YS Tech USA and CTfanman discuss Thermal Solutions
As you guys recall from last time, we did a brief tour of the YS Tech USA Thermal Solutions factory. This time, we will discuss that factory’s Design capabilities – something alluded to last time.
As you recall the Thermal Solutions Division of YS Tech USA focuses on heat sink fabrication and cooler manufacturing. Their catalog is not huge because they prefer to work with customers and assist in providing a complete Thermal Solution, not a catalog of components. As has probably already occurred to you sharp sales people; with YS having access to all types of fans, heat sinks [of various technologies] and the capability of integrating the components in-house, is a powerful sales tool which can be offered to your customers as a turnkey solution!
But, it may have also occurred to you guys that some of your customers are running very lean on personnel and although they have need for a Thermal Solution, they don’t have the Thermal Engineering expertise or experience to support the requirements. Not to mention the Thermal Design software needed these days to shorten the development cycle. Not to worry, YS Tech USA has you covered here too!
Calling upon the in-house Design expertise of the Thermal solutions Div., we offer Design and Development services which in the end are capable of providing testable prototypes to your customer. All in a matter of weeks. This is made possible because of the factories investment in CAD and state-of-the-art Thermal Design software [CFD].
The factory will take your customers 3D rendering of their system and design a Solution best fitting the
circumstances. Once the CAD design is completed and approved by your customer, the factory then conducts Thermal analysis of the design.
If the design proves itself in simulation and the customer is satisfied to this point, then the factory will manufacture a mockup or prototype for further testing.
The Mockup is thoroughly tested at the factory to confirm the design
and then made available to your customer for final testing [if needed] and approval.
If this sounds like a process some of your customer would be interested in, you may also mention the Thermal analysis software used is: FloTHERM® 9.1 and Nika EFD.Pro 8.
FloTHERM® is powerful 3D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software that predicts airflow and heat transfer in and around electronic equipment. And Nika EFD.Pro 8 is a fully integrated fluid flow and heat transfer simulation product for Pro/ENGINEER. I realize the software definitions will probably make your eyes glaze over, but just ask your customer to run over to the YS Blog page and read it for themselves. Especially the Engineers!
Lastly, if any of your Engineers have an immediate chassis design project and could use some background, give them this link [ http://tinyurl.com/9wjmz9e ], it will get them started off in the right direction.
