Passive damping mechanism to isolate the microscope from vibrations
The AVT Anti Vibration Table consists of a sturdy frame made from high-quality stainless steel, which makes it easy to clean and maintain. The tabletop is made of stainless steel with glass on both sides. In the middle of the tabletop is the anti-vibration platform, which houses the anti-vibration mechanism and it is floating on the AVT mechanism. The microscope is placed on the anti-vibration float.
The anti-vibration mechanism works as a passive damping device and only partially damps the vibration that is generated on the AVT platform itself. The vibrations are eliminated efficiently through an optimized choice of mass and support stiffness ensuring a passive dampening.
