Vibration Isolation for AFM and Scanning Probe Microscopy

The TS Series is considered to be the industry leader in vibration isolation performance and usability, providing sub-hertz vibration isolation (all six degrees of freedom) in a plug-and-play form factor. The intrinsic stiffness of the TS system imparts exceptional positional and directional stability, guaranteeing a controlled and stable measuring environment for any sensitive instrumentation.

With a number of unique features setting itself apart from competing solutions (e.g., automatic leveling, external vibration monitoring, LCD display, etc.), the TS Series becomes the ideal solution for users wanting to attain the best vibration isolation performance available, while not sacrificing on functionality or design.

Product Highlights

  • Plug-n-Play System: Automatic load adjustment guarantees seamless user experience
  • Active > Passive: Lack of low frequency resonance and being 500 times stiffer means better performance than passive systems
  • Simple Integration: Lowest profile active vibration isolation available (at 3.3″ H)
  • Focus on the Research: No installation or maintenance needed, just plug-and-play
  • Isolates All Vibrations: Sub-hertz active vibration isolation in all six degrees of freedom
  • Research-Grade Technology: Advanced piezoelectric sensory technology offering uncompromising isolation performance
  • Complete Isolation Performance: Internal feedback loop damps all mechanical resonances
  • Real Time Results: LCD display of real-time vibration levels, weight distribution and various other programmable features.

The TS Series


The TS series is perfect for precision research instruments that need a low operating noise floor and absolute stability. The vibration isolation performance of every single TS table enables research instruments to maximize their resolution by preventing the ambient vibration noise from impacting their data. Basically, any instrument that is sensitive to vibration noise less than 5 Hz can majorly benefit from the unique technology discovered within a TS Series table.

Width x Depth x Height
TS-150 400 x 450 x 78.5 mm /15.7 x 17.7 x 3.1 in. 150 Kg / 330 Lbs
TS-140 500 x 600 x 84 mm /19.7 x 23.6 x 3.3 in. 140 Kg / 300 Lbs
TS-300 600 x 800 x 120 mm / 23.6 x 31.5 x 4.7 in. 300 Kg / 660 Lbs
TS-300 LT 600 x 800 x 120 mm / 23.6 x 31.5 x 4.7 in. 120 Kg / 264 Lbs


When determining the TS Series table best suited for an instrument or application, it is essential to review the top plate dimensions and load capacity of each table (that is, TS-150 top plate dimensions: 15.7″ x 17.7″; load capacity: 330 Lbs) and detect the model that has a large enough top plate + load capacity capable of supporting the instrument.

If none of the models listed above meet the instrument’s profile or footprint, the AVI Series is then considered to be the correct answer for low-frequency vibration isolation.
