Vibration Isolation Tutorial

Optical Table Frame Isolators

Thorlabs' optical table frame for 1.2 m x 2.5 m x 310 mm (4' x 8' x 12.2") optical tables has isolator mounting platforms in each of the interior four corners. These platforms are fitted with active self-leveling isolators that provide the highest level of isolation available in the optical table line of workstations.

Rigid support options that can be upgraded to have passive isolation are available with our optical table frames for 210 mm (8.3") thick optical tables.

Active Isolator Mount

Active Supports

  • Max Load Capacity: 5500 lbs (2500 kg)
  • Pneumatic Dual-Chamber Air Spring Damps Vertical Vibrations
  • Trifilar Suspension System Damps Horizontal Vibrations
  • Self-Leveling Valves with High Repeatability

Our Workstations equipped with active isolators provide the highest degree of vibration isolation available. Vertical damping is achieved by the use of a dual-chamber, damped pneumatic spring. The table is supported by the air pressure in these chambers. A piston, in contact with the bottom of the optical tabletop, is sealed to the upper chamber with a rolling rubber diaphragm, allowing virtually friction-free motion between piston and chamber. Floor or tabletop motion forces air to flow from one chamber to the other through a laminar flow damper. This restriction of airflow damps oscillatory motion between the floor and table, dramatically reducing settling time.

The volume ratio of the chambers has been optimized to minimize the resonant frequency of the table frame while maximizing the damping performance. Damping of horizontal vibrations is accomplished by supporting the pneumatic vertical isolator on a Trifilar suspension system. This innovative pendulum design uses gravity to provide the restoring force after horizontal disturbances. Horizontal oscillations at the system’s resonant frequency are damped by linking the base of the vertical isolator to the outer cylinder with an oil-free, vibration-absorbing damper. To allow for changes in load distribution, the active vibration isolation optical tabletop supports have a self-leveling system based on precision 3-way valves that do not compromise vertical isolation when the system is at rest. Because these valves are actuated by tabletop movement, the system returns to within ±0.5 mm (0.02") of its original level position after disturbances. These isolators require a constant supply of air, such as that provided by our compressor. Removing the air supply will disable the active isolation system, causing the optical table to rest securely on top of the legs.

Our active optical table frames not only provide the highest level of isolation, but by incorporating self-leveling valves, they are also ideal for applications where the load placed on the optical tabletop is constantly changing. Typical applications include holography, optical lithography, and high-power optical microscopy. In addition, the active isolation is often chosen when the surrounding environment is less than ideal since the active isolators provide a higher level of isolation from floor vibrations.

Sample configuration shown below with an optical table frame with active supports holding a 1.2 m x 2.5 m x 310 mm (4' x 8' x 12.2") optical table.
More frame, table, shelving, and accessory options are available below.

I have a question regarding attachable 19" Rack Chassis. If I would like to place some vibrating quipment in it, for example an air compressor with 19" rack formfactor, would the optical table still be sufficienly isolated from the vibrations of the compressor? Or is the attached Rack Chassis only suitable for non-vibrating equipment, such as drawers?
rcapehorn  (posted 2015-09-23 04:27:18.0)
Response from Rob at Thorlabs: Our Optical Table isolation frames are designed to isolate the working surface from sources of vibrations in the surrounding area including those transmitted onto the frame. We designed the mounting accessories for the frames so that a user could place vibrational sources, such as controllers with fans, near their experiments without disturbing the working surface itself. Therefore the system will still be isolated from a source of vibration mounted onto the rack mount, as long as it makes no contact with the table itself.

Optical Table Frame

  • Active-Air, Anti-Vibration Frame
  • 97% Damping of Vibrations @ 10 Hz
  • Isolators Require an External Source of Compressed Air
  • Easy to Relocate with Integrated Casters
  • Under Table Shelf Included: Max Load Capacity 100 kg (220 lbs)
  • Welded Steel Isolator Pairs (Minimal Assembly Required)
  • Isolator Load Capacity: 5500 lbs (2500 kg) Including Optical Table

This frame provides a compact, portable, and ergonomic workstation solution for optical tables. The active supports deliver our highest level of vibration isolation available, making this frame suitable for applications requiring sub-micron resolution. The isolators require a constant source of pressurized air, such as that provided by our compressor. In addition, this isolation system will adjust the pressure in each isolator to keep the optical table surface level, even when the distribution of weight on the optical tabletop is changed. Casters and a removable under table shelf are included.

Each optical table frame contains active supports in each leg that deliver our highest level of vibration isolation available, making these frames suitable for applications with sub-micron resolution. The isolators require a constant source of pressurized air, such as that provided by our compressor. In addition, this isolation system will adjust the pressure in each isolator to keep the optical table surface level, even when the distribution of weight on the optical tabletop is changed.

Please note that an optical table equipped with earthquake restraints cannot be used with an optical table frame.

  • Two Voltage Options: 230 V @ 50 Hz or 115 V @ 60 Hz

The PTA512, PTA513, and PTA514 are high-performance air compressors designed for applications demanding the highest quality air supply. They are self contained, lightweight, and compact, with minimal vibrations due to the very low noise emitted (30 dB at 1 m) from the compressor. The oil-lubricated pump unit is fitted with piston rings, thereby eliminating oil carryover to the air supply. These compressors deliver 50% more air than other silent compressors.

They accept standard 6 mm outer diameter tubing, include an air regulator, filter, receiver tank with pressure gauge, safety valve, drain, and line pressure gauge. They are shipped with a power cord for the appropriate territory. For detailed specifications, please see our product presentation.
