Etched micro-channels for heat exchanger

Today's requirements for efficient and space-saving heat dissipation pose great challenges for many development engineers. The miniaturization of many components in electrical and micro-system technology creates so-called heat hotspots, which require optimal heat dissipation in order to ensure a long service life.
With our high precision 2D and 3D photo-chemical etching technology, we are able to support your requirements due to our expertise and many years of experience. This means that we can create micro-channels with a defined width and depth in the heat exchanger for the heat-dissipating media of your choice in the smallest of areas. There are almost no limits to the design of your channels. Our competitively priced photo-optical tools produce high-quality workpieces with highly repeatable accuracy.
The individual microchannel plates can be connected — for example by diffusion welding — to a variety of 3D geometries. For this we have an experienced network of partners, which gives you the choice of purchasing individual micro-channel plates or monolithic micro-channel heat exchanger blocks.
Because our expert team have more than 30 years of experience in photo-chemical etching, your individual micro-channel heat exchanger will be created in line with all future heat management challenges.

Advantages at a glance

  • Highest repeatable accuracy from the first to the last part
  • Complex and precise structures can be realized
  • Very low tool costs - iteration loops through design changes made easy
  • Delivery of parts on the roll or as individual parts

Our standards are industry leading

We operate in a world characterized by the tightest tolerances (hundredths of a millimeter), the finest structures, the thinnest metals, and the most complex geometries. We etch customized metal components to the tightest tolerances in large-scale industrial production volumes.

Our mission is to reach the highest customer satisfaction through excellent quality. In order to guarantee this to our customers, our processes are constantly monitored and further developed through strict quality controls. We are certified according to ISO 9001, IATF 16949, and ISO 14001.
