Parker Unveils Next Generation of High Performing Thermal Gap Filler Pads

MC Parker Unveils Next Gen High Precision Thermal Gap Pad 1 400

January 19, 2022

 

The Chomerics division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, a leader in motion and control technologies, has announced the launch of THERM-A-GAP™ PAD 30 and THERM-A-GAP™ PAD 60, the next-generation of thermally conductive gap filler pads from Parker Chomerics. 

With performance of 3.2 W/m-K thermal conductivity, THERM-A-GAP PAD 30 reliably conforms to rough surface irregularities and air gaps on heat-generating components. For higher performance applications, THERM-A-GAP PAD 60 offers the enticing combination of both excellent thermal conductivity at 6.0 W/m-K, while being more than 40% softer than current like-performance thermal gap pads from Parker Chomerics.

“Thermal gap filler pads continue to be designed and used in greater capacities for both price-sensitive markets, as well as those requiring high-performance materials,” said Brian Mahoney, thermal business unit manager, Chomerics Division. “We’re thrilled to expand our already impressive family of thermal gap filler pads with these next-generation offerings.”

Parker’s new thermal materials are manufactured globally and available in standard sheet sizes and thicknesses. They can easily be die-cut to custom dimensions and have various carrier and adhesive options for ease of use.

Features and benefits:

  • 0 W/m-K Thermal Conductivity
  • Ultra-Soft 31 Shore 00
  • Low NASA Outgassing
  • 40% Softer Than Previous Gap Pads
  • Precise pick-and-place with ease
  • Excellent elasticity
  • Bounces back after compression
  • THERM-A-GAP PAD 60 offers excellent thermal properties and high conformability at low clamping forces. Thermal gap filler pads can “blanket” multiple components with minimal stress all while reducing “hot spots” on a PCB.
  • Easily released from liner for effective positioning by automated robotics.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
