Designing Cost-Effective Precision Optical Mounts

Whether you're an OEM or a scientific researcher, you need a mount that will deliver precision and stability in a form that tits in your setup. Choosing the right mount is a complicated task of balancing functionality - size, ease of use and performance - with cost. To make the right choice for application, it is helpful to know what goes into the design and manufacture of a typical mount. In this article, we will take a look at what issues an engineer faces in the production of opto-mechanical mounts, including performance, materials, site and the manufacturing process itself.
