Significanlty less magnetic 300 austenitic stainless steel and aluminum system
With more than 40 years of experience in custom vibration control products, Newport's capabilities in less magnetic tables are extensive.
Facesheets and honeycomb of less magnetic tables and breadboards can be produced from any combination of significantly less magnetic material, most regularly:
Newport procures whatever unique special material required, regularly purchasing different:
To minimize lead time of common specials features Newport stocks these most regularly used unique special material:
Tuned Mass Damper Material
Each Tuned Mass Damper includes (2) 4.0" x 4.5" x 0.044" thick magnetic carbon steel springs, which are nearly completely enclosed in aluminum damper housing and whose material (properties) must remain magnetic carbon steel and whose weight is 0.20 kg [0.44 lb] per damper.
300 stainless steel honeycomb, except for thin metal material, is same as catalog plated carbon steel and catalog 316 stainless steel (for RPR-N) honeycomb with coiled thin metal formed and nodes bonded by Newport producing orthogonally orientated cells. Aluminum honeycomb is purchased as expanded sheets and has diagonally orientated cells.

You can also learn more about less magnetic material. Below is some information and links discribing less magnetic superiority of 316 stainless steel over 304 stainless steel."After substantial cold working Grade 304 may exhibit quite strong response to a magnet, whereas Grades 310 and 316 will in most instances still be almost totally non-responsive." (Source )"While 304 can become significantly attracted to a magnet after being cold worked, grade 316 is almost always virtually totally non-responsive." (Source )"For certain grades such as Types 302 and 304, the increase in magnetic permeability can be appreciable, resulting in these grades being weakly ferromagnetic in the heavily cold-worked state."
