The ability to rapidly and efficiently transfer waste heat has been a transformative innovation for electrical thermal management. In modern cooling solutions, such as heat exchangers, this ability has allowed companies in all industries to benefit from more efficient and streamlined electrical cooling processes. However, the same ability has also had significant implications for thermal management processes that go far beyond electrical cooling. For example, in the plastic molding industry, customized solutions such as thermal pins can utilize the same capabilities to create faster, more reliable, and more efficient plastic mold cooling.
Taking lessons from conventional heat exchangers
The ability for electrical cooling solutions like heat exchangers to transfer heat on a consistent basis is the cornerstone of their transformative capabilities. Within most common electrical cooling applications, heat exchangers are designed to constantly absorb waste heat as electrical components generate it. The fluid that absorbs the heat can then rapidly transfer it to a heat sink and dissipate it, then loop back to continue absorbing more waste heat. By following the same heat transfer principles, custom solutions such as thermal pins are able to translate the same efficiency to the cooling of plastic molds.
The value of high-quality cooling for plastic molds
In electrical cooling, the efficiency with which heat exchangers transfer waste heat accounts largely for the improved efficiency company’s enjoy in the rest of their operations. In plastic mold cooling processes, that significance is amplified. The ability to rapidly, efficiently, and evenly cool plastic molds is the cornerstone of the production processes, and the rate at which a solution can cool each mold can determine a company’s overall output. Custom-designed thermal pins are able to maintain consistent cooling with optimal efficiency and minimal energy, helping companies save significantly on overhead costs.
Utilizing custom thermal pins for different types of molds
In addition to being more efficient and energy effective, custom-designed thermal pins are also nearly isothermal, allowing them to maintain more even cooling for each yield. Because they can be custom-designed to meet each company’s specific needs, thermal pins can also be utilized to enhance molding equipment of all types. Companies can significantly boost their efficiency and productivity by streamlining the plastic mold cooling processes, and without having to completely upgrade all of their existing technologies.
