This Bases and Post Holders Essentials Kit contains all of the commonly used post holders, bases, and table clamps in easy-to-use, labeled compartments. The large variety of sizes provides the maximum amount of flexibility when breadboarding an optical system. Refer to the Contents tab above for detailed information about the components included with the imperial and metric versions of this kit. This kit is best used in conjunction with the ESK16 (ESK16/M) Post and Accessory Essentials Kit.

Application Idea: Use the RK4101 rack shelf to organize our ESK Series Essential Kits within our RK3884 standard 19" rack. Post-mounted optical elements can be stored in the 19" rack with the use of the RK4102 rack shelf as shown in the photo to the right.

All ESK Series Essentials Kits are equipped with easy-to-read labels complete with product icons, allowing quick access to all products housed within the kits. All ESK Series Cabinets have slots in the rear of the case, shown to the left, for wall mounting and feature indentations on the top and four feet on the bottom for stable stacking.

Smart Pack

  • Reduce Weight of Packaging Materials
  • Increase Usage of Recyclable Packing Materials
  • Improve Packing Integrity
  • Decrease Shipping Costs

Thorlabs' Smart Pack Initiative is aimed at waste minimization while still maintaining adequate protection for our products. By eliminating any unnecessary packaging, implementing packaging design changes, and utilizing eco-friendly packaging materials for our customers when possible, this initiative seeks to improve the environmental impact of our product packaging. Products listed above are now shipped in re-engineered packaging that minimizes the weight and the use of non-recyclable materials.b As we move through our product line, we will indicate re-engineered packages with our Smart Pack logo.

  • Travel-based emissions reduction calculations are estimated based on the total weight reduction of packaging materials used for all of 2013’s product sales, traveling 1,000 miles on an airplane, to provide general understanding of the impact of packaging material reduction. Calculations were made using the EPA’s shipping emissions values for different modes of transport.
  • Some Smart Pack products may show a negative weight reduction percentage as the substitution of greener packaging materials, such as the Greenwrap, at times slightly increases the weight of the product packaging.

Hey Thorlabs team! Great work, keep it up. We do not use your kits, but make up our own kits using Thorlabs equipment. But we would like to use your kind of labels used on the optomechanic kits (the small pictograms + article numbering). Are those available anywhere? Thanks and BR, Peter.
