Metal Fabrication Technologies
Boyd Corporation has a longstanding history in innovative metal science solutions which has been augmented recently by the 2017 acquisition of Aavid Thermalloy. The acquisition of Aavid, the most recognized thermal solutions provider in the world, also included other leading global thermal brands like Thermacore Inc., Niagara Thermal Products, and Allcast. Thermacore Inc. played a pivotal role in the development and commercialization of two phase cooling technologies such as heat pipes as well as metal and material sciences for advanced cooling systems. Niagara Thermal Products serviced the aerospace and defense markets and was best known for their expertise with heat exchangers. While Allcast had a long history in industrial-focused die casting, including but not limited to complex thermal solutions. These pioneering histories rich in thermal innovation and material science continue today as a core tenet of the thermal and metal science solutions portfolios of Aavid, Thermal Division of Boyd. Combine that with Boyd Corporation’s own knowledge and expertise and you have a leader at the forefront of Metal Sciences with unsurpassed capabilities and capacity.
Boyd Corporation offers a vast metallurgic knowledge combined with diverse metalworking capabilities that enable the design and manufacture of superior thermal management and general industrial components and assemblies. We produce streamlined standard options as well as custom engineered solutions for prototype or production.
Our processes range from converting small thermal interface materials to the machining and brazing of large complex enclosures and everything in between. Thermal engineers utilize this range of manufacturing options to ensure that thermal solution and system designs feature the most appropriate technologies and construction choices.
Global Engineering Support
Boyd’s approach to custom metal solution design begins with working to understand our customers’ performance needs, challenges, dimensional constraints, and other requirements and aligning these needs with manufacturable and scalable solutions. Boyd hosts a global team of over 300 engineers that work closely with our customers to design optimized solutions and streamline production methods. Our engineers span a diverse range of fields including thermal, electrical, mechanical, manufacturing, and chemical engineering.
Our global engineering teams assist customers through the full product lifecycle from prototype to volume production to end of life management or retrofit utilizing a range of technologies and solutions. This wide variety of capabilities allows our engineers to better innovate and design creative, out-of-the-box solutions that employ multiple technologies for smaller, more powerful products.
