Kinetic Systems celebrates 50 years in the vibration control business

MK52 Negative-Stiffness Optical Table Isolation SystemBack in 1968 a new company was incorporated in Boston…

Kinetic Systems.

For fifty years the company has been at the forefront of vibration isolation and control, developing many state-of-the-art technologies used in vibration isolation, damping, and structural design thanks to continuous research into the effects of vibration on equipment and structures.

Kinetic Systems is a trusted name in academic, industrial, and government research facilities worldwide. The company offers the best in advanced vibration isolation and optical tables for metrology, interferometry, laser research, semiconductor manufacturing, and virtually any other application where external vibrations can adversely affect the operation of precision equipment.

If you have a vibration isolation problem then please contact us for further information.

 


Halcyonics range of active vibration isolation systems by Accurion now available through Elliot Scientific

For over 20 years the Halcyonics brand name has been associated with market-leading Active Vibration Isolation solutions.

Designed and manufactured by Accurion, the company’s portfolio of platforms, workstations and modular support units can be found in labs throughout Europe and beyond. Now, Elliot Scientific brings this popular anti-vibration product range to the fore in the UK and Ireland.

Applications that can benefit from a Halcyonics system include: scanning probe microscopy, inverted optical microscopy, confocal microscopy, profilometry, nanoindentation, patch-clamp setups, laser experiments, ultra-precise weighing, micromanipulation such as IVF, Hi-Fi turntables and many more.

Accurion offer Benchtop, Workstation, and Heavy-duty Halcyonics systems to provide active electronic vibration isolation for sensitive equipment. This can range from a small instrument to a large apparatus that might weigh hundreds of kilos.

For more information and a video demo visit our Accurion pages, or contact us.

New Opto-Mechanics Catalogue for 2013

A new Elliot Scientific Opto-Mechanics Catalogue has been released for 2013. With more than 450 pages, the comprehensive 14Mb PDF is downloadable from links on the Elliot Scientific website or can be read online at Issuu. The catalogue includes details and drawings of all our Mounts, Flexures, Stages, and Slides,  plus information on accessories, hardware for optical tables, custom designs and specialist systems.

Also released are four updated ‘mini-catalogues’ extracted from the main publication that detail the XYZ Flexure Stages, Miniature Positioners, Fibre Launch Systems and Lab Essentials ranges. These can also be downloaded from their relevant pages by clicking on the links above, or from various pages dotted around our website or read online at Issuu along with our other publications.

And if you missed any of our e-newsletters last year, we have compiled them into a handy annual (with built-in web links) that you can also download or read online at Issuu.

Alternatively, contact us and we can email you the PDF of choice.


Honeywell Sperian Laser Barrier System for Optical Tables is first of its kind

The new Laser-Gard Barrier System, from Honeywell Sperian, is the first of its kind in the industry. The flexible, modular design offers a unique and customisable way to securely enclose a laser set-up on an optical table.

Laser-Gard significantly reduces direct and indirect laser hazard exposure while allowing cable access around the entire perimeter of the optical table.

A perimeter attachment system and a unique adjustable panel provides a good fit for variety of table sizes and configurations.  Easy to install, remove and transport using basic tools, Laser-Gard saves time and effort if you need to adjust the experiment, and saves space by eliminating the need to use table holes.

Contact us for more information.

 


Vibration Isolation System Utilises ‘Negative-Stiffness’ Technology

MK52 Negative-Stiffness Optical Table Isolation System

Anti-vibration leaders Kinetic Systems of Boston offer versatile, ultra-low-natural-frequency optical table isolation support systems to researchers in the UK and Ireland. Available only through Elliot Scientific, the MK52 optical table isolation support system achieves low net vertical natural frequency without limiting its ability to support static loads due to its unique Minus K® negative-stiffness technology.

Horizontal isolation is provided by beam columns connected in series with the vertical-motion isolator. When adjusted to a ½ Hz natural frequency, the MK52 achieves 93% isolation efficiency at 2 Hz, 99% at 5 Hz, and 99.7% at 10 Hz.

MK52 Negative-Stiffness Optical Table Isolation System

The MK52 support system can be configured for a wide variety of locations and applications – wherever external vibrations can adversely affect the operation of sensitive equipment. Ultra-low natural frequencies, high internal structural frequencies, and excellent vertical and horizontal isolation efficiencies make the system well-suited to applications such as analytical balances, cell injection, confocal microscopes, patch clamping, optical microscopes, wafer probing, sensor calibration, and laser applications in fields such as semiconductor processing, telecommunications, aerospace engineering and medical research.

The MK52 is also ideal for applications requiring high resolution, such as Raman spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy (AFM), AFM-Raman integration and micro-hardness testing.
