Photonics Spectra Magazine: Spot Cooling Helps Industrial Lasers and Optics Stay on Point


The increasing demand in many end markets for advanced manufacturing systems that are able to increase production and cut costs have positioned laser systems as an important fabrication tool. High-power industrial lasers can generate outputs in excess of 10,000 W when processing thick metals, generating a significant amount of heat not only in the targeted surface but also in the sensitive optics inside the laser. The temperature of these optics needs to be maintained to achieve peak performance for the tool. 





OEM Perspectives: Recirculating Chillers for Low-Power Lasers

Introduction

Lasers come in many different sizes and power levels. High power lasers are commonly used for brazing, metal cutting, deep metal welds and metal cleaning, while low power lasers can be used for printing & marking, soldering, plastic welding and laser powder remelting. For all laser technologies, OEMs seek advanced cooling of the power source and the laser optics to maintain peak performance and long life operation.

2021 Lab Manager Green Labs Digital Summit


Recirculating Chillers Designed for Today’s Green Labs

Today’s chillers are vastly different from their predecessors, offering precise temperature control for laboratory and analytical equipment while delivering energy, size and noise reduction, and environmental impact savings. This versatility allows lab managers to reduce upfront equipment costs and long-term maintenance costs, while increasing lab space and being environmentally compliant.





Machine Design Magazine: Heat Transfer a Cool Concept


Recirculating chillers deliver options for precise temperature control.

Using liquids for heat transfer is an important cooling method for many applications to maximize performance and operational life for thermally sensitive electronics and systems. As next generation systems feature more functionality in smaller, more compact form factors, precise temperature control has become more critical.





Spot Cooling for Industrial Lasers






Industrial laser applications require precise temperature control for maximum performance. Temperature changes distort laser wavelength resulting in poor welding or less precise cutting. UltraTEC™ UTX Thermoelectric Coolers provide spot cooling for industrial lasers systems to deliver robust, low-power and maintenance-free operation.
