Today’s electronics carry one main problem with heat. The smaller sizes of electronics may lead to a shorter life span for the item. The reason is because market expectation wants the power behind the devices to increase while the device gets smaller.
When this type of forced convection is needed, cross-cut extrusions help the thermal performance of the products. Limitations that are placed on the electronics drive up the cost of heat removal from the smaller design size.
There’s two ways that are used to improve heat transfer.
The coefficient of heat transfer serves as a measurement for the effectiveness of heat removal from the surface.
There are a few different ways that the coefficient is increased:
As aluminum heat sink manufacturers, Getec offers a full line of heat sinks. Our high performance ratios include extrusions of 35:1 on a consistent basis.
