Aavid Thermacore Facilities & Equipment:
The Capabilities for Complete Solutions

Aavid Thermacore's research, engineering, test and production facilities, anchored by our dedicated Technology Center, have helped us produce thermal solutions for a spectrum of applications — and also helped us extend the capabilities of thermal technology. Aavid Thermacore gives you more complete engineering and manufacturing services than any other global thermal company.

Dedicated thermal research testing and engineering facilities, featuring the capabilities of our dedicated Technology Center, help us partner with your engineering team. We can take the design constraints (thermal, mechanical, environmental, etc.) of your unique application and develop a thermal solution concept, from prototype development and validation to qualification, pre-production and mass production.
