Dovetail Clamp

Thorlabs' Rigid Platforms provide a secure and stable and stable platform for mounting hardware and devices. Options include an M6-tapped platform or an insert holder which can be fit with a blank or 1/4"-20 (M6) tapped platform. In each case, the platform or holder is held on a Ø1.5" solid stainless steel post by a secure dovetail clamp (see image to the left). Two 3/32" hex cap screws on the dovetail clamp lock or release the horizontal movement of the platform or holder. When the height collar is secured, the platform or holder can be rotated while keeping the vertical height constant. In addition to the stands, we also offer rigid stand post holders separately.

These platforms provide stable options and modularity for mounting a variety of hardware or devices into any system. Each stand is available in four different heights (see chart above) and comes with either a simple platform or a holder. They make mounting hardware into an existing system quick and easy, allowing the user to customize the experimental setup. Additionally, our accessories for the insert holder have options for mounting tapped plates (imperial or metric) or blank plates (sold below). Thorlabs also offers an extended line of rigid stands for specialized areas of research such as electrophysiology.

Hi, Is the insert holder sold separately? I could not find it, would be grateful if you could help.

Has this design changed? I just bought several inserts for a Thorlabs rigid stand bought in 2014, and the captive screws for 3 different insert plates all seem too small for the rigid stand's insert holder! Can you help? I'd rather not have to pay for a whole new stand (and wait for it - I'm on a schedule!)

Rigid Stands with M6-Tapped Platforms

Each Thorlabs Rigid Stand includes a 200 mm × 60 mm platform with 24 M6-tapped holes. The platform, held on a Ø1.5" solid stainless steel post, can be rotated when the height collar is secured. In addition to rotation, the platform can be adjusted vertically over the range listed in the table in the Overview tab above, and the sliding dovetail design enables horizonal adjustment of the platform. The rotation and vertical adjustments are controlled by a quick-release lock; the height collar, when secured, will allow the platform to be rotated while maintaining the desired height. The video in the Overview tab above illustrates all these adjustments. The base has 1/4" (M6) counterbored slots that allow the base to be attached to a breadboard using 1/4"-20 (M6) cap screws.
