Lancaster, PA, December 10, 2018 –  Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) announced today that they have  entered into a long term supplier agreement with German-based INHECO Industrial Heating & Cooling GmbH.  In the two-year agreement, ACT will provide INHECO with cutting-edge Vapor Chamber Assemblies.  The vapor chambers are part of INHECO’s Thermal Cycler product line used for Biomedical Research and Diagnostics.  ACT will assemble these advanced vapor chambers under INHECO’s VCM® Technology brand and intellectual property.  The thermal cyclers take benefit from the ultrafast heat spreading capability of vapor chambers, which – through highly efficient, passive two phase heat transfer – provides the unit with the precise temperature uniformity required for these high-end biomedical applications.

ACT and INHECO have been closely working together for several years, developing and maturing this crucial technology. Through that long collaboration, “ACT consistently demonstrated strong technical expertise and high-quality manufacturing capability,” according to INHECO CEO Guenter Tenzler.  “Now that we have progressed to launching the products and the technology commercially, it’s only natural to continue down the path that has brought us so much success to date.  We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial collaboration,” Mr. Tenzler noted.

ACT’s Scott Garner, Vice President Industrial Products, added, “Our joint development with INHECO has further demonstrated the benefits of using vapor chambers for heat spreading and transfer. We are excited to continue to work with INHECO and to see this technology advance into a gold standard for thermocycling applications.”


ACT specializes in advanced thermal technology development and custom thermal product manufacturing. ACT designs and manufactures PCM heat sinks, cold plates, HiK™ plates, heat pipes, custom thermal, fluid, and mechanical systems, and pumped liquid and two-phase loops for customers in diverse markets including Aerospace, Electronics, Temperature Calibration, Medical Device, and Energy Recovery Systems.

ACT’s team consists of personnel with established track records in technology development, commercialization and production. Many of them were involved in the pioneering work on heat pipes, loop heat pipes and other single and two-phase heat transfer devices. They are the inventors/co-inventors on numerous U.S. and international patents and the authors/co-authors of hundreds of scientific publications.

ACT’s Facility measures more than 60,000 square feet, including office, laboratory and manufacturing spaces. With ISO9001 and AS9100 certified quality system in place, the facility has designed and manufactured high quality, cost effective, thermal management solutions for dozens of mission critical satellites, and numerous military and commercial applications. ACT’s diverse R&D efforts are developing thermal solutions for tomorrow’s emerging technologies.
