Base Lab Tools introduces their latest line of solid aluminum breadboards


April 7, 2016, Stroudsburg, Pa. - Base Lab Tools, the new name in optical breadboard design & manufacturing, introduces their latest line of solid aluminum breadboards- liquid cooled optical breadboards. This new line is being offered in 3 sizes, stocked to ship same day. The models offered on their website include a 6”x 6”, 10”x12” and a 12”x18”, 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' 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.

Base Lab Tools offers hundreds of optical breadboards from stock and custom. Often in applications like CPU cooling, laser diode and laser bar cooling excessive amounts of heat is produced. This optical breadboard / cooling plate allows the user to connect their own chiller and cool their components.
