the coolant through the heat pipe, dissipating heat in the process. The absorbed heat gets released externally through a radiator attached to the back of the device. A liquid cold plate heat sink, made of copper or aluminium, has an internal water channel that directly contacts the CPU, absorbing its heat. The coolant flows within the circulating pipeline due to the action of a water pump in what is commonly known as a water cooling system.
