Wieland Microcool Joint Venture established to take high-tech cooling applications to the next level
- The Wieland Group and Wolverine Tube have joined forces for the cooling of power electronics and semi-conductors.
- Wieland’s leadership in the Joint Venture will ensure global availability and excellent customer support for the superior technology developed by Wolverine over several years.
Effective January 1, 2019, the Wieland Group entered into a joint venture agreement with Wolverine Tube to form Wieland Microcool, a leading global technology provider for highly efficient electronics cooling applications.
The newly formed company operates facilities in the USA (Decatur, AL) and China (Shanghai). Wieland Microcool serves the rapidly rising global demand for liquid cooling solutions for power semi-conductors in a variety of applications such as eMobility, autonomous driving, renewable energy applications, and data-centers.
“With its proprietary Micro Deformation Technology Wieland Microcool will be able to offer the market ultra-compact, high performance coldplate, heatsink and baseplate designs that offer excellent heat transfer coefficients coupled with homogeneous uniform cooling and low pressure drop. Wieland Microcool is perfectly positioned to meet the demanding and further increasing cooling requirements for high power densities in power-electronics and semiconductors”, says Sy-Jenq Loong, General Manager of Wieland Microcool, LLC.
For the Wieland Group the formation of Wieland Microcool marks yet another step to expand its growing Thermal Solutions business as a provider of thermal system solutions for an energy-efficient, sustainable future.
