Scitech announces the launch of active vibration isolation systems from Accurion.

Active vibration isolation is described as the active compensation of disturbing vibrations by generating a counterforce. With high-resolution measurements and manufacturing techniques reaching nanometer scales, vibrations have become a major problem. Achieving precise and repeatable results, therefore, depends on the effective elimination of disturbing vibrations; this can be done by isolating the application from a vibration source.

Typical sources of disturbing vibrations include building and floor vibrations; acoustic vibrations; and motorised equipment and machinery.

Accurion offers multiple solutions for active vibration isolation in small as well as large scale instrumentation.

These include Halcyonics i4 flat bench top isolation system designed for small and lightweight applications; Halcyonics Vario consisting of two modular isolation elements and control unit with automatic load adjustment; Halcyonics Vario Basic featuring two of four modular isolation elements and control unit with manual load adjustment; Halcyonics Workstation i4 incorporating an ergonomic laboratory table with integrated i4; Halcyonics Workstation Vario featuring an ergonomic laboratory table with integrated Vario system; Halcyonics Sandwich with a heavy load isolation platform; Halcyonics Duo featuring heavy load isolation elements; and Halcyonics Acoustic Enclosure Series for airborne noise isolation.

Key features of Accurion’s active vibration isolation systems include zero natural low frequency resonance resulting in excellent vibration performance even in low frequency range; extremely short settling time of only 0.3s; active bandwidth 0.6/1Hz to 200Hz (beyond passive isolation); active vibration isolation in six degrees of freedom; instantaneous generation of a counterforce to compensate vibrations ensuring real active vibration isolation; compact design and low installation effort; high position stability; no compressed air required; wide range of standard versions and customisation available; and push button solution for ease of use.

Accurion’s active vibration isolation systems offer several benefits including excellent performance even under severe environmental conditions; ability to dampen building vibrations; rapid system setup; qualified service for standard and customised solutions by factory trained personnel; and 2-year guarantee.

Applications include profilometer; ultra-precise scales; sensitive laser setups; small SEMs; ultra microtom; ellipsometer; nanointender; inverse microscopy with or without AFM head; patch-clamp setups; CLSLM/LSCM; and NSOM/SNOM.
