A. From Concept to Prototyping
Product concepts are based on our extensive experience and thorough understanding of all the issues involved in designing reliable custom thermoelectric products, whether modules or systems. State-of-the-art tools are used to move along the path from concept to preliminary design to final design and prototype:
- Solidworks 3-D® for creating a detailed mechanical model
- Ansys® for thermal and mechanical stress analysis of the 3-D model
- Stereolithography (selective sintering of plastic materials) for rapid prototyping of system components
Thermal imaging for measuring actual temperature differences across the device and other system components, this infrared imaging system is used for both diagnostic and product acceptance purposes.
