16 mm Cage Cube and Prism Mount
2 Opposite Sides with Ø0.635" Through-Holes
4-40 and 3-48 Tapped Holes on Each Side
Mounts to Ø4 mm SR Series Cage Rods
Cage cubes are key components of our optomechanical cage assemblies. They are an ideal way to join multiple subsystems via a centrally located interface. These components can also act as an instrumentation box for small electro-optical components. A nylon-tipped setscrew is provided for holding a prism mount (SPM2 featured below) in place. The solid one-piece construction, machined parallel and perpendicular to within 0.002" (0.05 mm), maintains excellent alignment of joined subsystems.
SPM2 Mounted In SC6W 16 mm Cage Cube
The SPM2 Prism Mount is designed to hold a prism up to 10 mm tall in a SC6W 16 mm Cage Cube or any cage mount with a Ø0.64" (Ø16.1 mm) smooth aperture. Optics can be secured using an adhesive, such as epoxy. Once the optic is mounted within the cage cube, the mount can rotate 360° to provide coarse adjustment. The SPM2's drilled center hole allows a laser beam to pass through the mount. After establishing the desired position, lock the mount into place using the 4-40 nylon-tipped setscrew.
±5° Swiveling Delrin Tip
Provides Adequate Clamping Force
3/32" Hex Socket Adjuster Clamp
Hex Key Included
The SB6C cage cube clamp is compatible with the SC6W 16 mm cage cubes. The clamping mechanism is a #10-32 adjuster with a 3/32" hex socket head and a Delrin swivel tip to help avoid marring the clamped object. A 3/32" hex key is included with each SB6C. Depending on the optical component being mounted, either a blank cage plate (SP01) or a prism mount (SPM2) can be used as the base for this clamp.
