Warsash Scientific has released Kinetic System’s redesigned versatile ultra-low-natural-frequency vibration isolation workstation.
The new ergonomic MK26 workstation achieves low net vertical stiffness without affecting its capability to support static loads, with help of its unique Minus K stiff spring and negative-stiffness mechanism.
Adjusted to a ½Hz natural frequency, the MK26 achieves 93% isolation efficiency at 2Hz, 99% at 5Hz, and 99.7% at 10Hz.
While improving user comfort and leg space, the MK26 workstation can be configured for a wide variety of locations and applications.
Ultra-low natural frequencies, high internal structural frequencies, and vertical and horizontal isolation efficiencies are properties useful for applications such as analytical balances, cell injection, confocal microscopes, patch clamping, optical microscopes, wafer probing, sensor calibration, and atomic force microscopes in fields such as semiconductor processing, telecommunications, aerospace engineering, and medical research.
The MK26 is available with a Faraday Cage to protect sensitive operations from electromagnetic interference or with a variety of other tabletop enclosures to protect against harsh manufacturing environments.
Ergonomic options are also available and include guard rails, padded armrests, overhead equipment shelves, and monitor stands to name a few.
Class 100 clean room compatible with optional class 10 compatibility, the MK26 is available with two tabletop sizes (30” x 36” and 36” x 48”) and up to 650 pounds (295Kg) gross load capacity.
The tabletop can be either lightweight honeycomb or composite construction.
