Features and Benefits

Vibration-Free Platform

Vibration-Free Platform

benchtop passive damped Pneumatic Vibration Isolation platform for microscope
  • 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 fatigueand nausea during microscope operations
  • Also isolates vibration-producing equipment from the work surface
  • Easy to set up and relocate

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!

If high-magnification equipment enlarges the sight of microscopic content, then it also enlarges the sight of any movement within the scope of the viewing lens. Operating a microscope isn’t a motionless process—natural bumps from foot traffic, air control systems, or moving materials across a surface cause slides to shake and create a distracting obstacle for precise observations. Vibrations can slow or even compromise detail-oriented operations.

A vibration-free platform can reduce the effects of environmental disturbance and provide a steady surface. The vibration-free platform serves as a buffer between the magnification equipment and the surface it rests upon. It isolates the equipment by dampening vibrations to mitigate nausea and motion sickness for the operator, to keep employees healthy and productive, to moderate fatigue and to increase efficiency of the task at hand.

Vibration-free platforms also protect equipment. Unexpected motion can misalign delicate instruments. If left on a non-isolated surface, sensitive analytical equipment could consistently recalibrate to compensate for the motion, preventing accurate data collection. For optimal control and the smoothest magnified observations, ensure stability with a vibration-free platform.

A Low-Profile, Steady Work Surface Wherever You Need It
VIbration Isolation Frequency Chart

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.

Pneumatic Passive Vibration Isolation Platform

Cleanroom vibration isolation platforms eliminates platform vibration for enhanced clarity.

Pneumatic Mounts and Heavy Weight Minimize Vibration

Compact elastomer air mounts on each corner allow for adjustable stiffness to control the natural frequency and isolate vibration. Heavy-duty powder-coated metal plates mounted underneath add 190+ lbs to the system, further lowering the natural frequency to minimize vibration.

Enhanced Clarity Eliminates Operator Fatigue and Nausea

Instrument isolation platform and table systems enhance microscope image clarity and eliminates operator fatigue and nausea.

Compact Low Profile Design

Passive vibration isolation platform systems enhance the performance of precision tabletop equipment for applications, such as microscopes, microhardness testers, analytical balances, profilometers, and other preceision measuring and testing equipment.

Vibration Free Platform Perfect for Microscopes

Terra's anti vibration platform is large enough to support most larger microscopes along with their support equipment. The pneumatic vibration isolators have a low natural frequency of 2-4Hz which effectively isolates out 90% of building vibrations.
