Welch Mechanical Designs has designed and manufactured several low distortion mirror mounts for large aperture mirrors. The purpose of these mounts is to provide a stable optical platform at a wide range of environmental conditions while maintaining the optical properties of the supported mirror in any orientation. WMD uses several mounting techniques and a unique combination of different thermal expansion materials to achieve these goals. We also perform FEA to ensure optical flatness, vibrational modes and other critical parameters are optimized.
