The IXF.tbs series are a new version of Siskiyou popular IXF monolithic flexure mounts. This new variation incorporates the same features as their IXF but has the tip/tilt adjustments moved to create a top adjusted flexure. This feature is ideal for applications where accessibility to the mount is limited and standard model can’t be accessed. Built into the top adjustment mechanism is a simple split-clamp lock for the 100TPI adjustment screws. These locks work best when they are pre-loaded prior to adjustment, adjustment made, then locked in place.
Siskiyou have also added clear aperture cutouts to maximize beam clearance for beamsplitter applications. These cutouts are set at 45°, but are large enough to accommodate beam angle variations of ±5°. These mounts use Siskiyou 100TPI rolled thread adjustment screws for low stiction ﬁne adjustments and are swaged at the end to prevent over-travel of the mount.
The IXF.tbs series mounts are manufactured from one solid piece of spring steel, then nickel plated so they will not corrode and can be used in ultra violet laser environments. These models are also available in aluminum version; for “flight” or vacuum applications. Aluminum models exhibit the same performance speciﬁcations as the steel models. Custom OEM versions available in steel and aluminum.
