Unlike optomechanical components manufactured by other companies ours are made from non-anodized aluminum.  Electrical resistance between connected non-anodized aluminum parts is very low.  This make our components perfect for use in systems for sensitive electrical measurements.  You do not have to drill holes in or scratch all parts in a complex system to have them electrically connected for proper grounding. We guaranty that when parts are connected mechanically, they are connected electrically.  If you need black non-reflecting surfaces simply apply black spray enamel on the assembled system.

Small breadboard mounting plates.
This 1/8" thick aluminum mounting plates are available in two sizes 3"x5", and 5"x7".  Each have 15 (SP-15)or 35 (SP-35) 6.5 mm diameter holes on a 1" square pattern.

Bench Plates.
Manufactured from high quality aluminum our Bench Plates provide solid base for various configuration of  components.  Each plate have a number of 1/4" (6.25 mm) threaded holes on a square pattern with 1" (25.4 mm) distance between centers and 1" from sides of the plate. Similar metric plates (25 mm square pattern, M6x1.0 thread) can be manufactured at your request.
