Minus K Technology, a leading manufacturer of vibration
has partnered with Kinetic Systems, Inc in designing a
new, versatile, ultra-low
natural frequency optical table isolation system.
The MK52 negative-stiffness optical table
achieves 0.5 Hz or lower vertical and
horizontal natural frequencies without limiting its ability to
support static loads.
When adjusted to a 0.5 Hz natural frequency, the MK52 achieves
efficiency at 2 Hz, 99% at 5 Hz, and 99.7% at 10 Hz.
New MK52 Negative-Stiffness Optical -
The MK52 Optical Vibration Isolation Table can be
configured for a wide variety
of locations and applications — wherever external vibrations can
affect the operation of sensitive equipment. Ultra-low natural
internal structural frequencies, and excellent vertical and
efficiencies make the system well-suited to applications such as
balances, cell injection, confocal microscopes, patch clamping,
microscopes, wafer probing, sensor calibration, and
laser applications in fields such as semiconductor
processing, telecommunications, and medical research.
and neuroscience to aerospace, semiconductors, and
The MK52 is also ideal for applications requiring high
resolution, such as Raman
spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy (AFM), AFM-Raman
micro hardness testing. They are an OEM supplier to leading
manufactures of SPMs,
microhardness testers and other sensitive instruments
