Heat sinks in thermal management

We deliver aluminium heat sinks that meet your design needs and technical requirements. Friction stir welded heat sinks offer better thermal efficiency than bonded or pressed fin products.

We offer heat sink design, development expertise and resources, advanced simulation, measuring equipment plus a network of metal, mechanical, physical and chemical specialists to help meet any requirement.

Heat sink design

Heat sinks are often made of aluminium, a cooling metal that is easier to extrude or work into heat sink application profiles, than copper. It is also easier to create custom aluminium heat sink profile variations. When extruded in a fin, profiles can easily be attached to a copper base, conducting a large amount of thermal energy to the lighter, less expensive aluminium alloy cooling fins. 

If you manufacture equipment for telecommunications, electrical, automotive or electronic applications that requires heat dissipation from a hot surface, you will need some kind of thermal management system and heat sink. You should consider an aluminium solution. 

Contact us so we can discuss your project and talk about how we can make it better.
