Heavy Load Vibration Isolation
Specialized for Equipment with a mass above 600 kg (1.320 lbs)
Halcyonics_Sandwich - Platforms for heavy loads
Accurions Halcyonics_Sandwich systems, featuring compact dimensions and excellent isolation performance, set the standards on the market for isolation platforms for medium-heavy to heavy applications. The standard platform is exceptionally compact (1000 mm x 800 mm – 39.8 x 31.5 in.), only 130 mm (5.1 in.) high, yet supports up to 1,200 kg (2,650 lbs), depending on the version. For smaller applications, Halcyonics also offers a smaller standard version measuring 800 x 800 mm (31.5 x 31.5 in.). Sandwich platforms are the ideal solution for vibration isolation of scanning electron microscopes (SEM). All over the globe, numerous Halcyonics platforms are currently used together with the most diverse SEMs supplied by the manufacturers Hitachi, Carl Zeiss, Jeol, Tescan and more. This is why Halcyonics has many years of experience in technical consultation, installation and commissioning of sophisticated active vibration isolation systems.
A major advantage of the active Halcyonics platforms is that there is no inherent natural low-frequency resonance, which is responsible for problems encountered with passive vibration isolation systems in low-frequency ranges below 5 Hz. The active vibration isolation of Sandwich platforms starts right at 1 Hz and, above 10 Hz, attains more than 35 dB (98.2%).
Halcyonics_Duo – modular, heavy-duty active vibration isolation elements
The Duo elements have been engineered as a modular system to meet the needs of the most diverse applications. Halcyonics_Duo systems can be used in conjunction with steel honeycomb-structured platforms, and, using the available adapter plates, can alternatively be installed directly below the frame of many scanning electron microscopes (e.g., Carl Zeiss Supra). The basic configuration of the Duo consists of two elements; combinations of 3, 4 or more elements can be readily implemented. A major advantage of the active Duo system is that there is no inherent natural low-frequency resonance, which is responsible for problems encountered with passive vibration isolation systems in low-frequency ranges below 5 Hz. The active vibration isolation of Halcyonics_Duo starts right at 1 Hz and, above 10 Hz, attains more than 35 dB (98.2 %).
Features & Benefits
- Modular design, two different standard sizes and five different load ranges available
- AC power from an electrical outlet is sufficient; no compressed air supply is needed
- Provides better vibration isolation (> 98.22% isolation above 10 Hz) than is normally possible with complicated, large passive floor platforms
- No natural low-frequency resonance; as a result, excellent vibration characteristics also in frequency ranges below 5 Hz
- Active isolation in all six degrees of freedom
