Dual Stiffness Isolation Mount suits moving load applications.

Press Release Summary:




Offering alternative to active vibration isolation systems, Vibralevel DSM provides both active damping and vibration isolation. Unit eliminates platform tilt by activating stiff mode when load undergoes aggressive move. On signal from machine controller, mount transitions from softer vibration isolation system to stiffer support platform within 500 ms. When move is complete, system reverts to soft mode, providing vibration isolation required for accurate placement or inspection.

Dual Stiffness Isolation Mounts Provide Both Active Damping of Shifting Loads and Vibration Isolation for Accurate Placement



BOSTON, MA — Kinetic Systems introduces a new concept in vibration isolation for moving load applications — the Vibralevel DSM Dual Stiffness Isolation Mount.  Providing the optimal combination of damping and vibration isolation, the Vibralevel DSM is a cost-effective alternative to active vibration isolation systems.



Designed primarily for applications where a moving load is supported on vibration isolation mounts, the Vibralevel DSM virtually eliminates platform tilt by activating the “stiff” mode when a load undergoes an aggressive move.  On a signal from your machine controller, it transitions from a softer vibration isolation system to a stiffer support platform within 500 milliseconds.  Upon receipt of a signal such as “servo-in-position” when the move is complete, the system reverts to “soft” mode, providing the vibration isolation required for accurate placement or inspection. The system will recover within 500 milliseconds since there is less platform displacement.



The Vibralevel DSM is ideal for applications involving both shifting loads and the need for pinpoint positioning applications such as large coordinate measuring machines, flat panel display inspection systems, and wafer inspection systems in which a sensor moves rapidly to specific locations for measurements.  It is also well-suited to die bonders, systems with robotic arms, and pick-and-place machines that must move items to precisely defined points.
