Pipes are critical to the infrastructure of modern society. While there are many approaches to pipe manufacturing, Tokyo-based Sakae Casting is the only company to have developed pipe-casting technology that opens up new possibilities. The extraordinary precision of the casting enables a minimum clearance of 0.5mm, with a space between both parts of just 1mm, a plate thickness of 8mm, and a pipe diameter of 6m. Sakae has used this technology in creating their “water-cooled thin-type cooling plate (cold plate),” a mainstay product that has been adopted by the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturers, and their high technical ability is already attracting attention from around the world. The company is also rapidly […]
