The company's R & D system team (including project management/product design/process development/New Technology pre-research) has more than 250 engineers and experts. They can handle the development of more than 30 air conditioning and cooling modules projects at the same time : with heat exchangers , electronic components , air conditioning units (HVAC) / cooling modules inclunding design, integration and validation (using internal capabilities and test means).
The simulation team, using advanced CFD tools, can carry out performance and product reliability simulations for Heat Exchangers, air conditioning units and front end cooling systems at the very early design phase. Mind has the know how and the test means to develop simulate and validate : full thermal systems including, air conditioning units and cooling modules, flow and temperature fields, pressure drops, NVH behavior and FEA.
Structural design and flow simulation of HVAC units and front end cooling modules. Mature air conditioning control algorithms and calibrations to ensure the best thermal comfort in the vehicle cabin. Electronic product development capabilities including multi-platform hardware design, modular software design/testing, CAN module integration and calibration capabilities. Mind Thermal System has many patents granted patents.
Mind Thermal System testing facilities are ISO17025 certified. Two full systems test benches are available in Baoding. They are used for system (A/C, Heat pump and battery cooling) and heat exchangers development and performance tests. Mind Thermal system also uses: Heat exchangers vibration test chambers with both temperature and humidity control, Heat exchangers durability test benches for vibration, pressure and temperature cycling, with a range from -40 to 150℃. Heat exchangers’ endurance tests facilities are dedicated to reliability and durability validations. High precision machine (to control dimensions with an accuracy of 2.5μm), non-contact thermal imager, noise and vibration analysis test equipments, are used to monitor the production of all our systems and components.
