Krayden partnered with a company specializing in EV. The customer was looking for a non-silicone thermal grease or putty to attach the IGBT’s in the on-board charging unit to ceramics and then attach those ceramics to the outer casing, which is an aluminum heat sink, to transfer the extreme heat out of the unit.
|What is the application?||The customer was looking for a non-silicone thermal grease or putty to attach the IGBT’s in the on-board charging unit to ceramics and then attach those ceramics to the outer casing, which is an aluminum heat sink, to transfer the extreme heat out of the unit.|
|What issues was the end-user having?||They needed a material with a high thermal conductivity that was not electrially conductive and non-silicone that had little to no bleed out|
|What material was used to solve the issue?||K-Therm KT-TY-SFP-45.|
|Why did this material work better than other materials?||It has better thermal conductivity than its competing material, but works fairly similarly. It has a slightly higher thermal conductivity with lower cost.|
|Was this material lower cost than other materials?||Yes|
|Did this material improve the process?||Yes, not only did it work as good or better than required, I helped to optimize their assembly process and our contact supplying this material also supplies the dispense equipment optimized for this material. Once we spec’d in material, we also spec’d the equipment in the production line to ensure we kept the business, but also helping the customer to optimize their processes and quickly getting to a solution. Originally they were looking towards screen printing, but after showing the precision of the dispense equipment with no waste and beating their required run time, they had no reason to look at screen printing any longer.|
|What industry/market was this material used in?||EV|
