- Triple-Plate Double Core StableTop™ Construction Significantly Increases Rigidity
- Enhanced Damping Improves Dynamic Performance for the Most Critical Laboratory Applications
- Sealed Mounting Holes Make it Simple to Contain and Clean Up Spills or Retrieve Small Objects
- Plated Steel Sealing Cup Honeycomb Structure
Thorlabs PBI11106, 3' x 2' x 2.4", PerformancePlus™ Optical Breadboard is designed specifically for demanding R&D applications. It combines all the features of the Performance™ breadboards but with enhanced damping, increased rigidity, and sealed mounting holes. This breadboard is stocked in the USA.
The PerformancePlus breadboards incorporate a triple plate (top, bottom and middle), double-honeycomb design, providing unsurpassed stiffness and excellent dynamic rigidity. The top layer consists of a stainless steel top plate and a secondary steel plate, separated by a unique plated steel honeycomb-like structure. The second layer adds the main steel honeycomb structure and the stainless steel bottom plate. The main honeycomb core is fabricated from strips of precision-formed plated steel, which is bonded together with a high tensile strength epoxy adhesive. The thinner, honeycomb-like top structure is made from cylindrical-shaped steel cups, which enhance the overall stiffness of the breadboard and provide improved support of the top plate.
