Folded-fin assemblies from Aavid Thermalloy offer maximum cooling surface in minimum volume. Developed for aerospace and military markets, folded-fin heat sinks have found a strong commercial niche. Available in a wide variety of styles, materials and fin densities, folded fins can be used in forced convention and natural convention cooled systems.
Virtually all parts are customized, with very few standard parts available.
