  • Non-Marring DelrinTM Fingers with Alignment Grooves Firmly Grip the Edge of the Optic
  • Self-Centering Spring-Actuated Design
  • Hold Optics from Ø0.15" (Ø3.8 mm) to Ø1.77" (45.0 mm) or Ø3.00" (Ø76.2 mm), Depending on the Mount
  • Standard and 60 mm Cage-Compatible Versions Available
  • Designed for Easy Lens Insertion

Thorlabs' Self-Centering Lens Mounts feature three spring-loaded fingers that firmly grip optics ranging from Ø0.15" (3.8 mm) to Ø1.77" (45.0 mm) or Ø3.00 (76.2 mm), depending on the mount (see below for details). The lens mount fingers are easily opened with one hand by pinching the actuator tabs between the thumb and forefinger. The lens is simply held between the mounting fingers as the actuator tabs are released. The spring-loaded fingers firmly grip the optic while nested ring design centers it.

These mounts feature a bottom-located 8-32 (M4) tapped hole for direct fastening to our Ø1/2" Posts. The SCL60C(/M) is also compatible with our 60 mm Cage System.

I need to know if you have Self-Centering Lens Mounts for lenses up to 120 Dia. ??

Thank you for contacting Thorlabs. The largest self-centering lens mount we currently offer is for optics that are up to 76.2 mm OD, part number SCL04. We will contact you to discuss other mounting solutions that would suit your application.

A reply from Jens at Thorlabs: thanks a lot for this suggestion. We are discussing a product like that internally for some time already and I will add this request to make sure the solution is being offered as soon as possible. I will also take a note so that we contact you as soon as a prototype is available.

I would really like to see a self-centered spring action optical mounting design that could be implemented directly into a series of lens tubes. Something very similar to your adjustable iris diaphrams that I can install between your 1" lens tubes. Just a thought. I am continuously impressed by the versatility and improvements that I continuously see in the thorlabs line up. Thanks for your continued effort towards quality and customer satisfaction. Cheers, John
