Minus K Technology

Laser Interferometer Vibration Isolation Offering Class 100 cleanroom-compatibility, MK26 utilizes Minus K® negative-stiffness vibration isolators and comes with 30 x 36 in. or 36 x 48 in. tabletop in honeycomb or composite construction. Unit can be customized for various applications where external vibrations would adversely affect operation of sensitive equipment. Adjusted to ½ Hz natural frequency, workstation achieves 93% isolation efficiency at 2 Hz, 99% at 5 Hz, and 99.7% at 10 Hz.

Available in two versions, both can deliver a vertical natural frequency of 0.5 Hz or less, which can be achieved over the entire load range. The isolator is completely passive, using no air or electricity, and can be combined into multi-isolator systems to support heavier payloads while taking up very little room itself (4.75” wide x 4.75” deep x 7” high). Can be placed inside OEM equipment as needed, and can be customized to be cleanroom or vacuum compatible. Minus K Technology, Inc.

The compact, high-capacity, low-frequency LC-4 negative-stiffness isolator is designed to support heavy payloads while reducing low-frequency vibrations.
