Advancing Thermal Management
About Applied Thermoelectric Solutions LLC
About the Founder: Alfred Piggott
Alfred has worked as a thermal systems engineer and innovator since 2000. Alfred's career started as an ASE certified automotive technician. After eight years as a technician, he earned a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan where he won the Mechanical Engineering department and overall School of Engineering Senior Design Competition with an innovative thermal energy conversion device. Alfred later obtained a master's degree from Michigan Technological University where he studied thermal sciences, did research on thermoelectrics and wrote a master's thesis on transient Peltier supercooling.
Alfred has held positions in the advanced engineering organizations of Gentherm and Fiat Chrysler. He has also held engineering positions at General Motors and DENSO Corporation. Alfred is experienced with concept ideation, mechanical and thermal design, computer thermal modeling, prototyping, validation testing, thermal instrumentation, design development and mass production. He holds 5 patents and 6 patents pending and is currently publishing in scientific journals.
The first-time Alfred worked with thermoelectrics, he was hooked. Alfred founded Applied Thermoelectric Solutions LLC with the mission of having fun while advancing the state of the art of thermoelectrics design and applications.
Applied Thermoelectric Solutions LLC. is an innovation and technology company based in Novi Michigan. In the area of solid-state thermoelectric heating and cooling and thermal management, we engage in R&D and develop thermoelectric thermal solutions. With these solutions we provide an innovation service and offer intellectual property for license.
We also provide engineering services in the area of solid-state thermoelectric thermal management. We will design and provide thermoelectric simulation and analysis services that can be used standalone or used synergistically to integrate our thermal solutions into your product, product line or idea.
How We Differentiate
We develop application specific solid-state thermal management solutions that are designed for the unique requirements of every application. Our in-house developed proprietary software allows us to design not only a customized solution but also an optimized one, putting your product ahead of the competition. We work with many different manufacturing partners. This allows us to use the top technology and get the best prices rather than be tied to one specific supplier. We will work with you to understand your requirements and if the requirements are unknown, we will help you develop them. All of this combined with our passion for solid-state thermal management leads to the best possible outcome for your project. Contact us for more information.
