Thermal Engineering Services:
Concept to Production

Make a thermal management concept a reality by turning to the established, experienced Aavid Thermacore design and engineering team. Our expertise helps us develop both unique and specialised solutions as well as mass-produced products.

Custom Thermal EngineeringGive your products best-in-the-industry thermal performance by letting Aavid Thermacore apply our “toolbox” of new, leading-edge technology, developed through 40 years of experience in the field. Our team's advanced technology efforts have furthered, and will continue to further the state-of-the-art in conduction, single- and two-phase cooling as well as advanced manufacturing processes to move the technology to real world application and volume manufacturing.

The sintered wick copper water heat pipe, today’s world standard, started its world-wide commercial application as an Aavid Thermacore technology development! We've also responded to hundreds of widely divergent thermal challenges for both OEMs and government agencies in markets ranging from computers to medical equipment to military and aerospace.

Some of the leading-edge thermal technologies developed or refined by Aavid Thermacore include:

  • Solid Conduction
    • Advanced solid conduction systems like k-Core® Annealed Pyrolytic Graphite-based satellite radiator panels
  • Heat Pipes
    • Cryogenic heat pipes and loop heat pipes that operate to 25K
    • High-temperature heat pipes that operate at 2,000° C and have demonstrated the world's highest measure heat flux in a heat pipe (125,000 W/cm2)
    • Establishing the sintered powder wick heat pipe as the world standard for high-performance two-phase cooling
    • Developed and patented the vapour chamber or Therma-Base® planar heat pipe technology
  • Loop Heat Pipes
    • Establishing North America's first expertise and manufacturing capability for loop heat pipes through exclusive licence of the technology from Russia in 1990
  • Pumped Liquid Cooling
    • Developed and brought to market the first high-volume commercial pumped single-phase liquid cooling system for desktop PC and graphics card cooling
  • Thermal Systems
    • Commercial application of the first self-contained electronics cabinet cooling system combining air-to-air heat exchange, heat pipe technology and pumped liquid cooling for application in harsh environments

Make Thermacore Your Engineering Partner

Whatever design constraints and requirements you face — thermal, mechanical, environmental, space and size — Aavid Thermacore can develop the ideal solution, a solution that’s mass production-ready. We also work together with your engineering team to meet real-world production challenges like tight timeframes, containing costs, bringing products to market faster and we deliver solutions to all these needs.

Aavid Thermacore custom services include a full spectrum of leading-edge capabilities.

Thermal Engineering Design and Analysis

Let Thermacore take your thermal concept and use it as the basis for efficient, timely development of a solution to your problem, addressing all engineering aspects of the process: mechanical design, thermal analysis, structural modelling and CFD analysis. Our experienced engineering team, using validated modelling techniques, can save both time and money by getting the design right the first time, eliminating hardware iterations and developing a solution more quickly and rapidly — enabling you to shorten your time-to-market.

Thermal Prototype Fabrication

In addition to thermal performance test, Thermacore's extensive fabrication and test capabilities include helium leak testing, material testing, thermal cycle testing, thermal shock testing and mechanical vibration/shock testing. Our experienced, well-equipped and talented staff will develop the solution you require — focused on meeting your specific thermal challenges.
