Customizing Thermal Pins to Optimize Plastic Mold Cooling

Heat exchangers and their ability to transfer waste heat in highly efficient manners have helped revolutionize thermal management for most of today’s industries. In everything from electrical cabinet and enclosure cooling to wastewater treatment and more, the impacts of streamlined thermal management have been essential for companies that have remained competitive. In the plastic molding industry, heat exchanger technology can be utilized to much greater effect when applied to the molding process. Specialized, customizable thermal pins, which can be designed to fit most existing molding equipment, can make cooling molds as efficient and effective as heat exchangers make cooling electrical enclosures.

Transforming heat exchanger tech for molding processes

Heat exchangers rely on natural principles of transferring waste heat in order to keep electrical enclosures, such as control panels, consistently cooled. The heat transfer process is a significant step forward from more traditional cooling solutions, like HVAC processes, that utilize chilled air for electrical cooling. Transferring heat doesn’t require as complicated a process, and the equipment used to achieve it doesn’t require as much maintenance. By utilizing the same principles of heat transfer, thermal pins can enhance the speed and efficiency with which companies can remove heat from superheated molds.

High-quality cooling equals high-quality molds

Transferring waste heat isn’t just more efficient than traditional solutions; it can also provide higher-quality cooling for applications that require more advanced electrical cooling. For instance, specialized heat exchangers are often utilized in innovative applications such as high-performance computers. When applied to plastic mold cooling, these same methods can help companies achieve higher-quality molds at much faster rates. Thermal pins are designed to rapidly remove heat from all sizes of a mold, and using heat transfer principles allows them to do so continuously with optimal efficiency. Because their nearly isothermal, thermal pins also help improve the quality of each mold and reduce the risks of errors due to uneven heat removal.

Custom solutions for all types of molding equipment

The advantages of using heat exchanger technology to cool plastic molds has become increasingly more well-known throughout the molding industry. These benefits are easier for companies to enjoy because thermal pins can be designed to fit most types of molding equipment, so they don’t have to invest heavily in completely renovating their operations. With minimal investments, companies can enjoy the many savings that come with reducing energy usage and the boost in productivity that stems from more streamlined mold cooling.
