Our platforms for large equipment offer you maximum flexibility and choice. We offer sixteen proven modular configurations to optimise your application.
BaseMate designs feature a proprietary two-stage pendulum and airmount system that provide omnidirectional vibration isolation. Stage one is a low stiffness/high performance Active-Air levelling support system with very low vertical natural frequency to maximise the vertical isolation efficiency. Stage two uses a tri-filar pendulum assembly that acts in conjunction with the airmount system to provide a stable cradle support with a low horizontal natural frequency. This, combined with viscous damping, maximises the efficiency of the horizontal isolation. Because the BaseMate's pendulum assembly does away with the need for the corner lift bracket used by most manufacturers, the resonance they produce is eliminated and an overall improvement in performance is immediately achieved.
Automatic levelling and height controls are incorporated for convenience and stability. The standard BaseMate platform is a 75mm thick damped rigid epoxy laminated "sandwich" with 13mm steel top and bottom plates and a 50mm highly damped composite layer with our exclusive constrained layer damping.
Vibration-Free Islands offer an economical control method for applications where equipment needs to be isolated from surrounding raised flooring and building vibrations. Warsash Scientific has provided systems for use with raised cleanroom floors from 300mm to 1800mm high. They provide an excellent alternative to poured in place isolation pads, and can be relocated in the future to reconfigure rooms.
We are able to supply the most advanced sub-floor vibration isolation system. By adapting the BaseMate (9300 Series) Pendulum Platform, from Kinetic Systems, for installation in the return air plenum beneath the "deck", we provide a system for cleanroom space economy. It is recommended that the BaseMate Vibration-Free Island be used to maximise isolation of sensitive electro-optic systems from vibration caused by footfall traffic and air handling equipment on raised decks. Warsash Scientific can tailor a system to match your equipment.
The Series 1206 VIBRAPLANE Individual Mounts are ideal when designing or retrofitting sensitive equipment. They use the same isolation techniques as our workstations and platforms, and perform exceedingly well in new equipment or to retrofit existing applications that don't fit the standard table or platform.
VIBRAPLANE mounts are offered in active and slave configurations. Active mounts use the VIBRALEVEL Air Servo Valve to feed or bleed air from the mounts to maintain preset "zero deflection" and compensate for load changes. Since the easiest way to establish a plane uses three points, three active mounts should be used per system regardless of the total of number of mounts used. Slave mounts do not have Air Servo Valves but are slaved (controlled) by one of the active mounts. The number of slave mounts is a function of configuration and load.
