  • Reduced material in extrusion direction
  • Reduced processing time for drilling by featuring screwing channel in and rectangular to the extrusion direction
  • Reduced processing time and assembly time by featuring PCB board or other insertion grooves in extrusion direction
  • Reduced processing time and assembly time by featuring clip grooves in extrusion direction
  • Improved thermal performance by increasing the heat sink surface for free or forced convection
  • Improved thermal performance by incorporating bases to cover a certain distance from component to heat sink (instead of gap pads for example)
  • Fusion of heat sink and casing design
  • Low one-time tooling costs for extrusion profiles compared to die cast tooling
  • Minimum order quantities start as low as 500kg (lower volumes possible for surcharge)
  • Logistical solutions: Alutronic offers stockpiling in connection with frame orders
  • Cost reduction by adding surface treatment, such as anodization, chromating, coatings already to the 6m profile bar instead of to each processed heat sink
  • Cost reduction by reducing material weight, processing and assembly time
  • Short lead times for tooling, sampling, prototyping and serial production
