Tool for assembling heatsink clips

8 April 2015 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

In order to fix electronic components onto its range of heatsinks, Alutronic supplies a selection of assembly clips which are particularly advantageous when installation area is cramped.

Other benefits are the shorter assembly time in comparison to assembly by screws, and the assurance of steady, central pressure of the semiconductor onto the cooling surface.

The design of these clips guarantees optimum heat transfer by limiting local temperature differences experienced by the semiconductor, and mitigates the risk of false assembly by over-tightening of the screws. In order to simplify and ensure perfect mounting, the company is now also offering a tool specially designed for the purpose.

The tool is suited for all Alutronic assembly clips of the spring steel MC725, MC726, MC773 and MC797 types. It fits into the hand exactly like a screwdriver and uses a clever design that requires very little force, while also reducing the possibility of slipping off the clip during application.
