Features

  • Black Anodized Solid Aluminum Construction
  • Metric Boards Manufactured & Stocked in Europe
  • 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 the Hole Patterns tab for information on tap spacing). The small footprint and slim profile make these breadboards ideal for compact areas. 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), as shown in the image to the far right, for access to components on both sides.

Each breadboard features four or five mounting holes, offset from the array of 1/4"-20 (M6) threaded holes, which are counterbored to create an uninterrupted surface for any intended application. The four standard mounting holes are located at each corner of the breadboard, inset 1" from each edge (25 mm on metric). All breadboards except the MB12D, MB3030D/M and MB1530/M include a fifth counterbored mounting hole at the center of each board. Using the center mounting hole increases the mounting options available, reduces stress at the corner mounting holes, and increases rigidity when heavy loads are placed on the boards (see photo to the right). The mounting holes may be used to attach the breadboards to optical tables, other breadboards, mounting posts, brackets, or a variety of other surfaces or mounts.

Vacuum Compatibility
For vacuum applications, we recommend using our selection of Unanodized Breadboards.

Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: The MB series breadboards are solid aluminum breadboards with no honeycomb structure in them. It is fairly easy to bore a hole through these breadboards. We can custom make these with different size holes in the middle. We will contact you for some details and a quote.

Is it possible to easily drill into these breadboards for example to allow a periscope to go through or do they have some sort of honeycomb structure inside them? Is it possible for you to make custom sized holes into standard sized breadboards? Cheers!
