What is an Optical Table?

An optical table is a vibration control platform that is used to support systems used for laser- and optics-related experiments, as well as other precision engineering and manufacturing applications.

Why is Singapore Heavy Engineering making Optical Tables?

  • To help scientists

  • To test the limits of internal fabrication capabilities

  • To strategically strengthen our future

  • To inspire

"To generate, inspire, and uphold—through science, engineering, and commerce— the strength between human cultures and nature."

-Singapore Heavy Engineering, 2021

This is What Our Customers Have to Say:

"Wow, I didn't know Singapore had an optical table company. I am really impressed by the quality of the optical table. This is my best purchase the year."

-Dr. Chia, Scientist from Private Sector R&D Facility, Singapore

"As having bought multiple tables over the years, the quality of this table is a good as any I can find on the market. Excited to build a new setup on it."

-Dr. Zhang, Scientist from a Local Research Institution, Singapore

Our Process


Components are machined to spec in-house in Singapore using scientific-grade materials sustainably sourced from raw materials and steel mills in Asia.


Precision engineering and brute force come together on our production floor.


Prior to delivery to the customer, testing and characterization is performed on dimensional tolerances, vibrational response curves, and load-bearing capacities.



  • Sizes: 1200 x 900 mm, 600 x 600 mm, 300 x 300 mm, or can be customized

  • Thickness: 100 mm, 50 mm, or can be customized

  • Every breadboard is made in-house (in Singapore), and individually tested, and shipped domestically free of charge

  • Default 12.5 mm or 25 mm hole border for maximum usable area

  • The flatness of the top layer is controlled to ±0.1 mm over any 500 x 500 mm area

  • 5 mm stainless steel top layers

  • All steel construction increases thermal dimensional stability


  • Packaged options come with tables for convenient ordering and less deciding

  • Heavy-duty all-steel construction building on experiences in the shipbuilding industry

  • Supported by strong leveling castors to carry overweight loads and reduce small parts contacts such as conventional thin leveling rods to improve dimensional stability over varying loads

  • All support structures are made in-house (in Singapore) and individually tested, and shipped domestically free of charge


  • Manufacturing capabilities and custom solutions

  • Transparency, local presence, and trust

  • As a company of scientists, engineers, and builders, we are driven to support scientists and the science to be discovered.
