Superior Mechanical Design

VIBe™ technology works in horizontal direction by utilizing ball bearings sandwiched between precision raceways, forming the plane of isolation. The balls that displace between the raceways due to micro-vibrations are restored to the neutral position by gravity, which acts as a non-linear spring. Since the spring force (i.e., the restoring force) is non-linear, it is constant and independent of the frequency and amplitude of the input vibrations, meaning the balls’ oscillating motion has no “natural” frequency. Instead, the motion has an infinite number of frequencies, one for each increment of displacement, which makes the resonance between the two halves of the plane of isolation physically impossible. As a result, the isolator filters out a broad band of input vibration frequencies and ensures a constant level of vibration transmission reduction.
Vertical vibration isolation is addressed by the Newport's proprietary, nonlinear spring mechanism with near zero tangential stiffness for vibrations. The natural frequency of the spring remains relatively low and constant across a large range of spring compression, effectively isolating the vertical vibrations.

Standard and Adjustable Mounting Options

VIB100-BA-STD standard and VIB100-BA-ADJ adjustable mounting options are available for VIB100 isolators to be mounted to a tool frame or other supporting structure.

Vacuum Compatible Version

Vacuum compatible version (VIB100-XXXX-V) of VIB100 is available. Contact Newport Sales for more information regarding your applications!

Compact Vibration Isolation Platforms

VIB100 isolators are designed specifically for applications that require small footprint. VIP100 vibration isolation platform consisting of 0.5 in. thick aluminum top with threaded 1/4-20 or M6 mounting holes and 4 of the VIB100 isolators accommodate the most tight spaces in OEM and research applications.
