What Are Thermal Pins?

When you think of thermal management for advanced technology, the most common applications involve heat exchangers for electrical enclosures, such as control panels. Efficiently transferring electrical waste heat is vital for any technology’s continued operation, and heat exchangers are one of the most popular methods of doing so. However, thermal management encompasses much more than preventing electrical overheating. For instance, in the molding industry, specialized heat pipes known as thermal pins are used for a variety of applications, helping companies apply the same heat transfer technology to improving productivity.

High-Performance Heat Pipes for Molding

Heat pipes are the most frequently employed types of heat spreaders in thermal management, and thermal pins are one of their most advanced forms. Much like larger heat exchangers, the high temperature conductors are designed to quickly and effectively remove heat from so molds can cool down faster, allowing facilities to significantly reduce cycle times. However, rather than being affixed to an electrical enclosure, thermal pins can be crafted to fit into molding equipment of all sizes.

Because of the intense heat conductivity required, thermal pins are also isothermal and can maintain an even temperature for long periods of time. This reduces the risks of abnormal or failed molds that result from improper heat transfer. Therefore, in addition to boosting productivity, thermal pins also help molding companies save time and money by limiting or eliminating failed molds.
