Why use Micro Deformation Technology for Liquid Cooling?
MicroCool® Micro Deformation Technology (MDT) is a low-cost, non-subtractive manufacturing method for creating fin and pin surfaces for use in heat transfer applications. This patented process mechanically and plastically deforms the work piece to form finite and repeatable micro-channels.
How does this benefit you?
Liquid cooling of cold plates and base plates appears to be the near-term solution for the current cooling demand of the power electronics market. Although well-known manufacturing methods can produce adequate cold plates and base plates for liquid cooling, new manufacturing processes and associated new geometries could significantly improve the hydrodynamic and thermal performances of current solutions. A numerical and experimental investigation has been carried out in order to evaluate the impact on the thermal performances of new pin and fin geometries applied to liquid cooling of power electronics. It is concluded that new geometries can provide a significant improvement on the thermal performances.
That’s not all!
