Aluminum Breadboards
IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 19, 2009 – Newport Corp. has launched the LABasix SA2 series low-cost aluminum breadboards for basic photonic research and OEM optical assemblies. The solid aluminum breadboards, machined from 0.5-in.-thick 6061 aluminum, provide a stable yet lightweight platform for optical components and subassemblies.
The highly durable SA2 Series incorporates several 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 in. of the plate edges, providing more mounting surface than competitive products do, according to the company. The breadboards also features in-grid counter-bored holes and deep edge chamfers for easier lifting, aligning and integration onto standard optical tables.

They are offered in the most popular standard sizes with custom sizes and shapes also available. The imperial standard models feature ¼-20 tapped holes on a 1-in. grid; metric models feature M6 tapped holes on a 25-mm grid. Both imperial and metric versions are anodized deep black to minimize surface reflections, with other surface finishes available upon request.
