Thermacore Acquires Pittsburgh Materials Technology
Among the capabilities that PMT will add to Thermacore's existing strengths is vacuum brazing of complex aluminum cold plates and heat exchangers used in electronic systems. PMT's experience with refractory-metal alloys will help Thermacore's engineers apply thermal-management solutions in high-temperature applications. In addition, PMT offers the engineering expertise to apply high- and ultrahigh-vacuum technology to material processing and testing. PMT's has recently participated in an innovative Department of Defense project that strengthens an aluminum composite alloy fivefold.
