Our Aluminum optical breadboards have 3/16″ thick aluminum skins laminated to a nonmetallic honeycomb core. Our breadboards have greater than 50% direct core to metal skin lamination providing a strong bond and static rigidity. The core has 3/8″ honeycomb cells with inherent broadband energy absorption, eliminating the need for additional internal dampers to suppress the resonance found in metal cores. Holes are sealed with a polymeric film that punctures when used, allowing the full depth of the breadboard to be used.
Flatness: 0.01″ over 1′ cumulative distance. Entire breadboard coated in a black anti-reflective finish. We offer these breadboards in 4″, 2″, 1″ and 1/2″ core thicknesses.
Our breadboards are designed by optical researchers with experience in both academic and industrial laboratories. The design stresses functionality and performance at the lowest possible cost to the customer. Advanced materials and designs are used to provide increased vibration damping and decreased weights when compared to conventional breadboards and tables. Listed below is out stocked inventory.
