Pneumatic Vibration Isolation Optical Table

The Pneumatic Vibration Isolation Optical Table includes a honeycomb core structure breadboard as standard. The ultra-thin porous quasi-laminar flow damping element with diffuser is further integrated with compound rubber to ensure excellent vibration isolation and stability. This table features automatic levelling and the pneumatic parts are made by FESTO, Germany. This table requires a compressed air source.

When would MCI’s Pneumatic Vibration Isolation Optical Table be the ideal solution?
  • MCI’s Pneumatic Vibration Isolation Optical Tables are the perfect working platforms for high precision optical microscopy and imaging as well as patch clamp experiments
  •  When you require automatic, high accuracy self-levelling on the pneumatic isolators
  • When you can’t compromise on the quality of the optical breadboard
What is the functional damping principle?
MCI’s Pneumatic Vibration Isolation Optical Table series employs three levels of vibration isolation:
  • The rigid and solid-support of the MCI stainless steel optical table frame serves as the first level of damping
  • Ultra-thin pneumatic piston chambers integrated with porous quasi-laminar flow damping with diffuser. This results in excellent damping of small vibrations and fast response times.
  • The high-density honeycomb structure of our precision-engineered optical breadboard isolates surfaces on the breadboard from vibrations, whilst maintaining rigidity and surface flatness
