I would like to see an AMA extension platform that had holes compatible with the fiber bench components or that allowed attaching a fiber bench to the side of a stage. The fiber bench has several great holders for small parts and it would allow for close alignment of a ferrule or collimator.

Thanks for your feedback. I will pass this to the engineer in-charge and also post on our Internal forum.

Hello, I just wanted to alert you that it took me forever to finally find this page listing Flexure Platforms. ("Multi-Axis Flexure Stage Accessories: Platforms": http://www.thorlabs.us/newgrouppage9.cfm?objectgroup_id=1170&pn=MMP1#131 ) I believe the issue is that, even though it shows "Accessories for Flexure Stages" in the Breadcrumbs to this page, the page is Not listed under the parent category page at http://www.thorlabs.us/navigation.cfm?guide_id=144 . You could make this a lot easier by listing "Multi-Axis Flexure Stage Accessories: Platforms" on the "Accessories for Flexure Stages" page. Thanks, -- Demis

Response from Laurie at Thorlabs to Demis: Thanks so much for taking the time to point out a navigational difficulty you had on our website. I have taken a look at the web page for our MMP1 as well as the guide page that leads there, and I fully agree that an update/improvement should be made. Currently our “Extension Platform” box leads to this page, but I can totally see how you wouldn’t expect to find “Top Plates” under that box. I think the best option might be to break the current page into two pages, one for “Extension Platforms” and another for “Top Plates” such as the MMP1 you were looking for. We will look to implement these changes over the next several days. Thanks again for the feedback!

The AMA009 mounting bracket is used in our fiber launch systems; the large mounting surface is ideal for mounting large or multiple components near a flexure stage.

Close proximity mounting using the AMA010 Cleat and AMA111 Clamp.

  • Secures Components to NanoMax, MicroBlock, or RollerBlock Stages
  • Cleats for Mounting Single Components
  • Mounting Blocks and Clamps for Close Proximity Mounting of Multiple Components

The AMA010(/M) Cleats have a flat milled along one side. To lock an accessory along the center alignment groove, rotate the cleat so that the flat is facing the groove. Place the accessory into the groove between the cleats, rotate the cleat so that the rounded edge covers the edge of the mount, and lock down the 6-32 (M3) locking screw and washer. The cleats can be rotated without needing to remove the locking screws. See the animation to the right for details. The included screws are 5/16" (8 mm) long and are used with a 3/32" (2.5 mm) hex key.

For mounting multiple components in close proximity, we offer the AMA110 mounting blocks. These mounting blocks feature a line of nylon-tipped setscrews to secure components, and allow for easy repositioning and very close mounting. The blocks are secured via two holes and are supplied with either 6-32 or M3 cap screws.

The AMA111 Narrow Device Mounting Clamps offer an alternative solution when devices need to be mounted close together. They are secured using an M3.5 or M3 washer and a 6-32 or M3 cap screw, compatible with a 7/64" or 2.5 mm hex key, respectively.
