December 12, 2017, Stroudsburg, Pa. - Base Lab Tools, the new name in optical breadboard design & manufacturing, introduces their latest line of solid aluminum breadboards- liquid cooled, mechanically fastened optical breadboards.  This new line is being offered in 2 sizes, stocked to ship same day.  The models offered on their website include a 6”x 6” and 10”x12”, and as always- Base Lab Tools welcomes all inquiries for custom requirements.

Each Water Cooled Optical Breadboard has 1/4-20 tapped holes on 1 inch centers, as well as 5 counter bores for rigid mounting. Base Lab Tools' new design incorporates two unanodzied aluminum plates and copper tubing, fastened together using ¼-20 hardware. No glues or epoxies are used; avoiding the potential issues with out-gassing in moderate vacuum applications as well as in a clean-room environment.  These liquid cooling optical breadboards are designed for use with heat creating components; such as lasers, CPUs, and LEDs. Base Lab Tools has designed versatility into this product by making the counter bores reversible, to be used from either side of this 1" thick optical cooling plate. Flexible tubing can be slip-fit into place, or compression fitting can be used when higher volumes of cooling (or heating) liquids are being used. Then connect to your chiller unit.

  • No Glue, epoxy or oil

  • Unanodized, matte finish

  • Mechanically fastened

Each Water Cooled Optical Breadboard has 1/4-20 tapped holes on 1 inch centers, as well as 5 counter bores for rigid mounting. Base Lab Tools' liquid cooling optical breadboard is designed for use with heat creating components; such as lasers, CPUs, and LEDs. Base Lab Tools has designed versatility into this product by making the counter bores reversible, to be used from either side of this 3/4" thick optical cooling plate. This allows for it to be used with the copper tubing exposed for more direct cooling, or the breadboard can be turned over and be used as a solid aluminum cooled heatsink. Flexible tubing can be push-fit into place, or compression fitting can be used when higher volumes of cooling (or heating) liquids are being used. Then connect to your chiller unit.

  • External looping of the cooling tube compensates for expansion and minimizes disruption to the hole pattern.
  • Components can be mounted directly against copper tubing for maximum cooling.
  • Standard size 3/8" OD copper tubing.
  • Unique double counterbore mounting holes allow the breadboard to be flipped to using the aluminum as large heatsink cooled underneath.
