Features

VIBe™ Mechanical Vibration Isolation Technology

The patented mechanical isolation technology features six degree of freedom isolator design to work within a defined range of weight under which the isolators deflect or compress. The amount of deflection is a function of the payload on each isolator. Vertical and horizontal vibration is effectively attenuated and your precision application is isolated from the vibration. It is a great alternative solution for applications that are not suitable for pneumatic isolation.

Superior Mechanical Design Ensures Vibration Isolation Performance

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.

Super Compact Design

The VIP100 platform is designed specifically for applications that require small footprint. The VIB100 isolators used to support the aluminum plate are 1 inch diameter, and the aluminum plate sizes are from as compact as 8 in. x 8 in. to accommodate for the most tight spaces in OEM and research applications.
