  • Can you tap heatsinks?

    I have some extruded heatsinks, to which I would like to screw-mount some transistors. Is your equipment capable of tapping one of these?

    Hello Douglas,


    Thank you for contacting us regarding your inquiry.


    We are absolutely able to tap those heatsinks.


    You need only to make a drawing in our software with the exterior dimensions of the heatsink and marked to be milled from customer provided material that has the desired tapped holes.


    Also be sure to remember to make the origin on the heatsink to ensure accuracy.


    As always, let us know if you have any additional questions or concerns.


    Kindest Regards,

    Paul Birkeland
