High-powered lasers generate a significant amount of heat that must be removed from the laser system to avoid overheating critical components. Laser cooling can help accomplish three goals: maintaining a precise laser wavelength and higher output efficiency, achieving desired beam quality, and reducing thermal stress on a laser system. Recirculating chillers, liquid-to-liquid cooling systems, ambient cooling systems, cold plates, and heat exchangers are a few of the cooling technologies used in laser systems' liquid cooling loops.
Lytron provides laser cooling solutions for EDM, induction heating and ovens, metallurgy, diode pumped lasers, CO2 - cutting lasers, spindles and many other high-end applications.
The customer required a high performance ambient cooling system which had to fit on top of a digital laser cinema projector. For this application Lytron designed an ambient cooling system with a custom high performance inner fin cold plate as well as an air to liquid heat exchanger assembly.
The performance of high-powered lasers depends on effective cooling. High-powered lasers generate a significant amount of heat that must be removed from the laser system to avoid overheating critical components. Carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers, excimer lasers, ion lasers, solid-state lasers, and dye lasers all use liquid cooling to remove excess heat... Read more
