Agriculture and Construction equipment are integrating more technology features and electronics, like satellite positioning systems, communications systems, on board processing for sensor arrays, system optimization electronic units and more. Sensors, electronics, and advanced operator interface displays perform best and most efficiently when kept cool.
Aavid, Thermal Division of Boyd Corporation has pioneered and refined many lightweight cooling technologies perfect for the Agriculture and Construction Industry, innovation that has been perfected with deep experience in consumer electronics, mobile electronics, and aerospace & defense.
Aavid’s encapsulated graphite heat spreaders, heat pipe assemblies, or vapor chamber assemblies are ideal passive cooling technologies that combine decades of reliable high performance in small lightweight volumes. By enabling higher performance electronics with lightweight solutions, equipment manufacturers can integrate more features without increasing maintenance requirements or weight – improving fuel effiency and machine uptime.
Our engineering team is well versed in DFM practices, especially for integrated liquid cold plates or liquid cooled chassis for high density heat loads like traction control power inverters or battery packs for electrified machinery. By leveraging Aavid’s expertise in your equipment, you can extend the range of battery powered equipment or increase the fuel efficiency of ICE or hybrid equipment.
As manufacturers push equipment to be more efficient and environmentally friendly, some are turning to electric drive trains and systems. To learn more about our expertise in the eMobility industry and our capabilities in vehicle electrification, please visit our eMobility Market page.
