Thermal interface materials (TIMs) play an important role in the electronics manufacturing industry. Electronic components generate heat. Excess heat needs to be discharged or the life of the electronic device could be drastically shortened. Typically, fans and heat sinks (and heat sink fans) are used to dissipate heat in electronic devices, but as electronics mature, so do the materials used to construct them. Some of these thermal interface materialsinclude:

  • Thermal Tape

  • Thermal Pads

  • Phase-Change Materials

  • Gap-Filler Pads

  • Thermal Insulator

Many thermal interface materials require precision die cutting. Thermal tape, for example, would be cut using a process calledrotary die cutting. A spool of raw material would be fed through arotary die cutting machine and cut into its unique shape. The rotary die cutting machine would also be able to apply the backing to the thermal tape in a single pass.

Precision die cutting experts are already familiar with the manufacturers listed below. Keep an eye out for the following brands in 2016 as they promise a lot of potential. Their dedication to innovation and extensive range of products are already setting them apart. Work with your precision die cutting expert and perhaps consider what these thermal interface material manufacturers have to offer before the rest.
