Features

Exceptional Hardness for Optical Kinematic Assemblies

These tungsten carbide pads have extreme hardness to provide highly stable and repeatable kinematic structures, such as custom kinematic bases or mounts. The tungsten carbide material used has a hardness of 1800 Knoops, much larger than stainless steel, measuring 280 Knoops, or aluminum, with 120 Knoops.

A typical configuration for a kinematic base using ''The ''Cone'', ''V-Groove'' and ''Flat'' carbide pads.

Three Styles Available

Three versions of the pad are available and intended to be used together for the best repeatability. CPP-F-6 is a flat shaped pad, CPP-F-6 has a cone shape, and CPP-V-6 is V-groove shaped. Kinematic mounts can be created either in a Cone-V-Flat assembly or a 3-V(groove) configuration.

Precision Finishes For Improved Repeatability

V-groove pads are available in standard and precision grades. Flat and cone-shaped pads are offered only in precision grade, with polished surfaces having a 10 µ-in surface finish to provide the best repeatability. The standard grade V-groove pad has a 63 µ-in. surface finish. Each type of carbide pad is sold in sets of 6 pads.
