Optical Surfaces Expands Range of Large Diameter Mirror Mounts

The OS series of large-diameter mirror mounts from Optical Surfaces Ltd. are proven to provide a secure platform for larger, high-precision flat, off-axis, and spherical mirrors in stability-critical applications.

Manufactured in robust, black anodized aluminium, OS series mounts have traditionally been available in four standard sizes to accommodate mirrors up to 300 mm, 400 mm, 500 mm and 550 mm diameter.

The new OS350 and OS450 mounts provide researchers with a smaller and lighter stable mounting platform for mirrors between 300 - 400 mm and 400 – 500 mm diameter. No longer do you have to purchase the larger and heavier next size up!

All six OS series mounts make it possible to rapidly align a large diameter mirror within a few arc seconds. Each mount comes with a baseplate to facilitate rapid and simple mounting onto an optical table. Angular alignment of mounted mirrors is quickly and precisely achieved about the vertical and horizontal axes using dual-action adjusters with fine-screw and ultrafine differential micrometre action.

OS series mounts are supplied with adjustable feet to facilitate rapid and simple mounting onto an optical table. As an option – OS series mounts may be motorised to facilitate remote operation in hostile environments or for use in limited space applications where manual adjustment may be difficult.
