Vibration Isolator Selection Guide

Newport's broad offering of vibration isolation solutions includes active, passive, and elastomeric Vibration Isolators. Our S-2000 series pneumatic vibration isolator is the industry standard for vibration isolator performance and our broad offering of OEM vibration isolators are preferred by the world's leading semiconductor equipment, microscope and diagnostic instrument manufacturers. Our elastomeric vibration isolator solutions are preferred by the leading photovoltaic (PV) system integrators and metrology instrument manufacturers for their excellent balance of high load capacity, damping and vibration isolation performance.

We provide three application types for S-2000 Stabilizer™ Series vibration isolators: standard, cleanroom and non-magnetic to suit your various needs. With hybrid chamber design and laminar flow disks, the S-2000 vibration isolator provides you with industry leading vibration isolation performance, and is currently the one and only vibration isolator in the market that has an integrated, mechanical height adjustment system to allow improved table leveling, height control and compensation for non-level floors. For all S-2000 series vibration isolators we have also integrated built-in leveling indicators providing visual feedback ensuring the table is properly floating at the correct level.

Among our broad offerings of pneumatic vibration isolators there are also compact and OEM suitable I-500 series vibration isolator, economic LabLegs™ Air Mount Vibration Isolators and many others. Those vibration isolators use sealed air chamber to provide outstanding performance for your vibration isolation application.

Apart from pneumatic vibration isolator option, we provide mechanical, elastomeric vibration isolator and rigid table legs products. Check out the Vibration Control Playlist of our Newport YouTube Channel for a live demonstration of how our vibration isolation products work!
