Transportation Thermal Solutions

ACT has the expertise and proven technical solutions to meet increasing thermal management challenges for new and emerging product designs in the transportation industries

There is a demand for lighter weight, higher power, greater fuel efficiency and more electronic gadgetry in products. ACT’s active and passive heat-dissipating and heat spreading technologies can be used to provide effective thermal management for Automotive, Rail, Shipping, and other transport industries.


Automotive Design Engineers are seeking newer, better thermal management technologies to meet these increasingly challenging requirements. ACT has broad Thermal Management experience in both Passive and Active Cooling Technologies. This can be especially useful as Automotive Design Engineers deal with thermal challenges in areas such as:

  • Battery Thermal Management – Hybrid and Plug-In Electric Vehicles
  • Power Electronics and Engine Control Thermal Management
  • IGBT and MOSFET Thermal Management
  • Waste Heat Recovery and Emissions Reduction
  • Brake and Suspension Cooling Systems
  • Seat Heating and Cooling

Electric Vehicle Battery Thermal Management

ACT’s active and passive heat dissipating and heat spreading technologies can be effectively used to maximize battery life. ACT designs and builds Liquid Cold Plates and Vapor Chambers/Heat Sink Assemblies for these applications.

ACT offers a variety of thermal solutions comprising both active and passive technologies. Passive thermal technology products and technologies we offer include:Passive Thermal Management Technologies:

ACT has numerous prior and ongoing research areas which apply to automotive thermal engineering, including

In addition ACT has expertise in both traditional and emerging active cooling systems such as:
