Manufacturing Process

The heat sink was designed with a unique strategy to utilize the extrusion manufacturing process because of its cost-effectiveness. The base, which acted as the heat sink, was extruded from aluminum, a highly efficient heat conductor, and then post-processed by cutting and machining. The aluminum heat sink effectively dissipated heat from critical areas.

Efficient Heat Dissipation

One of the major design criteria was to create an internal heat sink system that would dissipate the generated heat from internal electronics.
