Asetek, a company producing gaming hardware for immersive gaming experiences and the creator of the all-in-one (AIO) liquid cooler, has entered a partnership with Fabric8labs, a metal 3D printing innovator, to produce the AI-Optimized Cold Plate. This exclusive partnership with Fabric8Labs covers the commercial and consumer desktop markets and introduces a revolutionary advancement in liquid cooling technology. Leveraging Fabric8Labs’ Electrochemical Additive Manufacturing (ECAM) technology, Asetek has developed a cold plate design that is expected to redefine industry leading performance.

The partnership embodies a shared commitment to innovation that drives superior performance, high quality, and lasting reliability. The AI-Optimized Cold Plate demonstrates a significant improvement over previous generations.

Fabric8Labs’ unique 3D printing technology plays a pivotal role in this innovation. The company’s ECAM method allows for the creation of complex, high-resolution structures that significantly improve thermal capabilities through enhanced fluid dynamics. Also, by eliminating the need for post-processing, ECAM ensures the highest quality and integrity of each cold plate and is scalable to support high-volume production demands. The manufacturing process is not only efficient but is also environmentally friendly.

“Partnering with Fabric8Labs allows us to push the boundaries of liquid cooling technology. Their innovative metal 3D printing process enhances our ability to deliver high-performance, reliable, and sustainable solutions,” said John Hamill, COO of Asetek.

“We are excited to collaborate with Asetek to bring our proprietary ECAM technology to the desktop market, providing customers with superior performance. This partnership exemplifies our shared dedication to quality and innovation,” said Jeff Herman, CEO and Co-founder of Fabric8Labs.

Early last year, Fabric8Labs closed a $50M Series B investment round led by New Enterprise Associates (NEA), with participation from existing investors, including Intel Capital, imec.XPAND, SE Ventures, TDK Ventures, and Lam Capital. The capital was used to scale the company’s proprietary ECAM technology and establish a pilot production facility.
