A cross clamp is a device used to fix a pole or rod coupled with various optical elements at a certain angle in an optical system using lasers and other devices.
There are two types: fixed and rotating. In the case of the fixed type, the angle of the rod can be adjusted in a 90 degree direction. With the rotary type, the angle can be adjusted to any desired angle. The rod fixing method is called the split-tightening method, which clamps the rod inserted into the clamp from the periphery to provide a strong fixation.
Laser beams are used to analyze and irradiate various materials. Various optical elements are used to guide the laser beam from its exit to the material.
The optical elements used have rods attached to them, and the optical path must be adjusted by changing the height and angle of the rods. The optical path can be easily adjusted by using fixed or rotating cross clamps.
Cross clamps are frequently used by manufacturers of optical instruments and in academic fields.
A clamp is a tool used to secure a material to a workbench or other object. In the field of construction, a clamp is a tool used to clamp a material to a table, whereas in the field of medicine, a clamp is a tool used to clamp a tube, etc., like a clip.
Cross clamps are also used as a tool for fixing. They are mainly used in situations involving optical instruments and are used for parts such as rods and poles that are critical to the fixation of optical elements. Rods are often used with diameters ranging from 12 mm to 20 mm.
There are fixed and rotary types. The former can only be fixed at right angles, while the rotary type can convert the orientation of the rod in any direction. Either one should be selected depending on the situation, such as the angle of laser emission and the angle of the material surface. Aluminum is often used as the material of the clamp and is relatively lightweight.
A through-hole is provided through which the rod can be inserted and screwed from the outside to hold the rod tight (called the split-tightening method).
