Kinetic Systems Intros Vibration Isolating Workstation
Vibration-isolating workstation.
Boston, MA — A new ultra-low-frequency Vibration-Isolation Workstation for lighter loads has been introduced by Kinetic Systems, Inc. (KSI). Designated the 2800 Series LLHP, this new workstation is designed to meet the exacting vibration-isolation requirements of sensitive equipment weighing in the 100-pound range (200 pounds max.). The new workstation incorporates automatic leveling and low natural frequencies.

The company uses its proprietary trifilar pendulum mounts and Active-Air suspension to provide exceptional horizontal axis vibration isolation that outperforms other mechanical systems, and a high level of vertical axis isolation.

The 2800 Series tabletop is 30-in. square, 2-in. thick, and can be constructed of lightweight aluminum extruded core or a variety of composite cores. Surfaces are available with or without mounting holes.

The compact, ergonomic design of the 2800 Series incorporates automatic leveling and low natural frequencies (1.1Hz along horizontal axis and 1.4Hz along vertical axis). The workstation can achieve vertical isolation efficiency of 96 percent and horizontal isolation efficiency of 97 percent (at 10Hz and above).

Suitable for supporting atomic force microscopes, analytical balances, etc., the 2800 Series can be configured for Class 100 cleanroom compatibility and outfitted with a variety of accessories to increase the user's comfort and convenience — including padded armrests, overhead equipment shelves, monitor stands, outlet strips for lighting, etc. The workstations are proven performers in applications such as semiconductor processing, telecommunications, aerospace engineering, and medical research.
