Self-Centering Lens Mounts
60 mm Cage-Compatible
Post-Mountable Self-Centering Lens
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.
The three spring-loaded fingers of these Standard Self-Centering Lens Mounts automatically grip optics ranging from Ø0.15" (3.8 mm) to Ø1.77" (45.0 mm) for the SCL03 and Ø0.15" (3.8 mm) to Ø3.00" (76.2 mm) for the SCL04. The ring design centers the optic within the mount. Both of these mounts have a bottom-located 8-32 (M4) tap direct fastening to our Ø1/2" posts.
The SCL03 and SCL04 self-centering mounts can also be utilized with replacement Delrin fingers to form an easy-to-use optics cleaning fixture.
