Cooliance

Forged Pin Heat Sinks – Active and Passive

Cooliance

 

 

Cooliance is a Warwick, Rhode Island manufacturer of active and passive, forged pin heat sinks. The forge process uses high pressure to form material with grain structure allowing for superior thermal performance. Heat sinks can be formed in either aluminum or copper.

The Coolstrate heat sink is capable of cooling up to 300 watts while operating with less than 1.5% of the total lighting system’s power.

Cooliance Heat Sinks
LED Technology
  • Standard or modified solutions readily available
  • 5mm to 160mm diameter and a variety of rectangular sizes are possible
  • Coolstrate (active) heat sinks have on-board modules which can be adjusted for required performance levels

Permlight

LED Integration

Permlight Logo

Permlight is one of the oldest and most experienced LED integrators in the US.

My recent experience representing Permlight has shed a new light on how a vendor (Permlight) can positively affect an account.  No time in the past have I seen such involvement from one of my principals with one of my accounts.

Permlight Products
 

By saying Permlight will help you bring a product to market is an understatement.  They will help you design, develop and test YOUR product.  Their expertise and industry knowledge will help you avoid pitfalls and delays.  Permlight will work with all LED manufacturers but mostly Nichia. If they don’t have the driver you need to power the LED, they will recommend the compatible product.

If you have a project you’re currently working on or have one that is soon to start, contact Newquist Associates and we will help get the ball rolling.
