XT34 34 mm Optical Construction Rails
Our standard 34 mm Construction Rails have a dovetail mounting surface on all four sides for use in one-, two-, or three-dimensional constructions. Objects can be slid along the dovetail before being clamped into place. The rail ends are tapped with four M3 holes for mounting lens tube adapters, mounting plates, or rail joiners.
These rails are offered in stock lengths of 200 mm, 500 mm, and 1000 mm. If our pre-cut lengths do not suit your application, custom lengths from 50 mm - 1200 mm can be ordered by using the XT34-CUSTRAIL field in the price box below or contacting Technical Support.
These are also offered as a rough-cut, unanodized extrusion (see below) for our customers who prefer to machine and finish the rails themselves.
The XE34RL2 is an unanodized, rough-cut extrusion for customers who prefer to machine and finish their own rails. Their aluminum construction makes it easy to machine them in your own machine shop.
The XT34SP-500's single dovetail design provides additional mounting flexibility when constructing optical rail systems. These rails can be easily clamped to an optical table or breadboard using our popular table clamps and are extremely compact.
The XT34DP-500's double dovetail design allows two 34 mm construction rails to be coupled together using dovetail clamps. In particular, this enables optical assemblies to be coupled to a base rail and moved as a complete sub-assembly.
