Alignment Gimbal MG001

The Photonic Devices Model 11-MG001 was specifically designed for the precise alignment of laser beam expanders and focusing optics. Since most laser beams do not propagate along the mechanical axis of a laser rail, four (4) degrees of motion are required to optimize the performance of the mounted optical component. The 11-MG001 combines the features of a gimbal with an X-Y translator, thereby providing the adjustability necessitated by the alignment tolerances of most diffraction-limited optics. This gimbal can be mounted to either a Laser Carriage or Optical Rail slide mount via three #8/32 x 3/8" threaded holes. Standard bore diameters include 1.25", 1.48", and 1.50".
