Efficiently Cool 3D Printing Systems

Aug. 25, 2020

The Nextreme Recirculating Chiller Platform offers reliable and precise temperature control of 3D printing systems used in additive manufacturing applications in a wide range of industries. The platform is able to efficiently control the temperature of all sensitive electronics within 3D printing systems, including the power source, the laser or electron beam optics, and the thermal print head. In addition, a chiller can be used to quickly cool smaller and/or highly detailed 3D printed objects to preserve fine design details.

For maximum uptime, the Nextreme Chiller features the optional “hot-swappable” 5-micron water filter for filtering particulates from the coolant circuit, which means that the unit can continue operating even during maintenance. With no moving parts, an optical fluid level sensor offers higher reliability and increased uptime when compared to chillers that use mechanical float switches. The programmable alarm alerts the user when the fluid level drops below acceptable operating conditions. To prevent damage to equipment in high pressure operating conditions, the chiller senses the supply fluid pressure and will alert users when low- or high-pressure limits have been exceeded.


The LCD touchscreen display allows the user to easily control temperature setpoints, flow and alarm settings, and coolant type while the coolant level can be monitored via the indicator window on the front panel.

The Nextreme Chiller Series is available in three standard models, 1800 W, 2800 W, and 5000 W. All these models can be configured to meet specific application requirements.
