The New MK26 Series Vibration Control Workstation with more ergonomic comfort is designed specifically for ultra-low natural frequency applications. Kinetic Systems manufactures the system utilizing the Minus K patented negative stiffness vibration isolators in order to provide a compact, passive Vibration Isolation Workstation with ultra-low natural frequencies, higher internal structural frequencies, and excellent vertical and horizontal isolation efficiencies. The MK26 has also been upgraded to provide much better user comfort and additional leg space.
The Minus K vertical isolator uses a stiff spring and negative-stiffness mechanism to achieve a low net vertical stiffness without affecting the static load supporting capability. Horizontal vibration isolation is provided by beam columns connected in series with the vertical-motion isolator. Adjusted to a 1/2 Hz natural frequency, the workstation achieves 93% isolation efficiency at 2 Hz, 99% at 5 Hz and 99.7% at 10 Hz.
The MK26 Series can be configured for a wide variety of applications and customized with most of our vibration isolation workstation accessories.
Typical Vibration Control Applications for the MK26 Vibration Isolation Workstation
The MK26 Series offers the ultimate performance for a wide range of instruments, such as analytical balances, cell injection, confocal microscopes, patch clamping, optical microscopes, wafer probing, sensor calibration atomic force microscopes and other sensitive equipment in fields such as semiconductor processing, telecommunications, aerospace engineering, and medical research.
