  • Rigid Construction Accessories Required for Many Complex 3D Assemblies
  • Angle Clamp Options
    • Fixed 90° Mini-Series or Ø1/2" Mounting Options
    • Fixed 180° for Mini-Series Posts

  • Construction Cubes Provide Space-Saving Platform for Multiple Optical Mounts

Thorlabs' Mini-Series Angle Clamps, Brackets, and Construction Cubes provide space-saving mounting solutions. Our angle clamps give the user the ability to orient our Ø6 mm posts in multiple directions and provide rigid, stable, and compact structures that can meet many laboratory needs. The double-bored mounting holes ensure two lines of stable contact, while the aluminum thumbscrews securely fasten the posts in place. Our angle brackets provide a stable platform for constructing rigid assemblies.

For compatibility with Ø1/2" posts, Thorlabs’ offers angle clamps that allow a Ø6 mm post to be mounted to a Ø1/2" post. These angle clamps are available with a fixed right-angle or continuous 360° rotation.

Thorlabs' Mini-Series Construction Cubes can be used to mount multiple optical elements close together, which alleviates the need for multiple posts and post holders. The two cube designs provide adaptable laboratory solutions to crowded table problems.

MSRA90 ER90B(/M) MSWC
Item # MSRA90 ER90B(/M) MSWC
Clamp Angle 90° 180° Continuous 360°
  • Rigid Construction Accessories Required for Many Complex 3D Assemblies
  • Double-Bored Through Holes for Stable Two-Line Contact
  • Aluminum Thumbscrew Provides Secure Holding Force for Locking

Thorlabs' Mini Angle Clamps securely fasten our Ø6 mm mini posts at precise angles (90° or 180°) to one another. In addition to the fixed angle options, we also offer a variant for 360° continuous adjustment (Item # MSWC). The holes of these clamps are double bored to provide two lines of stable contact. The ER90B(/M) has one double-bored hole and 4-40 (M3) taps on the top and bottom, allowing the clamp to be directly threaded onto a mini post. The aluminum thumbscrews located at either side of the clamps secure the Ø6 mm mini posts in place once the desired position is achieved.

A Ø6 mm Post Mounted to a Ø1/2" Post With Continuous 360° Rotation Using the MSWCA Clamp
  • Mounts a Ø6 mm Mini-Series Post or Cage Rod to a Ø1/2" Post
  • Right-Angle and 360° Continuous Adjustment Available
  • Imperial and Metric Versions Available

Thorlabs’ Ø1/2" to Ø6 mm angle post clamps are used to integrate Ø1/2" posts into mini-series constructions or cage system assemblies. These clamps are available as a fixed right-angle, for perpendicular mounting, or with continuous 360° angle adjustment. Individual locking mechanisms for each post, as well as the rotation angle, allow for independent adjustment of each component.

The MSWCA(/M) clamp allows a Ø6 mm cage rod or mini-series post to be mounted to a Ø1/2" post with 360° continuous adjustment. The clamp features witness lines marked every 45°, as well as a 3/16" (5 mm) hex thumbscrew to secure the swivel angle. Two additional 3/16" (5 mm) hex thumbscrews are used to secure the posts into place. The center-to-center distance between the two posts is 0.62" (15.7 mm).

The RA90TR(/M) clamp allows a Ø6 mm cage rod or mini-series post to be mounted perpendicularly to a Ø1/2" post. The design combines a highly stable clamp flexure lock for holding the Ø6 mm post that is secured using a 5/64" (2 mm) balldriver. A 3/16" (5mm) thumbscrew locking mechanism is used for attaching the clamp to the Ø1/2" post. The center-to-center distance between the two posts is 1/2" (12.7 mm).

Three Ø6 mm Posts Attached to an MSCB2

Ideal for building compact structures that require a high degree of rigidity, the MSCB1 construction cube is tapped on all six surfaces, allowing our Ø6 mm mini posts to be attached to any surface (see photo to the right). The MSCB2 has three mounting surfaces, each with a #4 (M3) clearance hole that allows the assembly of three of our Ø6 mm mini posts. These cubes are machined from a solid block of aluminum on all six sides, parallel and perpendicular to within 0.002" (0.05 mm).
