New MK52 Series Vibration Control Optical Table from Minus K

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 Minus K 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 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.
