Our contribution to a reliable thermal management - metal core PCBs made by VARIOPRINT
VARIOPRINT offers a wide range of different metal core technologies and solution concepts for improved heat dissipation.
Using full-surface metal cores made of copper, brass or aluminium, as well as partially incorporated inlays (coins), enables a significantly higher amount of heat to be dissipated through the heatsink. High-precision depth milling exposes the metal body and, in conjunction with edge metallisation, creates a much larger cooling surface. Optimised thermal management leads to overall cost reduction and higher system reliability.
Our state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment, including drilling and milling machines especially designed to work in conjunction with camera metrics, ensures innovative and high quality products.
