2013-12-17 08:51:10 - GlacialTech has now developed innovative cold forging technology for LED thermal modules. The thermal conductivity can be improved 2.36x compared to die casting from 96.2 W/mK to 227 W/mK.
GlacialTech Inc., which was established in 2001 by a team with many years of experience in thermal module design and manufacturing for internationally renowned brands including Apple, Canon, Dell, Foxconn, HP and Intel, is a diversified provider of thermal, power, optics and systems solutions.
Since being established, GlacialTech has designed thermal modules for Acer, AdvanTech, Fujitsu Siemens Computers GmbH, Panasonic and Siemens AG. GlacialTech's thermal solutions are designed with a focus on cost-effective performance, as well as weight and noise reduction. Applications include commercial and industrial computers, telecommunication products and LED lighting solutions.
To diversify from thermal products, GlacialPower, the power division of GlacialTech, was established in 2006. Since then, GlacialPower has introduced more than 100 models of customer-focused LED drivers.
GlacialTech also entered the LED lighting industry with its GlacialLight division. In addtion to providing energy efficient LED lighting fixtures in various form factors, GlacialLight has also innovated in the field of lighting control systems, developing a DALI interface converter supporting 0-10 V, 1-10V and PWM dimming functions.
GlacialTech has now developed innovative cold forging technology for LED thermal modules. Cold forging produces heat sinks that have better heat dissipation than die-casting and aluminum extrusion. Using AA1070 aluminum, thermal conductivity can be improved 2.36x compared to die casting from 96.2 W/mK to 227 W/mK.
GlacialTech‘s unique copper/aluminum cold forging seamless joining technology greatly enhances thermal conduction and reliability when copper is embedded to make sure the two materials are joined together seamlessly during the manufacturing process.
The two materials work together to improve heatsink performance. The copper component conducts heat quickly from the bottom to the entire transverse surface. The high thermal conductivity of the aluminum fins lets heat dissipate quickly. GlacialTech's new copper/aluminum cold forging technology is the most cost effective and lightweight thermal solution when space is at a premium.
