When companies first began using heat exchangers, their primary purpose was to transfer electrical waste heat and prevent electrical enclosures from overheating. Heat exchangers are able to do this more rapidly than traditional solutions can chill the heat, making them a more efficient and productive way to cool electrical equipment. However, as technology has evolved, so have their thermal management systems, and the same technologies that make heat exchangers possible have also become staples in several other thermal management processes. For example, for modern molding companies, thermal pins are able to translate the same heat transfer principles into machine tool cooling.
A higher value in efficient thermal management
When companies in any industry are able to streamline their electrical thermal management processes, the benefits are considerable. Lower energy costs, reduced maintenance needs, greener electrical cooling, and more have all become popular advantages of heat exchangers. The value that improved electrical cooling brings has made heat exchangers valuable for most companies, but that’s especially true in the molding industry. In addition to preventing electrical overheating, thermal management for molding also means rapidly removing heat from molds during the production process. The faster, more efficiently, and more reliably companies can achieve this process, the more productive and profitable they can be.
How thermal pins transform machine tool cooling
Thermal pins are advanced, custom-designed heat exchangers that are crafted to fit onto a wide variety of modern molding equipment. The principles of heat exchangers are to transfer heat in the most efficient way possible, utilizing a minimal amount of energy and fitting into tight spaces. For thermal pins, these principles are applied to removing heat from superheated molds with the same level of efficiency. Thermal pins don’t rely on large amounts of energy, and they’re isothermal to allow for even, symmetrical heat removal from the mold every time. They allow companies to reduce their cycle times and improve the quality of their yields while minimizing their overall operating costs.
A few important benefits of using thermal pins
The fact that thermal pins can more reliably and efficiently remove heat from molds is an important benefit unto itself. The improved quality and speed of their molds offers a significant boost to productivity. However, the eco-friendly way in which they transfer heat offers several other important benefits. For example, companies can reduce their reliance on energy and the costs associated with it, as well as their overall environmental footprints.
