Halloween = <8 … That's sale days left

Our discontinued products sale has been running less than a week and we have already sold more than 600 items from our Lab Essentials opto-mechanics catalogue (PDF download).

That means that quite a few of the more popular products are now very limited stock, and some have completely sold out.

But there’s still time to grab bargains from our POS half inch posts, POH post holder, and kinematic mount ranges while stocks last.

These crazy prices will not be repeated – once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Oh, and as it’s Halloween, here’s a spooky story.

Photonex Europe Live! opens in Coventry tomorrow – Stand B10 for Elliot Scientific

Elliot Scientific returns to stand B10 at Photonex in Coventry tomorrow and Thursday, offering the chance to experience the quality of our internationally renowned Elliot|Martock range first hand.

Exported the world over, our XYZ flexure stages are used for alignment and fiber launch in research and production environments, while our portfolio of miniature translation and rotary stages are often incorporated into OEM products for the optical and semiconductor industries.

For the first time at Photonex we will have items from the Siskiyou catalogue, including their sought after IXF mirror mounts so you can discover how they deliver their exceptional pointing stability in thermally demanding situations.

Also new for 2018 are high speed lasers from IPG Photonics. Operating in the pico and femtosecond regimes, these green and IR lasers are ideal for scientific and medical research.

Finally, life scientists love our Prizmatix ultra high power LED light sources, so we thought you might like to see them too.

Siskiyou add to IXF range with single axis platforms and mounts

Siskiyou Corporation continually develop their popular series of IXF mounts, the latest additions being single axis platforms and mirror mounts.

Mirror Mounts
The new IXF SA series single axis mirror mounts for optics in the 12.7 to 50.8 mm (½” to 2″) diameter range for OEMs. A variety of mounting configurations are available, including bulkhead placement with either front or rear (through the bulkhead) adjustment options, making the mounts particularly useful for space constrained applications. The mounts are currently available in both steel and aluminium versions.

Platforms
Two IXF-based platforms, each containing an arrangement of both threaded and clearance M4 (or 8-32) holes on both sides, are now available. The IXF.05S is a single-axis ½” square flexure with one M4 (8-32) tapped hole for mounting, as well as one on the top for attachment. The IXF1.0S is a larger 1″ square version with seven tapped and two counterbored holes.

Aluminium, stainless or nickel-plated steel
The IXF series offer exceptional stability at a low price point. Performance is achieved through the use of monolithic flexure construction, in which the entire mount – both plates and springs – are fabricated from a single piece of aluminium, stainless or nickel-plated steel.

Steel construction offers superior mechanical and thermal stability, while aluminium confers lower weight and vacuum compatibility.

Please contact us for more information.
