Vette's heat pipes

Vette Corp. has expanded its Asian manufacturing operations with the addition of heat pipe production and integrated assembly capabilities for computer, networking and telecommunications applications.

Heat pipes are used to absorb heat generated by chipsets and to conduct heat away from hot spots such as notebook computer CPUs and graphics drivers to be dissipated by heat sinks, heat exchangers, small cooling fans and other cooling methods away from heat-sensitive components. Vette's heat pipes are constructed of compact copper tubes containing a small amount of a fluid such as water or alcohol under vacuum conditions. Available in custom configurations, the heat pipes are available in a variety of shapes and sizes to meet specific heat dissipation requirements and applications.

"Many applications require our proprietary assembly processes to combine several individual components into one optimized thermal solution with a heat pipe as the main thermal conduit. This is especially critical to our customers' thermal solutions for mobile applications, since the cooling problem is very challenging and there is little margin for error," said George Dannecker, president and CEO of Vette, in a statement.

Pricing starts as low as $2 for simple assemblies with lead times as short as two weeks.
