Inglewood, CA, May 07, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- Minus K Technology, a leading manufacturer of passive vibration isolation products, has just released its latest Negative-Stiffness vibration isolation platform – the ultra-thin, low-height model CT-2 passive isolator at just 2-1/2 inches in height, delivering 1/2 Hz vertical natural frequency, and 1-1/2 Hz horizontal natural frequency – considerably more low-frequency vibration isolation performance compared to air tables and active systems.
The new CT-2 isolator comes in several capacity ranges to match vibration-sensitive instruments such as SPMs (AFMs, STMs, etc.), micro-hardness testers, profilers, interferometers, electron microscopes, or other imaging systems, for weight loads from 20 to 250 lbs.
Minus K's Negative-Stiffness isolator achieves approximately 93 percent isolation efficiency at 2 Hz; 99 percent at 5 Hz; and 99.7 percent at 10 Hz. As with all Minus K isolators, the CT-2 is completely passive and do not require electricity or compressed air.
