Thermal Interface Materials

Thermal Interface Materials (TIMs) are often curable higher-viscosity fluids designed to conduct heat from one object to another. Typically, they are sandwiched between a heat-generating surface and the surface of a heat sink. TIMs are often dispensed in patterns, which can be in the shape of a cross, star, or serpentine. Camalot® precision dispensing and auger pump technology ensure controlled, consistent dispensing of dots, lines, and patterns as required. Camalot dispensers are ideal for filling intricate air voids and gaps, a key use of TIMs in thermal management for semiconductor and board level applications. With TIMs, the goal is to form an evenly distributed layer of thermally-conductive material between surfaces.
