Optical Breadboards serve critical laboratory applications.

April 4, 2013

Available in sizes from 1 x 1 ft to 3 x 6 ft, precision-grade (PG) optical breadboards feature constrained layer modal damping that minimizes torsional and bending modes. Sealed mounting aids containment and clean-up of spills or retrieval of small objects, while 3/16-inch steel triple-core interface honeycomb design helps reduce weight while promoting stiffness and dynamic rigidity. At 2 or 4 in. thick, breadboards offer surface flatness of <±0.004 in. over 2 ft². Read More

Solid Aluminum Breadboard has lightweight, stable design.

February 1, 2013

Available in 4 x 6 in., 6 x 6 in., 8 x 8 in., 6 x 24 in., and 6 x 36 in. sizes, SA2 Series provides stable, lightweight platform for optical components and sub-assemblies. Grid of tapped holes extends to within 0.5 in. of plate edges, while in-grid counter-bored holes and edge chamfers facilitate lifting, aligning, and integrating SA2 onto standard optical tables. While imperial standard models feature ¼-20 tapped holes on 1 in. grid, metric models feature M6 tapped holes on 25 mm grid. Read More

Solid Aluminum Breadboards offer vertical bracket accessories.

March 7, 2011

Offering stable platform for optical components and sub-assemblies, SA2 Series comes in 6 x 24 in., 6 x 36 in., 12 x 36 in., and 24 x 36 in. sizes to afford flexibility for optical experiments. Grid of tapped holes, which extends to within 0.5 in. of plate edges, optimizes mounting surface, while in-grid counter-bored holes and deep edge chamfers facilitate lifting, alignment, and integration onto optical tables. All versions are deep black anodized, minimizing surface reflection. Read More

Vibration-Damping Breadboards suit OEM applications.

June 6, 2007

Available in 4 standard configurations, breadboards provide flat, stable surface for mounting or assembling lasers/small optical systems, prototyping, and precise inspections. Each configuration features natural frequency, nominal broadband damping and flatness of ±0.004 in. over 24 x 24 in. area. Depending on series, nonmagnetic and ferromagnetic products feature extruded aluminum or honeycomb structural cores and anodized aluminum or stainless steel skins. Read More
