Sheet metal fabrication is a manufacturing genre including stamping, laser cutting, and sheet bending and folding. We can turn the sheet metals into your functional products.

Tech details

Skived heat sinks are manufactured by peeling fins from a bar of solid copper or aluminum, using a sharp and accurately controlled blade tool. The tool shaves a small thickness of the material, lifts it up and bends it vertically to form the fin. The final heat sink can be machined using normal fabrication techniques, such as CNC machining. Skived heat sinks require minimal tooling cost, which makes it a cost effective solution. Skived heat sinks can also be customized with embedded heat pipes to further improve performance.


Skived copper heat sinks deliver maximum heat dissipation in applications with limited space and high levels of ventilation. They are a cost effective solution when considering the low tooling cost and the optimized fin surface area.
Skived fin heat sinks are commonly found in the following applications: Computers and electronic components
Telecommunication equipment
Industrial equipment and components Lighting lamps and household appliances industry
Automotive components
