Vibration-Free Platform

Vibration-Free Platform
  • Portable low-profile design allows for multiple vibration-free work stations on a single bench
  • Pneumatic vibration-isolation mounts dampen up to 90% of building vibration, eliminate operator fatigue and nausea during microscope operations
  • Also isolates vibration-producing equipment from the work surface
  • Easy to set up and relocate

  • Biological Sample Manipulation
  • Confocal Microscopy
Manufacturers who routinely engage in high-magnification operations know there's more than one cause of motion sickness. Shaky work surfaces not only compromise precision and accuracy—they also literally make you sick!

A Low-Profile, Steady Work Surface Wherever You Need It
Terra's portable, economical Vibration-Free Platform cures the shakes by providing benchtop vibration isolation in both the vertical and horizontal directions.

Four pneumatic all-axis isolators act as highly stable air springs that isolate up to 90% of typical building vibrations (see efficiency curves, at right). With the help of built-in pressure regulators, this platform maintains a fixed, controlled pressure with maximum loads up to 213 lbs. (97 kg.)

Removable incremental plate weights attached beneath the platform surface allow you to adjust the net load to provide optimal dampening for the process equipment with which you are working. This versatility, and the low-profile design, makes this platform ideal for applications that involve a wide range of close-tolerance equipment.

Compact Design Saves Space—and Money!
Its compact, portable size offers additional benefits. It lets you bring a steady surface to close-tolerance operations wherever they crop up, eliminating the need either to relocate heavy vibration-free tables or simply to forego a dampened surface (and risk the consequences!).

Further, because vibration-free tables can accommodate only one work station, large-scale productions often require the purchase of several such units. This low-cost platform offers an alternative to this expensive arrangement. You can place several of these units on a single bench, thereby establishing multiple vibration-free work stations while using very little space.

For optimal particle control, select a platform with an UltraClean™ finish stainless steel construction. The Vibration-Free Platform is easy to operate and requires little or no attention after the initial set-up. No special tools or mounting hardware is necessary. The platform comes completely assembled and ready for operation.
