With the rapid development of the global manufacturing industry, laser applications involve various fields such as industrial manufacturing, communications, aerospace, shipbuilding, and many other areas. The vigorous development of the manufacturing industry is inseparable from the development of laser technology. And among many applications of laser generators, laser cutting machines are widely used in various industries.

Chiller is a typical attachment in laser cutting machines which include Co2 laser cutting machine for non-metal material, such as leather, fabric, acrylic and fiber laser cutting machine for metal material cutting, such as carbon steel, brass, galvanized zinc sheet, stainless steel sheet. Many users doubt I only want to buy a laser machine to cut; why did the manufacturer add a chiller for me? Do they want to make more money? Is the Chiller necessary for my laser cutting machine?


Let EagleTec CNC explains this point in detail for you.

The CNC metal laser cutter machine is famous for its high cutting precision and fast cutting speed. After the continuous long-term operation, the laser will generate a lot of heat. If the heat is not degraded in time, a large amount of heat will quickly burn out the laser. The machine stops, and you need to replace it with a new laser generator, which costs a lot.

The Chiller is to prevent this situation happen. The water is injected into the internal tank of the machine and cooled by the cold-water mechanism. Then the water pump inside the device injects the low-temperature frozen water into the equipment that needs to be cooled. The chilled water absorbs the heat inside the machine and becomes hot. Then the hot water goes back to the tank for cooling. In this way, the continuous circulation exchange achieves the purpose of cooling.

In conclusion, the Chiller is necessary for a fiber laser metal cutting machine because it can cool the laser and precisely control the temperature required by the laser machine and keep it in good condition.


Small Tips here: In winter, add special antifreeze or drain the water in time after finish using.
