Low profile mount offers stable platform for large mirrors

Low profile mount offers stable platform for large mirrors

Product News Tuesday, April 30, 2024: Optical Surfaces Ltd.

Optical Surfaces Ltd. has developed a new low profile mirror mount that provides a secure platform for large and heavy high-precision flat, spherical, on-axis and off-axis mirrors.
Robustly designed in black anodized aluminium, the mount can be tailored to match the size and shape of the mirror in a compact low-profile envelope.To enable optimisation of alignment the mount allows fine adjustment of mirror rotation. In addition, angular alignment (tip and tilt) of mounted mirrors is achieved about the vertical and horizontal axes using dual-action adjusters with fine-screw and ultrafine differential micrometer action.
  Perfect for stability critical applications these low-profile mounts make it possible to rapidly align a large mirror within a few arc seconds. Each mount comes with a baseplate to facilitate rapid and simple mounting onto an optical table. For further information on a low-profile mirror mount tailored to your application please visit or contact Optical Surfaces Ltd. on +44-208-668-6126 / The company’s ISO 9001-2015 approved manufacturing workshops and test facilities are deep underground in a series of tunnels excavated in solid chalk. This provides an environment where temperature is naturally thermally stable, and vibration is extremely low. With such stable conditions testing of all beam collimators becomes quantifiable and dependable. In addition to these natural advantages, Optical Surfaces Ltd. has invested in an extensive range of test equipment and uses trusted methods to ensure accurate and reliable testing of surface accuracy, quality, and slope errors.
