The New MK52 Series Vibration Control Optical Table with more ergonomic comfort is designed specifically for ultra-low natural frequency applications. The system utilizes Minus K's patented negative stiffness vibration isolators to provide a compact, passive optical table with ultra-low natural frequencies, higher internal structural frequencies, and excellent vertical and horizontal isolation efficiencies.
The premier choice for large applications requiring high resolution such as: Raman spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy (AFM), AFM-Raman integration, and micro hardness testing.
The MK52 Series can be configured for a wide variety of applications and customized with most of our vibration isolation workstation accessories.
- Ultra-Low Natural Frequencies
- Vibradamped Frame
- Customizable Accessories
- No Air Supply Needed - Easy to Use
- Choice of Tabletops
- Ergonomic Styling
Table top options include Granite, Steel, Composite & Honeycomb.
The MinusK 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 about 93% isolation efficiency at 2 Hz, 99% at 5 Hz and 99.7% at 10 Hz.
The MK52 Series optical table can be designed for a wide variety of applications and customized with auxiliary work surfaces, enclosures, shelves, seismic restraints, retractable casters, and many other options.
