Accessories

1. Introduction

Any optics setup is reliant upon the optical components which make it up. Optical components are fitted to mounting fixtures which serve to keep the component in place while remaining adjustable.


2. Description and Materials

The K-Optics ecosystem of parts includes a variety of auxiliary accessories whose purpose is to facilitate the attachment of the mounting mechanism to the optic table as well as the component to the mount.
Some examples:


Holders

Holders attach to an optical component, such as a mirror or a lens, and in turn are fixed to a tilt mount which can adjust the inclination and displacement of the components.

Locking nuts and tools

Locking nuts are placed by a tool of corresponding threading into sockets in the optic table. These serve as attachment points for integral bases and forks.

Bases

Bases are attached to the optic table via locking nuts and serve as an attachment point for the tilt mounts. They can house the tilt mount at three different angles.

All K-Optics parts are made of engineering-grade glass-filled polymers chosen for specific characteristics which make the part better at its target function. Additionally, all parts are made with versatility of operation in mind. The ability to quickly exchange parts, as well as compatibility are key in the design of these elements.
