Skived Fin Heat Sinks
Skived fins are produced by precisely shaving a solid block of aluminum or copper to form the fins on top of the starting material. The fins are integral to the base material, so the resistance of the heat sink is not increased by an interface layer of solder or epoxy. Skived heat sinks also require minimal tooling charges, which makes them a cost effective solution. Skived heat sinks can also be customized with embedded heat pipes to add a performance boost if required.
