Mounting Platforms for 95 mm Rails
Rail Plate for 95 mm Rails
Support Large Optomechanical Assemblies
Drop-On Rail Carriage, 1" Long
The difference between the mounting height of the imperial drop-on rail carriage and the imperial rail plate is 0.3" (7.6 mm). For the metric parts, the height difference is 7.5 mm (0.29").
Our mounting platforms for 95 mm rails contain a 1/4"-20 (M6) tapped hole matrix that provides mechanical compatibility between 95 mm rails and standard optomechanics.
Drop-On Rail Carriages
95 mm Rail Construction
The drop-on rail carriages can be attached anywhere along an exposed rail side.
These Drop-On Rail Carriages can clamp to the side of a 95 mm rail by tightening the side-located 1/4"-20 (M6) locking screws. When the locking screw is loosened, the assisted opening mechanism pushes the hinged clamping arm out and provides ample clearance for the dovetail of a 95 mm rail. This allows the carriage to be inserted and removed anywhere along an exposed rail side. Furthermore, while the carriage is clamped onto a rail, the locking screw can be loosened slightly, allowing the carriage to slide along the rail edge and be repositioned in another location.
Each rail carriage has an array of 1/4"-20 (M6) tapped holes for mounting optomechanical components; see the table below for details. For a carriage with a lower profile when mounted on a rail, please consider the XT95P12(/M) Rail Plate below.

XT95RC1 1" Long Drop-On Rail Carriage on Rail Side
The XT95P12 is inserted through the rail channels.
The XT95P12(/M) Rail Plate consists of a closely packed array of seventeen 1/4"-20 (M6) tapped holes and four 1/4" (M6) counterbores. It fastens to a 95 mm rail by tightening the four included 1/4"-20 (M6) cap screws at the corners. These locking screws are attached to two included T-Nuts that span the length of the rail plate and slide into the T-Slots on the rail side. Click on the image below to the left for details on the clamping mechanism.
Please note that the XT95P12 requires the rail end to be unobstructed for installation. For a platform that can be dropped in anywhere along a rail, please see the Drop-On Rail Carriages above.
