Thorlabs offers several balldriver kits that come with a holder designed to minimize laboratory clutter and keep tools organized and easy to find. The BT17(/M) balldriver holder can also hold Ø1/2" post mounted components. The MPT01 magnetic storage tray is ideal for retaining and tidying small tools, parts, and accessories. For larger equipment, consider a 19" rack system with various shelving options that can be used to organize a wide variety of laboratory equipment and tools. The 19" rack system can also be used to hold Thorlabs' optomechanical component kits.

Smart Pack

  • Reduce Weight of Packaging Materials
  • Increase Usage of Recyclable Packing Materials
  • Improve Packing Integrity
  • Decrease Shipping Costs

Thorlabs' Smart Pack Initiative is aimed at waste minimization while still maintaining adequate protection for our products. By eliminating any unnecessary packaging, implementing packaging design changes, and utilizing eco-friendly packaging materials for our customers when possible, this initiative seeks to improve the environmental impact of our product packaging. Products listed above are now shipped in re-engineered packaging that minimizes the weight and the use of non-recyclable materials.b As we move through our product line, we will indicate re-engineered packages with our Smart Pack logo.

  • Travel-based emissions reduction calculations are estimated based on the total weight reduction of packaging materials used for all of 2013’s product sales, traveling 1,000 miles on an airplane, to provide general understanding of the impact of packaging material reduction. Calculations were made using the EPA’s shipping emissions values for different modes of transport.
  • Some Smart Pack products may show a negative weight reduction percentage as the substitution of greener packaging materials, such as the Greenwrap, at times slightly increases the weight of the product packaging.

Hi, The organizers are a great idea. HOWEVER, a lot of us lab rats already have our tools, but need organizers. It would be a huge benefit if you would sell the organizers separately. I especially would be interested in seeing something very similar to your TC4 BUT have two sets of generic holes that would fit either imperial or metric balldrivers. Two sets because I use both imperial and metric balldrivers on a daily basis!

Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: Thank you very much for the suggestions. We will look into providing the organizers separately.

Is it possible to buy a TC4/M without the hex keys/ball drivers? We already have nicer ball drivers we prefer to use, but I would like to buy the caddy.

Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: Yes we can supply the caddy.

I would like to be able to buy just the caddy of the TC2 balldriver set. I had ordered some comfort-grip balldrivers from another vendor, and now I would like more of the same great TC2-caddies to put them in!

MPT01 Storage Tray Rear View with Ø3.25" (Ø82.5 mm) Rubber-Covered Magnet
  • 6" (152.0 mm) Diameter, 1.2" (31.0 mm) Deep Bowl with Pivoting Plastic Cowl
  • Contents Retained Magnetically
  • Durable Stainless Steel Construction
  • Protective Rubber Cover on Magnet Prevents Marring of Mounting Surface

This magnetic storage tray is ideal for securely storing small tools, cap screws, and other fasteners. It consists of a magnet attached to the outside of a Ø6" (Ø152.0 mm), 1.2" (31.0 mm) deep bowl. The Ø3.25" (Ø82.5 mm) magnet simultaneously holds the bowl against a ferrous surface (such as an optical table or breadboard) and secures magnetic parts into the tray. A rubber cover on the magnet protects the ferrous mounting surface from being marred.

When attached to a vertical surface, as shown to the right, a plastic cowl holds non-magnetic or loose items. The cowl pivots and clips in place at the upper and lower ends of travel to prevent accidental movement.

The maximum weight supported in the vertical configuration will depend upon the surface the tray is attached to and the position of the load relative to the magnet. If the tray is attached to a table frame and the load is centered within the tray, we recommend a maximum weight of 1 kg (2.2 lbs). For loads being held by the plastic cowl, we recommend a maximum weight of 0.5 kg (1.1 lbs).
