Lightweight Aluminum Honeycomb Optical Breadboards
Our aluminum optical breadboards have 3/16 in. thick aluminum skins laminated to aluminum honeycomb core. These breadboards have greater than 50% direct core-to-metal skin contact, providing a strong bond and static rigidity. Holes are sealed with a film that can be punctured and the core breaks away, allowing the full depth of the breadboard to be utilized.
We offer these breadboards in 4 in., 2 in., 1 in. and 1/2 in. core thicknesses. The flatness measures less than 0.01 in. over 1 ft. cumulative distance and the entire breadboard is coated in a black, anti-reflective finish.
Our breadboards are designed by optical researchers with experience in both academic and industrial laboratories. The design stresses functionality and performance at the lowest possible cost to the customer.
Regularly stocked inventory sizes are listed below and custom lengths and widths can be provided at no additional cost. Unique features such as through holes, cut-outs, taps, and more can be added to fully customize a breadboard as well.
