POLYRACK Tech-Group is a leading provider of integrated packaging solutions for the electronics industry. The company offers a range of products and services, including enclosures, 19” subracks, microcomputer packaging systems (MPS), industrial PC applications, and backplanes. In 2008, POLYRACK added fluid-flow analysis capabilities to meet customer demand for flow simulation consulting, save time, and reduce prototyping costs.
POLYRACK chose SolidWorks Flow Simulation computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis software because it is integrated inside the SolidWorks design environment and provides tools for simulating heat transfer challenges associated with racked electronic systems. The company added the Electronics Cooling Module to extend its capabilities for handling heat transfer problems related to multicore chips and heat pipes. By selecting SolidWorks Flow Simulation software, POLYRACK reduced its development time from three months to two weeks, cut two prototyping cycles, generated new flow simulation consulting business, and innovated effective approaches to electronics cooling system design.
