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.
