Thermal engineering sector has new event for industries


Thermal Management Expo, the only free-to-attend exhibition and conference dedicated to the thermal management sector, will be August 30-31 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Co-located with Ceramics Expo, (now in its seventh year, and bringing together engineering professionals from across the supply chain) Thermal Management Expo will showcase the latest systems, materials, and technologies addressing thermal management challenges within the automotive, aerospace & defense, energy storage, power electronics, telecoms, and medical sectors.

Some of the brands showcasing their solutions include ThermAvant, Morgan Advanced Materials, Colder Products Company, CAVU Group, and MG Chemicals.

Alongside the exhibition will run a free-to-attend conference, with sessions delivered by technical experts from Collins Aerospace, Meta (Facebook), Lord Parker, ThermAvant Technologies, 3M, and many more leading voices from the sector. Sessions will offer insights into thermal management systems and design, covering topics including thermal interface materials, innovations in battery cooling, and electronic thermal management.

Driven by advancements across new and emerging technologies — such as the increased demand for EV battery cooling and the miniaturization of electronics within 5G and telecoms — the global thermal management market is projected to grow by a CAGR of 8.2 percent to be worth USD 12.8 billion by 2025.

Exhibition manager Ipek Saltik said, “Thermal management plays a critical role in any application that generates energy, from jet turbines, engines, motors, actuators, inverters, batteries, and fuel cells. Our aim is to provide a unique platform for the manufacturers, suppliers, and end-users to interact about the materials, solutions and technologies for their thermal management challenges in various industries – all under one roof.”

“Like the proverbial elephant in the room, so often while the engineering community is cognizant of the critical importance of thermal management in system performance and efficiency we treat it as a secondary issue to be addressed after other design considerations have been finalized,” said Richard Clark, global lead, energy storage at Morgan Advanced Materials. “Here at last is a focused forum where the latest technologies and strategies for tackling thermal management will be demonstrated, presented and discussed.”

“We believe this event will help us to achieve our stated goal of helping to establish Ohio and the region as North America’s hub for fuel cell technologies, and that’s why we’re delighted to have signed up as official event partners,” said Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition executive director Pat Valente. “A dedicated forum to network and share ideas and development was badly needed, and we look forward to participating in the inaugural edition of Thermal Management Expo in August 2022 and meeting thousands of peers and industry professionals.”
