ACT offers a complete range of thermal engineering services, everything from initial concept generation, product design to high volume production of a fully integrated thermal management system, and everything in-between. We’re committed to serving our customers at any point in the design cycle, and only providing the services they truly need!
Team & Value Add
ACT’s product development team is made up of talented, diverse, customer-focused, and innovative individuals who are ready to turn your concepts into reality. They work as an extension of your team and bring expertise on thermal design and manufacturability. This group embodies ACT’s core value of innovation, teamwork, and customer care as engineers and technicians work together with the customer to create custom-engineered thermal solutions and systems. Every project is different, and this group can provide you a bespoke solution for your specific application.
System Level Design and Analysis
Designing for your application as a system gives both teams a competitive edge; understanding the way each component or subsystem interacts allows us to design a more cost-effective solution. Experts in their field: ACT’s technical team has experts in diverse fields, such as mechanical, electrical, chemical, aerospace, nuclear, materials, manufacturing, and physics. Many of our engineers hold advanced degrees in these fields and several are internationally-recognized experts. Our team uses this expertise to collaborate and create unique solutions for some of the world’s most challenging problems.
Prototyping and Testing
Our in-house manufacturing spans across two facilities, and we offer custom thermal management system and component prototyping. We offer high quality, fast turnaround on thermal components as well as full solutions; this includes integration with Thermoelectric coolers, power electronics laser devices, and more. Along with passive thermal solutions such as heat pipes and phase change materials, ACT builds actively pumped single- and two-phase systems.
Using our extensive product development and manufacturing experience, we offer feasibility studies to generate and evaluate potential thermal management solutions from many important aspects including: cost (simplicity), performance, manufacturability and reliability. We can help you save time and avoid costly delays at the end of your project by identifying the correct thermal solution upfront.
ACT’s thermal engineering experts have helped guide clients in the military, telecommunications, medical, manufacturing, and aerospace industries to a variety of innovative and cost-effective thermal solutions.
- Thermal Systems
- Experience in designing thermal management systems for the most extreme environments the galaxy has to offer. ACT can evaluate active or passive solutions for satellites, landers, rovers, and more.
- Creating a robust and lightweight structure to withstand launch and space environments while considering temperature gradients across the entire structure.
- Offering expert guidance and strategic insights to navigate the complexities of modern space exploration. With a deep understanding of advanced technologies and industry trends, ACT assists clients in determining how to manage waste heat and the types of thermal management systems that will be most beneficial to achieve exceptional results. This affords a flexible option to solicit expert opinions while you are still in the “trade space” in your design.
