Flexure Mechanism; Aluminum/Steel/Stainless Steel; Optic Size from 12.7 mm (0.5 inch) to 101.6 mm (4.0 inch); Different Thread Types
The IXF series is a unique, monolithic flexure mount found nowhere else in the industry. Unlike other flexure designs, they have lockable 100TPI adjustment screws that have a rolled-cap design to guarantee that the flexure will not be forced past its elastic limit.
Three versions are available: steel-bulkhead mounted, steel bulkhead/post mounted, and aluminum-bulkhead/post mounted. The steel-bulkhead mounted version (IXF1.0, IXF.75, and IXF.50) has 4-40 tapped holes on two sides and is electroless nickel plated. The steel-bulkhead/post version (IXF1.0i, IXF.75i, and IXF.50i) has the 4-40 tapped holes on only one side, and has 8-32 (M4) tapped holes on two edges, as well as lock screws for the ﬁne pitch 100TPI adjustment screws. This model is also electroless nickel plated.
For vacuum compatible and flight-ready applications, Siskiyou developed a method to produce a spring-loading effect in an aluminum version. The aluminum version (IXF1.0a, IXF.75a, and IXF.50a) has the same features and performance speciﬁcations as the steel bulkhead/post version.
