Internal view of the Lucas optical table enclosure and a typical optical table

The Lucas enclosure is mounted on rails either side of the optical table using the table mount holes located on the extreme edges.  This means that that minimum table space is used. The internal view of the enclosure shows the two cable inlet ports designed to house laser cables and any other services required by the user.

The optical table shown above is a typical example of optical table suitable for the Lucas Laser enclosure.

For specific requirements contact Lasermet with the dimensions of the table.
