TIM Print is a novel method to apply Laird Performance Materials’ thermal management die cut pads while reducing total cost of ownership. It offers a more robust, reproducible and reliable application process as compared to traditional ‘peel and stick’ and dispensing methods.
TIM Print uses an automated (or semi-automated) press and die to transfer thermal pad materials from a carrier liner to a substrate (e.g., heat sink, lid, BLS) This method scales well from individual parts to fully automated, roll to roll processing with integrated substrate feed and in-line inspection.
In addition to reducing costs and improving speeds, TIM Print can be used to apply materials that are traditionally difficult to hand apply, thereby reducing scrap and enabling the use of materials with improved properties.
TIM Print reduces Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by:
TIM Print also enables the supply and application of ultra-thin, free standing pads (as thin as 75 microns).
