Accurion’s active vibration
isolation systems available from Scitech are sophisticated vibration reduction
systems based on state-of-the-art engineering methods. This engineering
know-how is also available for analysing vibration problems and creating
Active vibration isolation is
the active compensation of disturbing vibrations by generating a counterforce. Vibrations
have become a major problem ever since high-resolution measurements and
manufacturing techniques reached nanometer scales.
Typical sources of disturbing
vibrations include building and floor vibrations, acoustic vibrations and motorised
equipment and machinery. Effective elimination of disturbing vibrations can be
the key to precise and repeatable results, which can be achieved by isolating
the application from the vibration source.
Various products are available for
vibration isolation ranging from compact high-performance isolators for small
to mid-size applications such as the i4 series and nano series to ergonomic
laboratory tables with integrated active isolation system such as the
workstation and IVF series. Acoustic enclosures, heavy load isolation solutions
and custom design solutions are also available.
Applications for Accurion’s active
vibration isolation systems include confocal microscopy, digital holography,
ellipsometry, fluorescence microscopy, inverted microscopy, Langmuir-Blodgett
trough, laser scanning microscopy, nanoindentation, optical 3D measurement,
patch clamping, profilometry, Raman microscopy, scanning electron microscopy,
scanning probe microscopy, spectrometry and tensiometry.
