  • Compatible with Both Metric and Imperial Breadboards
  • Sorbothane Pads Provide Damping Between the Breadboard and Frame
  • Optional Under Shelf

The PFM series of support frames are designed to provide a lightweight, portable option for supporting optical breadboards. The all-steel construction and vibration-damping Sorbothane pads provide an excellent base for an optical breadboard (compatible breadboards are listed on the Breadboards tab above).

The frame comes with casters to facilitate relocation without needing to remove the optical breadboard and its contents. Once the frame is in the desired location, the four leveling feet can be lowered to level the table and lift it off the casters. These support frames are shipped fully assembled. An optional under shelf is also available.

In addition to the breadboards listed in the tables above, Thorlabs carries a large supply a breadboards suitable for almost any application. Many of these breadboards can be supported by the PFM series frames; however it is important to remember that the maximum recommended load for these frames is 200 kg (441 lbs), which includes the mass (weight) of the frame, breadboard, and all of the items on the breadboard.

Is there any way to get one of these stands with a custom height? I have a board (PBG12106 - UltraLight Series II Breadboard, 36" x 24" x 2.2", 1/4"-20 Taps) that needs to be raised a maximum of 47" and is adjustible down anywhere between 1/4"-1/2".

Response from Rob at Thorlabs: Thank you for your interest in our breadboard frames. Unfortunately at this time we cannot offer customised versions of our PFM range. We can however offer customised versions of our upgraded ridged frame series, PFR, found here - http://www.thorlabs.de/newgrouppage9.cfm?objectgroup_id=1871. The maximum height we can offer for this range is 1000mm. If you would be interested in a quotation for one of these custom frames, please contact our Technical Support team with your request - techsupport@thorlabs.com.

Is there any way to securely attach a breadboard (eg MB6090/M) to one of these frames (eg PFM52501)? The overview suggests that the breadboard only rests upon Sorobothan pads. Although I can see how this approach may be suitable in a 'controlled' lab environment, in more chaotic enivornments (eg a production line) it can be more important for everything to be firmly bolted together and secure.

Response from Chris at Thorlabs: No, there is no way to fix a breadboard to these frames as they are. They are only intended to have the board rest on top.

Response from Tor at Thorlabs to Matt: Thank you for your interest in our MB2424 and our PFM52502. Please note that the breadboard is designed to rest on the Sorbothane pads on the frame, so relative motion between the two breadboards must be considered in choosing these over the MB2448. The hole patterns for the breadboards can be viewed in the AutoCAD PDFs: http://www.thorlabs.com/Thorcat/6200/6279-E0W.pdf http://www.thorlabs.com/Thorcat/14000/14052-E0W.PDF The 1/4"-20 taps on 1" centers would have the same spacing in this configuration.

I am buying (2) MB2424 to bolt up to a pfm52502 frame table. Im assuming (2) 2 x 2 plates will bolt up the same as a 4 x 2 plate? What is the bolt pattern dimensions of the table? Thank you, Matt

These large under shelves span the rear of the support frame and provide a large shelf depth, while not impeding user movement in front of the frame. The surface provides extensive storage both at the rear and sides of the frame and allows heavy items, such as controllers and power supplies, to be stored away from the work surface. The size of the shelf corresponds to the size of frame with which it is to be used. The shelves ship complete with attachment brackets and all necessary screws. For details on installation, please see the manual, available by clicking the Docs icon (red docs icon) below.
