Halcyonics Workstations: i4, Vario & IVF   

Vibration isolation systems for the laboratory from Accurion   

Accurion designs and manufactures the Halcyonics range of advanced vibration reduction systems for today's exacting nanotechnologies. Whether it's high-resolution measurement or a high-precision manufacturing process, effective anti-vibration solutions are required to achieve maximum performance.

Active vibration isolation overcomes the limits of passive damping systems, enabling the attenuation of vibrations caused by machinery, people, traffic, even sound waves, that would disturb delicate instruments.

The systems detailed below are designed for scientific or medical applications in the laboratory. The workstation group consists of three types: the Workstation_i4 has a small isolated surface for lightweight applications, while the Workstation_Vario has a larger isolated surface. The IVF_Workstation incorporates an active vibration isolation platform built into desk-style lab table to enable ergonomic use of a microscope.

Applications for the Workstation series include: Scanning probe microscopy, inverted optical microscopy with or without SPM combination, confocal microscopy, profilometry, nanoindentation, patch-clamp setups, laser setups, and many more.

Workstation_i4

Halcyonics Workstation_i4

The Workstation_i4 offers a compact active isolated surface surrounded by a conventional non-isolated laboratory desk surface. This makes it especially ideal for microscopes or microscope/SPM combinations, as the surrounding surface can be used to place additional equipment.

Specifications

  • Isolation in 6 axes
  • For loads up to 120 kg
  • Automatic load adjustment
  • Low voltage electromagnetic actuators
  • No compressed air required
  • Active vibration isolation from 0.6 Hz
  • Passive vibration isolation above 200 Hz
  • Excellent positional stability due to unit's inherent stiffness
  • No natural low frequency resonance, so excellent vibration characteristics below 5 Hz
  • 2-year warranty

Workstation_Vario

Halcyonics Workstation_Vario

The Workstation_Vario systems come with an inset steel-framed optical breadboard as the working surface for larger and heavier applications. The outer supporting frame can be also used for the installation of acoustic enclosures. There are three sizes of this workstation, each with a different load capacity.

Specifications

  • Isolation in 6 axes
  • Loads up to 320 kg
  • Automatic load adjustment
  • Low voltage electromagnetic actuators
  • No compressed air required
  • Active vibration isolation from 1.0 Hz
  • Passive vibration isolation above 200 Hz
  • Fast settling time of 300 ms
  • No natural low frequency resonance, so excellent vibration characteristics below 5 Hz
  • 2-year warranty

IVF_Workstation

Halcyonics IVF Workstation

Accurion's IVF Workstation, although it was specifically designed for in-vitro-fertilisation, is ideal for applications where biologists need to ergonomically sit in front of their microscope.

The workstation consists of a lab table with integrated active vibration isolation system to actively compensate incoming vibrations. The application on top of the isolator is therefore protected from vibrations while the user's arms can rest comfortably on the non-isolated surface without impacting the procedure.

Specifications

  • Isolation in 6 axes
  • Low voltage electromagnetic actuators
  • No compressed air required
  • Active vibration isolation from 0.6 Hz
  • Passive vibration isolation above 200 Hz
  • Fast settling time of 500 ms
  • No natural low frequency resonance, so excellent vibration characteristics below 5 Hz

A number of papers have been published by scientists around the globe who have used Halcyonics vibration isolated workstations within their research. Here is an example:
