Rotation Mount and Stage Selection Guide

Thorlabs offers a wide variety of manual and motorized rotation mounts and stages. Rotation mounts are designed with an inner bore to mount a Ø1/2", Ø1", or Ø2" optic, while rotation stages are designed with mounting taps to attach a variety of components or systems. Motorized options are powered by a DC Servo motor, 2 phase stepper motor, piezo inertia motor, or an Elliptec™ resonant piezo motor. Each offers 360° of continuous rotation.

  • Internal SM05 (0.535"-40) Threading for Compatiblity with SM05 Lens Tubes
  • One SM05RR Retaining Ring Included
  • Post Mountable via 4-40 (M3) Factory-Installed Stud

The MRM05(/M) mount is a lockable, continuous rotation mount for Ø1/2" optics. The mount features full 360° rotation of the mounting carriage, with a marking at every 2° engraved on the circumference of the carriage. The back of the mounting carriage has a knurled edge for easy grip. A setscrew with a 0.05" (1.3 mm) hex is located on top for locking the rotational position. The center aperture is SM05-threaded (0.535"-40) and accepts Ø1/2" (Ø12.7 mm) optics up to 5.8 mm thick. Optics are held in the mount with an included SM05RR retaining ring, which can be adjusted with an SPW603 or SPW801 spanner wrench. These mounts are designed to provide a 10 mm optic axis height when measured from the bottom of the mount to match our Mini-Series Kinematic Mounts.

The MRM05(/M) has a 4-40 (M3 x 0.5) mounting stud for post mounting, making this mount compatible with our Mini-Series Optical Post Assemblies. The mounting stud has a length that is optimal for mounting into posts, but can be removed if desired. The mounting hole has a depth of 0.09" (2.3 mm); caution should be taken in choosing a setscrew with the correct length, as damage to the part can occur.

High-Precision Rotation Mount for Ø1/2" Optics

Half Inch Rotation Mount Mechanical Drawing
Click for Details

PRM05(/M) Mechanical Drawing
  • Accepts Ø1/2" (Ø12.7 mm) Optics up to 0.23" (5.9 mm) Thick
  • 360° Continuous Coarse Rotation
  • Direct Read 2° Graduations Engraved on the Edge of the Rotation Dial
  • ±7° of Fine Adjuster-Driven Rotation when Locked
  • Vernier Scale with 10 arcmin Resolution
  • Ideal for Ø1/2" Polarization Optics
  • Compatible with our SM05 Lens Tubes
  • One Retaining Ring (SM05RR) Included
  • Bottom-Located 8-32 (M4) Tapped Hole for Post Mounting

The PRM05(/M) high-precision rotation mount for Ø1/2" optics combines 360° of continuous coarse manual rotation with precise, backlash-free adjustment. The SM05 (0.535"-40) threaded inner bore accepts Ø1/2" optics up to 0.23" (5.9 mm) thick as well as any of our SM05-threaded components. Optics are secured between the rear lip and one SM05RR retaining ring, which is included with each mount.

The edge of the rotation dial features a laser-engraved scale marked at 2° increments and can be coarsely rotated manually using the knurled ring located on the rear of the mount (see drawing to the right). Values read from the vernier scale can be converted to arcmins by multiplying by a factor of two. The 4-40 setscrew, which is inset into the side of the body of the mount, locks the dial face and engages the adjuster screw for fine rotation. When locked, the adjuster provides ±7° of rotation.

The PRM05(/M) is ideal for mounting our SM05PM5 polarizing prism mount, which features compatible SM05 threading. The cover on the SM05PM5 can be rotated, thereby allowing the user to block the two side ports when they are not required. The PRM05(/M) can be purchased bundled with our SM05PM5 (Item# PRM05GL5(/M) below). Together, they provide 360° of high precision rotation for either our 5 mm Glan-Laser or Glan-Taylor Polarizer.

CRM05 Mount in a 30 mm Cage System

The CRM05 is a lockable, continuous-rotation mount for Ø1/2" optics. The mount features full 360° rotation of the front dial face and a setscrew for locking the rotational position into place. External SM1 threads (1.035"-40) allow the mount to be threaded directly onto any internally SM1-threaded device such as SM1 lens tubes or 30 mm cage cubes. The center aperture is SM05-threaded (0.535"-40) and accepts Ø1/2" (Ø12.7 mm) optics up to 0.26" (6.5 mm) thick. Optics are held in the mount with an included SM05RR retaining ring. Two notches along the mount's circumference accommodate the SPW801 adjustable spanner wrench to aid in securing the mount into place.

The knurled edge of the CRM05 and the 360° laser-engraved scale marked at 2° increments allow for precise, repeatable positioning and fine angular adjustment. Four equally spaced witness lines are engraved into the mount's perimeter, ensuring there is always a witness line in a convenient and easily readable position. The mount can be locked into position using the 0.035" hex setscrew on the outer edge.

Ø1/2" Kinematic Rotation Mount

  • Combines Kinematic Angular Adjustment with Rotation in One Mount
  • Three 1/4"-80 Lockable Stainless Steel Adjusters with Removable Knobs and Brass Bushings for Smooth Adjustments
  • Two #8 (M4) Counterbored Mounting Holes Allow Left-Handed or Right-Handed Orientations
  • SM05-Threaded (0.535"-40) Rotation Ring with Locking Screw Provides 360° Rotation
  • Engraved Rotation Scale with 2° Graduations

The KS05RS mount is designed to hold Ø1/2" (12.7 mm) optics in situations where it is necessary to control the tip/tilt position as well as the rotation of the optic. It is capable of mounting optics up to 0.41" (10.4 mm) thick using the included SM05RR retaining ring. Additionally, SM05 (0.535"-40) lens tubes may be threaded onto the mount to accommodate thicker optics.

Thorlabs' Kinematic Rotation Mounts combine the features of our Precision Kinematic Mirror Mounts and Manual Rotation Mounts, providing continuous 360° rotational adjustment and ±4° kinematic tip/tilt adjustment. These mounts are therefore ideal for holding optics with rotational asymmetry, such as polarization optics or round cylindrical lenses.

The rotation of the mount can be locked in position using the 4-40 locking screw (0.050" [1.3 mm] hex). Three 1/4"-80 adjusters with brass bushings provide smooth kinematic adjustment. Each adjuster may be locked with a locking screw using a 5/64" (2.0 mm) hex key. If higher adjustment resolution or control is desired, the 1/4"-80 adjusters used in this mount can be switched with DAS110 or DM22 Differential Adjusters.

Please note that while this mount is designed to hold Ø1/2" optics, the mount uses the same form factor as the KS1 Ø1" mirror mount in order to incorporate the rotation ring.

For more information on our kinematic rotation mounts, including versions for Ø1" and Ø2" optics, visit the complete web presentation.

6-Axis Kinematic Optic Mount

  • Six Adjustment Axes with Locks
    • Kinematic Pitch/Yaw: ±4° with 4.2 mrad/rev
    • X and Y Translation: ±1.5 mm with 254 µm/rev
    • Z Translationa: ±0.13" (±3.2 mm) with 318 µm/rev
    • Continuous 360° Roll with Engraved 2° Graduations
  • Independent X, Y, and Roll Adjustment
  • SM05-Threaded Bore for Ø1/2" (12.7 mm) Optics up to 0.57" (14.4 mm) Thick
  • Two #8 (M4) Counterbores for Post Mounting

The K6X05 6-Axis Kinematic Optic Mount is designed as a general-purpose, high-precision positioner. The optic cell can be translated along or rotated about 6 axes, and each axis has a locking screw for stability. The translating cell has SM05 (0.535"-40) threading for attaching Ø1/2" lens tubes or mounting Ø1/2" (12.7 mm) optics up to 0.57" (14.4 mm) thick using the included SM05RR Retaining Ring, which can be tightened using an SPW603 Spanner Wrench (sold separately). In testing, the X and Y axes of the K6X05 caused less than ±35 µm of crosstalk. If higher adjustment resolution is desired, the three 1/4"-80 adjusters used for tip/tilt translation can be switched with DAS110 or DM22 Differential Adjusters.

For more information on our 6-axis kinematic mounts, including versions for Ø1" and Ø2" optics, visit the complete web presentation.

  • Z-axis translation is accomplished by turning all three tip/tilt adjusters equally in the same direction.
