Variable Filter Translation Mount


  • Designed for Filters Up to 3mm Thick
  • Horizontal or Vertical ¼-20 Mounting Holes
  • Posts Not Included
  • Smooth Motion with Integral Locking Screw

Translation mounts are a necessity for adjusting variable filter and beamsplitter positions. Applications and procedures for filtering visible lasers, for instance, usually require some method of translating the filter position with respect to the beam. Edmund Optics offers an economical translation mount for filter movement. Tapped ¼-20 mounting openings on the bottom and side of the mount allow either horizontal or vertical translation. Our mount is designed to maintain the maximum aperture of the mounted filter or mirror, blocking only about ½cm2 total area. Will hold filters, mirrors, beamsplitters, and flat optical components up to 3mm thick.

Optical components are held in shuttle, which translates along a 96mm rail. Two 2-56 nylon-tipped set screws, 12mm apart, oppose a flat nylon backing to safely secure components in the translation mount shuttle. Anodized aluminum rail is grooved to control the travel of the shuttle, which is guided by a thumb screw. Thumb screw is both a handle for translation as well as a locking position screw. Set screw allen wrench is included. Post is not included.
