Breadboards with both 8-32 (M4) and 1/4"-20 (M6) high-density tapped holes feature either four or five 1/4" (M6) counterbored holes.
Thorlabs' Mini-Series breadboards are offered with either 4-40 (M3) tapped holes or both 8-32 (M4) and 1/4"-20 (M6) tapped holes, and are designed for setups where space is a premium. These high-density breadboards offer increased tapped hole density with 1/2" (12.5 mm) spacing.
Our Mini-Series line consists of components that are compatible with 4-40 (M3) or 8-32 (M4) threads. The 4-40 (M3) taps in the MS12B(/M) breadboard make it compatible with smaller 4-40 (M3) Mini-Series components, such as our Ø6 mm posts. Our other breadboards are compatible with 8-32 (M4) Mini-Series components, such as our Ø12 mm pedestal posts and MSL post holders, and also include 1/4"-20 (M6) taps for integrating larger optomechanical components, such as our Ø1/2”, Ø1”, and Ø1.5” post assemblies.
Each breadboard features four or five 1/4" (M6) counterbored holes. The four standard counterbores are located at each corner of the breadboard, inset 1" from each edge (25 mm on metric), enabling these breadboards to be mounted onto our standard breadboards, mounting feet, or post assemblies. The fifth counterbored hole is located at the center of the breadboard to reduce stress at the four corners and to increase system rigidity when mounted.
