Aluminum Skived fin HeatSinks

Skived Fin heatsinks can be an alternative to extruded heat sinks when looking for a fin density which can’t be achieved by extrusion technology. Skived heat sinks can be manufactured from either copper or aluminum and usually have 0.5 (0.020”) thick fins.

Product Introduction

Skived fins are achieved by a knife tool that literally shaves fins up from an extruded aluminum or copper base. This process of slicing and then standing the fins up one at a time can create an extremely high fin-to-gap aspect ratio. The top of the fins are then cut to maintain a uniform height.  This increased surface area drastically improves the thermal performance in forced airflow environments.

Advantage of Skived Fin HeatSinks:
· High aspect ratio
· Thin fin
· Low tooling cost
· Easy and inexpensive to prototype
· Ideal thermal connectivity with the heat sink base
· Unidirectional flow
· Single piece construction

Skived fin heatsinks are commonly found in the following applications:
Computers and electronic components
Telecommunication equipment
Industrial equipment and components
Lighting lamps and household appliances industry
Automotive components
