Solid Aluminum Optical Breadboards, Double Density Holes
- Double-Density Hole Pattern
- Black Anodized Solid Aluminum Construction
- Metric Boards Manufactured & Stocked in Europe
- Custom Sizes Also Available
- Counterbores for Mounting Breadboards
- Same Hole Pattern as Our Circular Optical Breadboards
Our double density breadboards are constructed from a 1/2" (12.7 mm) thick aluminum plate to maintain flatness over the full length and provide a double density hole pattern of 1/4"-20 (M6 × 1.0) tapped holes (see Hole Patterns tab for information on spacing). The slim configuration can fit into compact areas and maximizes mounting versatility by doubling the number of tapped holes on the mounting surface. Since the holes are threaded completely through these base plates, components can be mounted on both sides at once. Standoff posts allow the breadboards to be mounted above the surface of an optical tabletop (or breadboard) for access to components on both sides.
Each breadboard features 1/4"-20 (M6) counterbores at each corner for mounting. All breadboards except the MB1530/M include a center counterbore for added stability.
For vacuum applications, we recommend using our selection of Unanodized Breadboards.
