Wieland Microcool Joint Venture established to take high-tech cooling applications to the next level

The Wieland Group and Wolverine Tube have joined forces for the cooling of power electronics and semi-conductors.

Wieland’s leadership in the Joint Venture will ensure global availability and excellent customer support for the superior technology developed by Wolverine over several years.

Effective January 1, 2019, the Wieland Group entered into a joint venture agreement with Wolverine Tube to form Wieland Microcool, a leading global technology provider for highly efficient electronics cooling applications.

The newly formed company operates facilities in the USA (Decatur, AL) and China (Shanghai). Wieland Microcool serves the rapidly rising global demand for liquid cooling solutions for power semi-conductors in a variety of applications such as eMobility, autonomous driving, renewable energy applications, and data-centers.

“With its proprietary Micro Deformation Technology Wieland Microcool will be able to offer the market ultra-compact, high performance coldplate, heatsink and baseplate designs that offer excellent heat transfer coefficients coupled with homogeneous uniform cooling and low pressure drop. Wieland Microcool is perfectly positioned to meet the demanding and further increasing cooling requirements for high power densities in power-electronics and semiconductors”, says Sy-Jenq Loong, General Manager of Wieland Microcool, LLC.

For the Wieland Group the formation of Wieland Microcool marks yet another step to expand its growing Thermal Solutions business as a provider of thermal system solutions for an energy-efficient, sustainable future.

Still using old cold plate technology? Friction Stir Welding is better

Why Friction Stir Welding is Better

Friction Stir Welding (FSW) is a solid-state joining process, meaning frictional heat is generated between the wear-resistant welding tool and the material of the workpieces. Joining the workpieces together while staying below the melting point. This creates a leak-proof seal that is stronger and more reliable than any other cold plate joining method.

Microcool uses the best technology

MicroCool has become the expert in FSW high conductivity 1100 series aluminum MDT pin plates into all types of machined, extruded and cast aluminum alloys.

How to use the MicroCool Tool

MicroCool Tool is a new, user-friendly, hands-on online simulation tool for cold plates and cooling elements developed for a diverse range of electronic cooling applications including CPU configurations, racks, servers, GPU graphics chips, high-output LEDs, power modules, IGBTs, power semiconductors, and FETs.

ONLINE SIMULATION

This online software can help you quickly determine which type of MDT fin or pin geometry will best suit your performance needs. With just a few inputs, the correlation-based software:

  • Provides thermal resistance, cold plate and fluid temperatures, as well as pressure drop performance
    Evaluates straight fins, in-line pin fins, and staggered pin fin geometries
  • Handles single-phase coolants (best methods including entrance effects)
  • Determines once-through and split flow (for pressure drop designs)
  • Generates complete graphical simulations (including 3D PDF output with graphs and incremental calculation output of the thermal views) and set of input/output results
