Abstract:

Manufacturing processes to fabricate heat pipes for circuit cards were evaluated. These included shell and wick fabrication, shell and wick joining, and vacuumfill and testing. Cost effective processes were selected to meet production requirements. A production facility was designed based on cost trade-offs. The results of the evaluation, selection of recommended manufacturing methods and the design of the production facility are presented. Author
