Features

  • Clamps and Brackets Provide a Means to Support Cage Segments with Posts
  • Solutions Available for 16 mm, 30 mm, and 60 mm Cage Systems
  • Snap-On Options for 30 mm and 60 mm Cage Systems
  • Mounting Options for Mini Series, Ø1/2", Ø1", and Ø1.5" Posts

Thorlabs' cage supports allow our cage systems to be post-mounted. We offer supports to mount 16 mm cage systems on our Mini-Series Posts, as well as adapters to mount our 30 mm or 60 mm cage systems to our Ø1/2", Ø1" (25 mm), or Ø1.5" posts. For additional information on our cage systems, please refer to the Cage Overview tab.

We also offer the CRA30(/M) 30 mm cage rotation adapter that is compatible with our Precision Rotation Stage.

Mounting Brackets
Thorlabs offers fixed cage post mounting brackets for 16, 30, and 60 mm cage systems. These are secured to two cage rods and allow the cage to be mounted to a post via a counterbored hole. We also offer snap-on cage mounting brackets for 30 and 60 mm cage systems. These may be used to post mount cage rods and are easy to install on assembled cage systems.

Post-Clamp Mounts
These mounts allow for horizontal mounting of 30 or 60 mm cage systems to the side of our Ø1" (25 mm) or Ø1.5" posts. The CV1530(/M) allows for vertical mounting of a 30 mm cage system and clamps to a Ø1.5" post. We also offer the RA90TR(/M), which allows for horizontal mounting of cage rods to a Ø1/2" post.

Cage System Overview

The Cage Assembly System provides a convenient way to construct large optomechanical systems with an established line of precision-machined building blocks designed for high flexibility and accurate alignment.

16 mm, 30 mm, and 60 mm Cage System Standards

Thorlabs offers three standards defined by the center-to-center spacing of the cage assembly rods (see image below). The 16 mm cage, 30 mm cage, and 60 mm cage standards are designed to accomodate Ø1/2", Ø1", and Ø2" optics, respectively. Specialized cage plates that allow smaller optics to be directly inserted into our larger cage systems are also available. All locking setscrews used in these cage plates are standard 4-40 setscrews, which use a 0.05" hex key.

Standard Threads

The flexibility of our Cage Assembly System stems from well-defined mounting and thread standards designed to directly interface with a wide range of specialized products. The three most prevalent thread standards are our SM05 Series (0.535"-40 thread), SM1 Series (1.035"-40 thread), and SM2 Series (2.035"-40 thread), all of which were defined to house the industry's most common optic sizes. Essential building blocks, such as our popular lens tubes, directly interface to these standards.


An example of the standard cage plate measurements determining cage system compatibility.
Standard Cage System Measurements
Cage System 16 mm 30 mm 60 mm
Thread Series SM05 SM1 SM2
Rod to Rod Spacing 16 mm (0.63") 30 mm (1.18") 60 mm (2.36")
Total Length 25 mm (0.98") 41 mm (1.60") 71.1 mm (2.8")
Cage Components
Cage Rods 16 mm These rods are used to connect cage plates, optic mounts, and other components in the cage system. The SR Series Cage Rods are compatible with our 16 mm cage systems, while the 30 mm and 60 mm cage systems use ER Series Cage Rods.
30 mm
60 mm
Cage Plates 16 mm These serve as the basic building blocks for a cage system. They may have SM-threaded central bores, smooth bores sized for industry standard optics or to accommodate the outer profile of our SM Series Lens Tubes, or specialized bores for other components such as our FiberPorts.

Post and Breadboard Mounts and Adapters Mounting options for cage systems can be found on our Cage System Construction pages. Cage Systems can be mounted either parallel or perpendicular to the table surface.
Size Adapters Cage System Size Adapters can be used to integrate components from different cage system and threading standards.
Specialized Components Thorlabs also produces specialized cage components, such as Filter Wheels, a HeNe Laser Mount, and a FiberPort Cage Plate Adapter, allowing a wide range of our products to be integrated into cage-mounted optical systems. Explore our Cage Systems Visual Navigation Guide to see the full range of Thorlabs' cage components.

Greetings, The LCP01B arrives with two cap screws, clamping the flexure locks to the ER rods. I'm afraid these screws are imperial, while the part is supposed to be universal. Do you plan to offer this part with metric screws as well? Thanks, Lior

Response from Bweh at Thorlabs USA: Thanks for pointing this to us. We are going to consider adding the suitable hex key with the part (short term) to keep this universal. Long term, we will alter the design to use a #3 cap screw that has a universal 5/64 (2mm) hex key.

Is it possible to get something like this, which supports the cage vertically, for your 1" posts instead of 1.5"?

Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: We do not currently carry a vertical cage mount for Ø1" post (but we can custom make this). We will look into the possibility of carrying this in the future.

    • CPMA1: ±0.28" (±7.0 mm)
    • CPMA2(/M): ±0.20" (±5.1 mm)

These cage mounting brackets provide users with a snap-on solution for adding support posts to assembled 30 mm Cage Systems. The flexure-based design can be quickly snapped onto an open section of two Ø6.0 mm Cage Rods (not included), allowing for easy installation or removal without requiring the disassembly of a cage system. Slide the brackets into the appropriate position and lock into position using the included 0.050" hex key. The slotted post-mounting feature of the brackets allows the cage rods to be installed off the axis of the post (see above for adjustment ranges).

Two options are available for post mounting. The CPMA1 features a slotted #8 (M4) counterbore that allows for mounting of the adapter using an 8-32 (M4) capscrew (included). This is useful for supporting 30 mm cage systems using fixed posts, such as our Ø1" (25.0 mm) posts with 8-32 (M4) taps, as the cage system can be rotated and then fixed to the post at any arbitrary angle. Alternatively, the CPMA2(/M) offers a captive 8-32 (M4 x 0.7) nut in a slot for mounting to Ø1/2" posts in Ø1/2" post holders.

The application to the right shows the CH1530 supporting a cage system composed of 4 ER6 cage rods, an SM1Z Z-Axis Translation Mount, and a CP02T cage plate.

  • Can Be Oriented to Mount Cage Systems Vertically or Horizontally
  • Quick-Connect Mechanism for Fast Drop-In/Drop-Out of Cage Assemblies
  • 15 lb (6.8 kg) Load Capacity

The CV1530(/M) Cage Clamp allows a 30 mm cage system to be mounted vertically to our Ø1.5" Posts. The quick-connect mechanism allows for drop-in/drop-out mounting of a cage segment; to secure the cage segment, tighten the cap screw on the cage clamping mechanism using a 9/64" (3 mm) hex key or balldriver. Each cage clamp includes a C15QR(/M) Quick-Release Handle for mounting to a Ø1.5" post; additional quick-release handles can be purchased separately below. For low-profile applications, the handle can be removed and replaced with a 1/4"-20 (M6) cap screw at least 1/2" (12 mm) long.

The vertical cage clamp can be converted to a horizontal cage clamp. To do so, unscrew the four cap screws on either side of the cage clamps using a 9/64" (3 mm) balldriver or hex key, turn the front plate 90°, and replace the cap screws.

The application to the right shows the CV1530 mount supporting a 30 mm cage system in a vertical orientation. The assembly is composed of four ER4 cage rods, an SM1Z Z-Axis Translation Mount, and a CP02 cage plate. This configuration can be used in a variety of applications including the inspection station shown to the right, which consists of a CMOS Camera, a Camera Lens, and a Microscope Objective.
