Honeycomb Core Optical Breadboard

The Honeycomb Core Optical Breadboard is a solid, low-weight but rigid platform for equipment mounting. It provides broadband vibration damping without surface deflections with its high-density honeycomb core and high-quality 430 stainless steel top and bottom skins. In addition, the aluminium sealed cups underneath each tapped hole (metric or imperial) ensure easy cleaning. This breadboard is perfect for applications such as electron microscopy, interferometry and scanning tunnel microscopy, to name but a few.


Why is MCI’s Honeycomb Core Optical Breadboard the ideal solution?

  • MCI’s Honeycomb Core optical breadboards are built to the highest standards and provide excellent damping with minimal deflection under load

  • The breadboard design and production ensure optimised efficiency to provide you with a platform that is solid, stable and flat

  • These breadboards are precision-drilled and tapped on a 25 mm x 25 mm grid, with sealed cups underneath each hole to prevent the loss of tiny components through the holes, and for easy  leaning


MCI’s Honeycomb Core Optical Breadboard design offers you:

  • Thermal stability; a high performance athermalised product through careful bonding processes

  • Stiffness; 5 mm thick top and bottom skins together with the honeycomb core structure ensures stiffness under load

  • Surface flatness; ≤ 0.05 mm/m2

  • Surface roughness; ≤ 0.8 μm

  • Longevity; the highly conductive stainless steel grade 430 top skin is corrosion-resistant

  •  Convenience; top and bottom skins are manufactured from ferromagnetic stainless steel and have metric M6 tapped holes for all your equipment mounting needs. The sealing cups  underneath each hole further ensure easy cleaning



Please remember that we are flexible in terms of dimensions and specifications and that it doesn’t necessarily cost more for customisation to your requirements.
