LINOS Microbench™

Excelitas Technologies’ original 4-rod cage system for high-precision optical systems

Image of Excelitas Technologies' LINOS MicrobenchExcelitas Technologies’ LINOS Microbench is a compact 4-rod component cage system for numerous areas of application, from lighting and imaging structures to optical-experimental setups, measurement/inspection equipment, and interferometric applications. The LINOS Microbench products' outstanding characteristics include their high mechanical stability, made with the highest quality materials and high axial precision due to narrow production H7 tolerances. The Microbench is easy to handle, even for first-time users. A high degree of flexibility is ensured not only through the wide variety of components available for LINOS Microbench systems, but also by the range of adjustment elements and the system's modular design.

The basic principle lies in the combination of standardized mounting plates for integrating optics of all types, connected by stainless steel rods. Both linear and spatial three-dimensional setups can be implemented quickly and easily. Mounted optics developed specially for the Microbench with diameters from 18 mm to 31.5 mm such as lenses, beam splitters, polarization optics, and optical filters are available.

Instruments made up of Microbench components are also ideal for demonstrations and practical training. The exposed design makes it easy to observe the entire system and to alter or expand its most basic workings by simply adding components, such as grids, prisms, mirrors, or other accessories.

Since its introduction, optical and mechanical components of the Microbench system have become indispensable in optical laboratories, and experimental setups are built with many optomechanical devices and accessories.
