Features

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.

VIB320 Isolators Featured in VIP Vibration Isolation Platform

Newport VIP320 general purpose and VIP3200 microscope platforms are compact, effective and easy-to-use platforms that significantly reduces vibrations from disturbing sensitive instruments such as microscopes, inspection or analysis equipment.

Patented Mechanical Isolation

VIB320 isolators are Newport's patented mechanical isolators using VIBe™ technology that are maintenance-free and user configurable. Featuring great robustness for tough environment, quicker settling time than pneumatic isolators and solid performance for vibration isolation, the VIB320 isolators are very popular among microscopy, precision measurement and inspection, and other sensitive applications.

Proper Loading

Each of the VIBe™ isolators in the platform needs to be properly loaded in order to achieve maximized vibration isolation performance. A special gap tool is shipped with the platform to verify the proper loading of the isolators. This gap tool measures 0.56 inch wide by 0.1 inch thick and it is used to determine that the gap in the isolator is more than 0.1 inch but less than 0.56 inch. If the gap is larger than 0.56 inch, the bearing does not have enough weight on it. Conversely, if the gap is smaller than 0.1 inch, it is overloaded.
