Noren Thermal has built and maintained a reputation of excellence over the last 40 years when it comes to designing, manufacturing, and improving thermal management solutions. Today, that reputation continues and has expanded thanks to the success of Noren’s wide range of advanced electrical cooling solutions. Much of that success relies on our expertise in heat exchanger design and our in-house manufacturing capabilities, which allow us to conduct comprehensive feasibility studies of every design. A feasibility study can tell you everything you need to know about how your heat exchangers will fit so appropriate adjustments can be made before the final product is created.
The Stages of a Feasibility Study
Given the unique specifications of every application and the diverse range of heat exchanger designs, feasibility studies differ according to each product. However, the basic stages always remain the same to maintain consistent standards of quality:
The first stage to a feasibility study involves the initial concept and product designs, including detailed fabrication and assembly drawings. Noren utilizes advanced 3D imaging, such as computer-assisted design (CAD) technology, to create detailed and precise product models. This stage also includes the specific mechanical layout and thermal performance criteria.
Tool and Fixture Design/Fabrication:
After the concept and initial product designs are complete, the next stage is to design and fabricate the appropriate production tooling and fixtures. Requirements are defined and the tooling and fixtures are tested accordingly to ensure optimal quality.
Finally, Noren’s experts will utilize computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology to produce physically accurate prototypes per the product’s mechanical requirements. The prototype will allow Noren to test the product’s physical dimensions within the scope of the application to eliminate the need for redesigns after the final product is manufactured.
Save Time and Money with an Expert Feasibility Study
No matter how advanced technology becomes, some principles will never change, such as the need to measure twice so you only have to build once.
