Features

Convenient Platform for Optical Assemblies

These solid aluminum, nonmagnetic, optical breadboard plates provide a low cost, convenient platform for building optical assemblies, small optical experiments and optical subsystems.  Our wide variety of breadboard accessories make it easy to incorporate these breadboards into larger optical systes with ease. 

Low Reflectance Working Surface

These solid aluminum optical breadboards have a matt black anodized surface that reduces unwanted reflections compared to honeycomb breadboards that use a stainless steel working surface.

Counterbored Through Holes for Easy Mounting

SA2 solid aluminum optical breadboards features 4 counterbored through holes in the corners, making it easy to retrofit to existing tables for increased workspace and convenience.

Double density solid aluminum breadboard shown

1/4-20 or M6 Mounting Hole Grid

Our SA2 series breadboards plates are offered with a 1 inch grid of 1/4-20 mounting holes or a 25 mm grid of M6 mounting holes (M- metric versions).  We also offer breadboard plates with a double density hole pattern for compact applications that require mounting holes closer to each other.

LaserCleanTM Optical Breadboards

We offer our SA2 solid aluminum optical breadboards in LaserClean versions to minimize outgassing for vacuum related experiments.

Optical Breadboard Handles

SA2-HNDL breadboard handles are ideal for lifting and handling SA2 optical breadboards. Made in Italy with reinforced glass fiber, these handles are robust, light weight and resistant to oil, solvents and other chemical agents.

90 Degree Breadboard Mounting

Our SA2 optical breadboards can be mounted vertically using our 90 degree breadboard angle brackets.  They are offered in three sizes (SA2-BRKT-18 shown) See accessory table for details.

Kinematic Breadboard Adapters

These kinematic adaptors allow you to remove and replace SA2 breadboards while preserving the final alignment.  They mount directly to SA2 series breadboards either on the top side or bottom side of the breadboard. Top-side mounting provides the lowest surface height but leaves less mounting area on the breadboard.

Vibration Isolating Mounting Feet

Sorbothane vibration isolation mounting feet are ideal for isolating a small SA2 breadboard from a standard workbench.  The mounts are sold individually and supplied with a 1/4-20 or M6 thread for easy mounting. They are offered in 50 or 70 durometer. For heavier loads simply add more mounts. For optimum isolation use the mounts at as close to the maximum load as possible.
