Minus K Technology

Minus K offers several standard and custom vibration isolation products.

Standard Vibration Isolation Products

LC-4 isolators

NEW LC-4 Ultra Compact Vibration Isolators

Minus K's new LC-4 is an ultra compact, low-frequency negative-stiffness isolator. It comes in two configurations, our low horizontal performance of 1.5 Hz horizontal or the ultra low frequency 0.5 Hz horizontal. Both configurations offer our signature 0.5 Hz vertical natural frequency.

The LC-4 isolators can be combined into multi isolator systems to support heavier payloads while taking up very little room themselves. The isolators are passive, manually-adjustable and require no air or electricity.

CM-1 Compact Large Capacity Vibration Isolator

NEW CM-1 Compact Large Capacity Vibration Isolation

The new CM-1 is a compact high capacity, low-frequency negative-stiffness isolator. As with all Minus K isolators, they are completely passive and use no air or electricity. The isolators can be combined into multi isolator systems to support heavy payloads while taking up very little room themselves.

The CM-1 isolators can be placed on pedestals to bring them to an appropriate height to retrofit your existing air table, enabling you to keep your existing table top and achieve much better isolation.

 Vibration Isolation Products From Minus K


Of note, MinusK Company products use a "passive" system, verses an "active" vibration system. Often associated with the perceived need, but not necessarily required as part of the solution and not part of our system are: Mounts, rubber pads, dampers, damping or dampening equipment, materials and techniques.

The Minus K® products, formerly sold under the trade name Nano-K®, represent an important enabling technology. By reducing building and floor vibrations to unprecedented levels these systems enable vibration sensitive instruments and equipment to perform at unprecedented levels. They are used in a broad spectrum of applications including nanotechnology, biological sciences, semiconductors, materials research, zero-g simulation of spacecraft, and high-end audio. Minus K® is an OEM supplier to leading manufactures of scanning probe microscopes, micro-hardness testers and other vibration-sensitive instruments and equipment. Minus K® customers include private companies and more than 300 leading universities and government laboratories in 50 countries.
