Thermal management is one of the most essential demands of the molding industry. The manufacturing process relies on superheating glass, plastic, metal, or ceramic so that it fits into the appropriate mold, then cooling the mold so that the material hardens. Cycle times depend on how fast and efficient the heating and cooling processes are, and overhead costs are significantly impacted by the energy used in each cycle. With Noren’s advanced thermal pins, companies can significantly increase their yields by drastically reducing cycle times and minimizing overall energy consumption.
Rapid Thermal Management
Thermal pins are unique heat pipes with exceptionally high thermal conductivity and designed specifically to fit into molding equipment of all shapes and sizes. The heat exchangers may draw heat from the material to the base of the mold, or to remote water channels, depending on the mold’s design. They are especially beneficial for cooling areas that are otherwise inaccessible to traditional water cooling units.
As heat exchangers, thermal pins draw heat away from the molded material quicker and more effectively than other heat transfer methods. This reduces cycle times and allows for faster production and greater yields. Because thermal pins are isothermal (meaning they maintain an even temperature), they can also reduce the risk of abnormal molds due to hot spots. Combined with reduced costs for energy consumption and general maintenance, thermal pins can help most companies excel at all forms of manufacturing.
