Digi-Key Electronics Expands Product Offerings to Include Flexible Heaters

Thief River Falls, Minn., May 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Digi-Key Electronics, a global electronic components distributor, announced that it has expanded its thermal management product line by adding key flexible heater manufacturers including All Flex, TurboFlex Heaters, and other suppliers.

In serving engineers, designers, product development groups, and the electrical engineering community, Digi-Key has recognized that their customer base is routinely designing and incorporating flexible heaters in new product designs. In addition, these individuals are typically already using Digi-Key as a source for the control and electrical management of heating products, and therefore adding this new wide breadth of flexible heater options will help streamline their purchasing process.

This expansion is part of Digi-Key's Marketplace initiative to broaden the product offering now available for customers, making Digi-Key more of a one-stop-shop than ever before. Digi-Key is now offering the largest supply of flexible heaters in the country, with nearly 500 different models, sizes, shapes, material types and power alternatives.

"We are extremely excited to add such a broad selection of flexible heater and thermal management components to our Marketplace," said David Stein, vice president, global supplier management at Digi-Key. "We know that our customers continue to want to use our distribution services as a one-stop-shop for all of their component needs and adding such a variety of thermal management products to our line helps us make that possible."

TurboFlex Heaters provides polyimide and polyester foil heaters in sizes from a few square inches to large format layouts covering a wide range of power options. The company is known for its quick turnaround time of custom heaters at economy prices, serving product designers, product development groups, engineers, and small-to-medium production volume. In addition, its standard line of heaters is the largest in the world.

"Digi-Key is in an ideal position to get our flexible heaters into the hands of engineers and designers who are actively designing new products and need flex heaters quickly in order to keep their project moving forward," said Jahn Stopperan, president of TurboFlex Heaters. "With Digi-Key's emphasis on delivering product quickly, the company aligns perfectly with our speed-based business strategy."
