Superior Mechanical Design
Anti-vibration technology works in horizontal direction by utilising ball bearings sandwiched between precision raceways, forming the plane of isolation.
When the ball bearings displace and restore into their positions in raceways, they act like nonlinear springs that cut off the transmission of vibrations.
The oscillating motion of the ball bearings have no "natural" frequency, therefore the resonance between the two halves of the isolation plane become physically impossible.
As a result, the isolator filters out a broad band of input vibration frequencies and insures a constant level of vibration transmission reduction. Vertical vibration isolation is handled by the proprietary, nonlinear spring mechanism with near zero tangential stiffness for vibrations.
The natural frequency of the spring remains relatively low and constant across a large range of spring compression, effectively isolating the vertical vibrations.
Isolators Featured in VIP Vibration Isolation Platform
Microscope platforms are compact, effective and easy-to-use platforms that significantly reduces vibrations from disturbing sensitive instruments such as microscopes, inspection or analysis equipment.
Patented Mechanical Isolation
Mechanical isolators using technology that is maintenance-free and user configurable.
Featuring great robustness for tough environment, quicker settling time than pneumatic isolators and solid performance for vibration isolation, the isolators are very popular among microscopy, precision measurement and inspection, and other sensitive applications.
This from chapter 48 of the handbook gives some guidelines
|Equipment up to 40x microscope 8 - 80 Hz curve 0.203mm/s|
|Bench scopes up to 100x 8 - 80 Hz curve 0.102mm/s|
|Micro surgery (ICSI) 8 - 80 Hz curve 0.051mm/s|
Passive damping systems work well at relatively high frequencies (> 50Hz) but fail at low frequencies where building vibrations occur. Passive systems have their resonance frequency there and amplify the vibrations instead of damping it in that region.
