Folded fin heat sinks are created by bending a piece of aluminum sheeting in a fan or fin-like structure that can be soldered to an aluminum or copper base or used in conjunction with heat pipes which transport the heat to be radiated away by the folded fin heat sink.
Folded fin heat sinks allow thinner fins than an extruded heat sink, are lightweight and increase the surface area for managing the generated heat. These are commonly used for custom thermal applications where it needs to very lightweight.
