Choosing the right heat sink is essential. So is HOW YOU ATTACH IT to your hot components? Learn about this important step in deploying a thermal management solution at our webinar “How to Choose the Right Heat Sink Attachment for Component Packages of all Sizes and Shapes”. Clips, push pins, tapes and other methods will be reviewed for popular SoC and SiP packages.
A handy technical reference sheet and white paper on attachment types will be provided to those who register through a download button during the online seminar.
This webinar is pre-recorded and presented by ATS Product Engineering Manager, Greg Wong. Q&A is an important part of both our Live and Pre-Recorded Webinars. Attendees can submit a question by clicking the floating question button in the bottom-right corner during the webinar on May 26. After the session, Greg will respond to each of your questions and follow up questions.
ATS’ founder and President, Dr. Kaveh Azar, will be on webinar panel, discussing “MARKET FORECAST FOR THERMAL MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGIES IN THE TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY” April 5th, 2PM EST
The electrification of the transportation market is leading the demand for innovations in thermal management. From battery cooling to power electronics, thermal challenge solutions are critical to increasing performance, safety and power. Given the predicted expansion of the market, understanding how and which thermal management technologies will play an integral role in this development will be key to facilitating and maintaining successful growth for key stakeholders across the supply chain.
This will webinar will answer these questions:
How is the transportation market predicted to grow over the next five to 10 years?
How will this drive demand for thermal technologies?
Which technologies will be critical to providing solutions for thermal challenges and subsequently to supporting this growth?
This webinar is a panel discussion as part of Thermal Management Expo. The Panel includes: Dr. Kaveh Azar, President, Advanced Thermal Solutions, inc., Alexis Dagenais Everell, Thermal Management Engineer, Lion Electric and James Edmondson, Senior Technology Analyst, IDTechEx. The webinbar is Tuesday April 5, 2022 12:00PM EST.
Bending heat pipes needs to be done carefully, with the right tool, in order for the bend to be accurate, reliable, and reproducible. There are a few ways to do that.
One way is with a jig. A jig could be a pipe of some kind or even a vise. The objective is to have something to bend the heat pipe against or to keep it stable so you can bend it. While inexpensive, this method may not produce an accurate bend. Care should also be taken not to crimp or break the heat pipe, which would reduce the heat pipe’s ability to transport the heated fluid from the hotspot where the heat pipes’ evaporator is to the condenser section in order to remove the heat.
A second method that can be used is an off the shelf, heat pipe bender or tube bender. They come in various sizes from single hand to double handheld, with various arm lengths. These can often be found at hardware and home improvement stores such as Home Depot, Amazon or Grainger. Often times these are plumbing tools, meant for bending copper piping of various diameters. The plus side to his method is that is more precise than using a jig, they are relatively inexpensive and generally easy to source. A down side to this approach is that these types of benders may not allow for the millimeter sized diameters of heat pipes used in electronics cooling.
A third way is using a precision tool purpose built for bending heat pipes used in electronics cooling. A few companies make these, including Wakefield-Vette and Advanced Thermal Solutions.
Heat Pipe Bending! ~~ If you’ve ever tried bending a heat pipe for a lab application or even for production, you probably tried a vise, or maybe a prosumer type heat pipe bender from a hardware store. Maybe you put in a CNC machine even! But ATS has a tool that is perfect for the job! Click the link for a 2 min. video demo and to see where to get them. And yes we do customs! https://www.qats.com/Products/Heat-Pipes/Heat-Pipe-Bending-Tool
