Kinematic mounts

Swap with ease and accuracy

To give you maximum flexibility in the way your instrument is configured, certain key components within Renishaw's spectrometers are designed to be interchanged. These include parts such as diffraction gratings and Rayleigh filters.

Kinematic mounts

Renishaw has applied its expertise in precision mechanical design to develop kinematic mounts for these components. A kinematic mount enables the accurate and repeatable location of two parts.

The mounts make it easy to remove and replace components. You can be confident they will relocate in precisely the same position, avoiding time-consuming realignment.

These mounts also make installation and servicing fast and efficient. Your instrument will be up and running quickly.

No wear, know how

The mating surfaces of Renishaw's kinematic mounts are tungsten carbide. This material has a very high hardness and is more wear-resistant than steel. This ensures you will have a lifetime of reliable and stable operation from the mounts.

Speed and convenience

Most users have no need to manually change components and instead, for added convenience, take advantage of full automation.

Many aspects of Renishaw's innovative technology are covered by patents.
