SMS6B Ball Bearing Boom Stands

The SMS6B ball bearing boom stand is optimized for routine inspection of large samples where fluid motion in a horizontal plane is required.

The horizontal arm is mounted on linear ball bearing units in the solid aluminum cross slider. Locking the arm in position is quick and easy with the secure soft-grip knobs. The stereo microscope mounting is via the industry standard 5/8″ bonder socket. Non-bonder style focus mounts are easily accommodated via SPOT Imaging’ tilting and non-tilting adapters. Various base mounting options are: a weighted base, a rugged table clamp and a 1/4″-20 grid table mount system that can be used on standard tables.
