Aavid, Thermal Division of Boyd Corporation maintains the world's largest portfolio of extruded heat sink profiles with over 5,000 tooled shapes.

For applications that require more customization, we utilize our broad extrusion profile library to develop custom and semi-custom air cooled solutions. Aavid extruded heat sink profiles range from simple flat back fin structures to complex geometries for optimized cooling. Our Aluminum Extrusions utilize alloys 6063 and 6061 for their high thermal conductivity.

If a standard profile extrusion doesn’t meet your application requirements, our engineering team has spent decades designing new extrusions, balancing manufacturability with heat sink function. Contact our engineering team if you have a project that you think would benefit from a custom extruded heat sink.

For rapid thermal modeling and comparison of multiple heat sink constructions please try Aavid Genie our heat sink design tool.
