LABasix SA2 aluminium breadboards

Share this on social media:

Newport has introduced the LABasix SA2 series of low-cost aluminum breadboards for basic photonic research and OEM optical assemblies. The new, solid aluminum breadboards, machined from 0.5-inch-thick 6061 aluminum, provide a stable yet lightweight platform for optical components and sub-assemblies.
The highly durable, SA2 Series incorporates several unique design features that improve the flexibility and ease-of-use compared to traditional aluminum breadboards. The standard grid of tapped holes extends to within 0.5-inches of the plate edges, providing more mounting surface than competitive products. Newport’s new SA2 also features 'in-grid' counter-bored holes and deep edge chamfers for easier lifting, aligning, and integration of the SA2 onto standard optical tables.
