Why liquid cooling?


For cooling electronics and critical applications, liquid cooling is used to achieve maximum heat dissipation and heat transfer. In most cases, liquid cooling is necessary to reliably dissipate heat from very temperature sensitive applications. In addition to thermal performance, an added benefit of liquid cooling is noise reduction, operating near inaudible levels.


Where is liquid cooling used?


Liquid cooling is used in situations where cooling is critical, for instance in high density batteries - power electronics - semiconductors - electric motors - converters - inverters - lasers - LEDs - GPUs


Generative liquid cooling


Liquid cooled cold plates designed using generative technology usher in additional layers of performance and adaptability. Each design is unique, precisely optimized to your heat source(s), manufacturing method, material, and dimensions, resulting in hot spot elimination. Freeing the flow from the conventional pipe like s-shaped structure and channeling it through islands instead greatly reduces the pressure drop as well as increases flow uniformity. This results in high temperature uniformity and heat transfer.

Generative design offers a state of the art approach to liquid cooling design, providing usable, manufacture ready results in addition to new, valuable design insight.
  • High temperature uniformity


    The small channels have a high contact area with the liquid, improving the convective cooling.


    High heat transfer


    The small structures and pins have a high contact area with the liquid, resulting in very high heat transfer.

    High thermal mixing


    The small pockets ensure that the thermal boundary layer is interrupted and subsequently re-initiated.



    Effective flow


    The large channel carries cold liquid through to the smaller channels, which then regulate flow through a bottleneck effect to ensure even distribution.

Lower thermal resistance and pressure drop, higher efficiency gains


Compared to an s-shaped design, our generative design results in higher efficiency gains, lower thermal resistance, and lower pressure drop.
