Lightweight Benchtop Vibration Isolation
BOSTON, MA - An exciting, new lightweight benchtop vibration isolation system has been introduced by Kinetic Systems, Inc. Specifically designed for portability, the ELpF can be easily repositioned on the benchtop, even with a load and in float. Its unique, self-contained design provides this without causing damage to the vibration isolators.
An economical alternative to heavyweight models, the Ergonomic Low-Profile-Format platform provides vibration isolation for sensitive devices. It features a load capacity of 100 or 300 lbs. in a very lightweight, ergonomic system.
The platform has a low profile (only 3" high nom.), uses a small tabletop (16" x 19" standard), and weighs 40 lbs., making it very portable. Ergonomic features include gauges tilted upward for easier viewing and recessed handles for easy carrying.
Designed for use in laboratories and Class 100 cleanrooms, the ELpF platform is ideal for supporting atomic force microscopes, microhardness testers, analytical balances, profilometers, audio equipment, and other equipment.
Self-leveling and active-air isolation give the platform low natural frequencies (1.75 Hz vertical, 2.0 Hz horizontal) and typical isolation efficiencies of 95% (vertical) and 92% (horizontal) at 10 Hz.
Other tabletop sizes can be customized per specifications. The top, which can be ordered with or without mounting holes, can be aluminum plate, ferromagnetic stainless steel, plastic laminate, or anti-static laminate.
Kinetic Systems, Inc., is a leader in the design, manufacture, and marketing of vibration isolation equipment, optical tables, and related components used in a wide range of industries worldwide, including research and development, quality control, laboratories, and semiconductor manufacturing.
