Features

Easy Field Upgrade

As your application requirements become more stringent, the Upgradeable SmartTable can be field upgraded to Hybrid Damped Top Performance SmartTable performance levels by installing an IQ-300-UG upgrade kit. Each upgrade kit includes two active IQ dampers, ST-300 controller and instruction manuals to easily convert your passively damped optical table into the best performance optical table in the market. There is no need to dismantle your experiment in order to upgrade the table. Once upgraded, the table will provide a dramatically quieter table surface, resulting in high quality imaging, improved long term stability, faster settling times and the ability to make measurements that previously required the quietest lab environments.

High Precision Tunable Dampers

Our optical tables have been using tunable mass dampers for decades and our damper designs have evolved over the years. The latest version of the design eliminates the use of oil, and use a proprietary mass-spring mechanism to allow for better damping performance, and more precise and easier tuning to the exact frequency needed to damp the resonance. This patented design (US patent 8857585) further improves damping performance by 3x to 5x compared to the previous generation design, which was already superior than competitor's broadband dampers. The precisely tuned dampers work from as low as 25 Hz and go all the way up to 525 Hz, creating opportunity for optimum damping on larger optical tables, the resonances of which often fall outside of competitor's broadband frequency range. Once tuned at factory the dampers are locked securely and the frequency would not shift during shipping of the table.

Super Rigid Trussed Honeycomb Core Design

Newport innovated the trussed core design to maximize the optical table’s rigidity to weight ratio. An extra steel member is bridged across the center of the honeycomb cell to significantly stiffen the cell with minimal increase in weight. This increases both static and dynamic rigidity. A highly rigid platform eliminates errors caused by relative motion between optical components in the beam path.

Vertically Bonded Triple Core Interface

All Newport tables are vertically bonded along the height of the honeycomb core. Most other manufacturers forego this extra step because of added expense and time required to apply adhesive to each individual core member. Vertical bonding adds constrained layer damping effects into the core, while maximizing the table’s rigidity-to-weight ratio. The trussed core design enables a triple core interface at each honeycomb cell. Whereas open core designs only have two structural members at each interface, the Newport table has three offering a 50% increase in local rigidity. The three sheets are fully bonded for the full table height producing greater stiffness.

Individually Sealed Mounting Holes

All of our optical breadboards and tables are with individually sealed mounting holes. Those mounting holes feature 19 mm screw depth and in contrast to some of the other products in the market that has channel for a row of holes or just a polymeric film, Newport's individually sealed holes are more reliable and easier to clean. This is because we believe in the integrity of the product - especially the core. When dust and liquids go into your optical breadboard and table, it may have a long term effect on the damping performance of the product and make the product degrade over time. A good quality breadboard and table lasts long time - tens of years and more. It's a good investment for a product with sealed mounting holes.

Precision Grid of Tapped, Countersunk & Deburred Mounting Holes

The 1/4-20 or M6 tapped mounting holes are countersunk and deburred. This ensures easy thread engagement while eliminating contamination problems. The mounting holes are located on a 1 in. or 25 mm grid with standard grid markings for easy and repeatable component placement.

Highly Damped Side Panels

Side panels for optical tables are more than just covers. They should contribute to the overall damping performance of the table. Our optical tables use highly damped composite wood as side panels to help eliminate vibrations from the side. Composite wood has a much better damping performance than steel which has a high elasticity and tends to allow vibration or ringing. Materials with low elasticity such as wood tend to dampen vibration and ringing. For example, home stereo speakers are typically enclosed by composite wood to damp the acoustic vibrations.

Unique Pressure Bonding Process Ensures Superior Flatness

Metrology quality steel assembly platens are used to ensure the superior flatness of our optical tables. The platen supports the top surface of the table during the assembly and bonding process and imprints the top surface with the same flatness characteristics. Our platens are the largest and flattest in the industry. We use gravity pressure bonding to apply constant pressure across the optical table during the bonding process ensuring that the top surface conforms to the platen flatness.
