Skived Fin

Skived Fin Heatsinks Thermal Solutions

Skived Fin, heat sinks are designed to maximize the surface area in contact with the coolant fluid. Aluminum and copper alloys are the most common heat sink material. This is because aluminum costs less than copper. However, copper is used where higher levels of thermal conductivity are needed.

Unlike bonded or brazed heat sinks, the machining process for skived fin heatsinks uses cutting tools and a controlled slicing technique to manufacture heatsinks from a solid block of aluminum or copper. Therefore, this manufacturing process offers reduced thermal resistance since there is no joint between the base and fins. The skiving process enables high fin density and thin fin heatsink geometries for optimal thermal performance. Also, this process can create Skived Fin, heatsinks with thinner blades than are possible with extruded heatsinks. However, due to this type of heatsink’s thin fins and high aspect ratio, greater care must be taken when handling them.


  • High aspect ratio
  • Thin fin
  • Low tooling cost
  • Easy and inexpensive to prototype
  • Ideal thermal connectivity with the heat sink base
  • Unidirectional flow
  • Single piece construction
