Why Use Aluminum Extruded Heat Sinks

by / Monday, 12 May 2014 / Published in Company Blog

Extruded Heat Sinks provide a greater range of natural convection solutions for higher power components and systems. Complex fin structures can be created by forcing raw aluminum through an extrusion die. These complex fin profiles allow greater heat dissipation through increased surface area while eliminating the cost and time associated with machining an equivalent shape from block aluminum.

Why Use Aluminum Extruded Heat Sinks?


  • More efficient than stamped heat sinks
  • Lower cost than fully machined assemblies
  • Many standard shapes and sizes assure availability
  • Easily customized for any application
  • Significant weight advantage over copper
  • MAX CLIP system eliminates mounting hardware and tools
