Minus K Technology

Laser Interferometer Vibration IsolationThe compact, high-capacity CM-1 low-frequency negative-stiffness isolator is designed to support heavy payloads while reducing low-frequency vibrations. Minus K Technology offers the customizable isolator in several capacity ranges for weight loads from 50 to 800 lbs to match vibration sensitive instruments such as scanning probe microscopy systems, microhardness testers, profilers, interferometers, electron microscopes, or other imaging systems. The unit can deliver a vertical natural frequency of 1/2 Hz or less over the entire range.

Horizontal natural frequency is load dependant, with 1/2 Hz or less being achievable at or near the nominal load. Completely passive, the isolator uses no air or electricity. It can be made cleanroom and vacuum compatible, and several units can be combined into a multiisolator ssytem to support heavy payloads.
