Breadboard T-SlotClick for Details
The T-Slot located on the sides is compatible with our 25 mm rails and accessories.

Thorlabs' UltraLight™ Honeycomb Breadboards offer a high strength-to-weight ratio and all-aluminum plates and core. Due to this construction, each breadboard has similar coefficients of thermal expansion throughout, which minimizes thermal instabilities. These breadboards are ideal for optical setups where portability and dynamic rigidity are important. They are typically used as replacements for aluminum, steel, or granite surface plates, as well as for applications demanding a totally nonmagnetic surface. Additionally, breadboards ending in "F" or "A" feature a t-slot that is compatible with our 25 mm rails and accessories. This allows for construction of rail systems or optical enclosures without the loss of taps. These breadboards also have plastic covers on the corners; two have labels with either the item number or serial number.

Choosing an Optical Breadboard
When choosing an aluminum optical breadboard, stiffness is a major consideration. For aluminum optical breadboards, Thorlabs offers two levels of stiffness: high and enhanced. Although most people associate deflection under load with thickness, it is actually the stiffness of a board that determines the deflection.

Vibration Isolation Tutorial
Optical Tables Capabilities

The higher the stiffness, the better the breadboard's ability to resist bending when a load or force is applied to it. Therefore, when a heavy load is placed in the center of a breadboard with high stiffness, the board will deflect more than it would if the same load were placed on an enhanced stiffness breadboard. This deflection can create misalignment between two components on opposite ends of the breadboard. This is especially important, for example, when conducting experiments that require sliding optical setups across the breadboard while maintaining a straight optical axis.

We also offer a broad selection of Nexus® Steel Honeycomb Breadboards, which provide greater stiffness and vibration damping. For a quick comparison of our different breadboard options, please see the BB Selection Guide tab.

Frame and Isolation Options
We offer a number of support options for breadboards. Our standard breadboard frames are available with rigid supports, or with passive or self-leveling active vibration isolation. We also offer passive and electronic isolator feet for mounting a breadboard on top of a table.

Ultralight™ Honeycomb Aluminum Breadboard Construction

Thorlabs UltraLight™ optical breadboards offer high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent thermal stability. These breadboards are ideal for optical setups where portability and dynamic rigidity are important. Breadboards with item numbers that do not have a letter at the end feature standard aluminum side panels, while those with item numbers ending in F or A feature t-slots with compatiblity with our 25 mm rails and their accessories.

As shown in the diagram to the right, these breadboards incorporate a double-plate, single-honeycomb design, providing excellent stiffness and dynamic rigidity (see test performed below). The top layer consists of a 6 mm aluminum top plate. The second layer adds the main aluminum honeycomb structure and the 3 mm aluminum bottom plate. The main honeycomb core is fabricated from strips of precision-formed plated aluminum, which is bonded together with a high tensile strength epoxy adhesive. This all-aluminum construction minimizes thermal bowing effects caused by temperature variations.

Excellent Surface Flatness
Breadboard flatness is critically important during many experimental setups. Lack of local flatness requires readjustment of components for height variations across the breadboard and can cause component “wobble”. Thorlabs breadboards offer an unsurpassed flatness of ±0.15 mm (±0.006") over any 0.3 m2 area due to the high-precision aluminum plates which are specially handled to maintain superior flatness throughout the manufacturing process. A unique thermal bonding process ensures that stress is not induced during manufacture, thereby retaining the flatness of the top plate.

 

Stiffness Comparison Testing: Honeycomb Aluminum Breadboards vs. Solid Aluminum Breadboards

Plot of Breadboard Stiffness
Figure 2: Plot Showing the Overall Displacement of the PBG60120A and MB60120/M After a Uniform Force was Applied to the Center of the Breadboard (See Diagram to the Left)

Purpose: Show that an UltraLight PBG60120A breadboard measuring 600 mm x 1200 mm x 25 mm with an unpackaged mass of 20.3 kg has a greater stiffness then the equivalent size MB60120/M solid aluminum breadboard that is 0.5" thick and has an unpackaged mass of 23.49 kg.

Procedure: As shown in Figure 1 below, each table was supported by fulcrum points that were spaced 1 m apart. Then, various loads were applied uniformly across the center of the breadboard and the amount of deflection was measured. From the data collected, a plot of Force vs. Displacement was created as shown to the right.

Breadboard Stiffness Measurment
Figure 1: Both breadboards were reinforced at two defined fulcrum points. A uniform
force was then applied to the center of each board and deflection measured.

Results: The result shown in figure 2 shows that the PBG60120A honeycomb aluminum breadboard, which is 14% lighter than the MB60120/M solid aluminum breadboard, is 4.1 times stiffer. This can be found by dividing the two stiffness values, 1.44 x 106 and 3.49 x 105.

Conclusions: As can be seen in Figure 2, it is clear that the PBG60120A UltraLight honeycomb aluminum breadboards, though lighter by 3.19 kg, have a greater stiffness than the MB60120/M 0.5" thick solid aluminum breadboards. Therefore, our UltraLight series of breadboards is an excellent choice if you are looking for a light-weight breadboard with extremely good rigidity.

Hello, I would like to know if it is possible to safely drill a 1/4 inch hole through the top and bottom of the breadboard. the hole would be through an existing location of a tapped hole that is already there. thanks, josh
bhallewell  (posted 2018-05-31 12:10:40.0)
Response from Ben at Thorlabs: Thank you for your question. We would advise against drilling through a PBG* breadboard as there is no guarantee of where the Aluminium Core is located with respect to the hole. If you contact the core with your tooling, this could likely cause damage to the breadboard & your tooling. We can supply a new special breadboard with the hole already in place surrounded by a liner. Please contact your local Tech Support team for further details of Custom Breadboard capabilities & pricing.

Is there a possibility to have some through holes made in the breadboard of this kind? I am trying to design simple way to mount the breadboad to custom aluminum frame. I will be glad for help.
bwood  (posted 2018-02-28 06:08:04.0)
Response from Ben at Thorlabs: Thank you for your feedback. We have many different custom options for our tables and breadboards, including through holes, available. I will be in contact with you directly to gather more information on your requirements.

What is the difference in packaged and unpackaged mass?
jlow  (posted 2016-02-15 10:01:19.0)
Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: The unpackaged weight is just the weight of the breadboard. The packaged weight includes both the breadboard and the shipping packaging.

Hi Thorlabs, I have previously bought a PBG11118 and a PBG11107. I recently want to buy a PBG11111. However, I found out the distances between back mounting holes are not aligned in inch multiples. Is there any possibilities that I can customize a PBG11111 with back holes intervals as 40" and 24", rather than 40.9" and 23.2"? Thank you. Best, Xindong
besembeson  (posted 2015-12-03 01:09:55.0)
Response from Bweh at Thorlabs USA: Yes this customization is possible. With the current version, you can also use similar 1.5" posts with a base such as the PB4 and clamping fork such as the PF175. I will contact for quotation if you still prefer the integer separation.
muellenbroich  (posted 2014-02-03 14:46:39.563)
I also need to cut out a section in the centre of the board and additionally need two holes to allow periscopes to get through. Can you help making custom sized holes in standard sized breadboards?
msoulby  (posted 2014-02-04 07:16:52.0)
Response from Mike at Thorlabs: We will contact you directly to discuss you custom breadboard requirements.
ian.hill  (posted 2013-06-25 14:08:24.45)
If I were to cutout sections of the board would the honeycomb structure remain sufficiently intact to form a suitable edge and not fatally compromise the board?
jlow  (posted 2013-06-26 08:40:00.0)
Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: This depends on how the cut is made and the shape/location of the cut. Modifications like this are best done during production instead of post-production. We will get in contact with your to discuss about your application.
jjurado  (posted 2011-07-18 13:59:00.0)
Response from Javier at Thorlabs to coopb: You can certainly drill additional holes as needed into the bottom of the breadboard. However, care must be exercised so as not to damage the internal honeycomb structure.
coopb  (posted 2011-07-15 08:37:01.0)
Can I drill and tap additional mounting holes into the bottom of the board? Im using vibration isolating feet and need more than four to carry the load Im putting on the board. Thanks, Brian
Adam  (posted 2010-04-09 12:11:58.0)
A response from Adam at Thorlabs to Karl: I will contact you direct to find out how far off the hole locations are on your board. The holes drilled on the top of the breadboard have a tolerance of +/- .004". The holes on the bottom of the breadboard are drilled by hand and have a larger tolerance, +/-.04".
karl.vandyk  (posted 2010-04-08 17:41:36.0)
I just received the order TS0551689. I am trying to install the plates and I have found that the holes on the underside are not very accurate to the edge reference. I have two of these plates mounted side by side and the 1/4-20 holes on the top do not line up from one breadboard to the other. What is your tolerance on teh location holes on the underside? Thanks Karl van Dyk Engineer SRI international
