Honeycomb Optical Breadboards
Base Lab Tools offers a variety of honeycomb breadboards. Our breadboards are designed by optical researchers with experience in both academic and industrial laboratories. All of our breadboards and tables are proudly made in the USA.
Honeycomb optical breadboards are designed using an aluminum honeycomb core with a smaller cell size to maximize contact between the skins and core, eliminating the de-lamination problems often found in other designs. Starting with the all aluminum light weight honeycomb core, 3/16 in. (5mm) thick skins are added with the desired hole pattern, producing an incredibly rigid and light structure. Unlike heavy steel honeycomb breadboards, our optical tables and optical breadboards are extremely rigid, light, and rust free.
All Base Lab Tools honeycomb, solid breadboards, and optical tables are available black anodized, clear anodized, unanodized, laser-safe coated, uncoated, or white clean-room coated. Custom color coats are available too through our Custom Quote form.
