Herzan Unveils the MicroDamp Series, an Economical Solution for Vibration Isolation

Herzan LLC today announced the MicroDamp Series vibration isolators: a new vibration isolation platform that breaks away from Herzan’s typical catalog of products, offering an affordable and efficient means of vibration isolation tailored to the weight of any instrument.

The MicroDamp Series utilizes a damped composite material at its core with an aluminum casing to create an economical solution for applications not requiring low-frequency vibration isolation.

MicroDamp Series isolators can be easily configured to individual instrument weights and weight distribution profiles, offering a widely applicable solution for instruments between 8-3,600 Lbs. With no air or electricity required, the MicroDamp Series is an easy to install, maintenance-free solution that can be designed into a variety of instrument configurations.

Product Highlights

  • Affordable and efficient vibration isolation
  • Minimal amplitude within resonant frequency
  • Compact, modular form factor
  • Wide range of supported instrument weights
  • Easy to integrate into existing instrument setups
  • No air or electricity required
  • Light-weight and easy to install/use

Relevant Applications

  • Optical Microscopy
  • Interferometry
  • Profilometry
  • Microbalanace Systems
  • Precision Inspection Stations
  • Highly Sensitive Lab Equipment

MicroDamp Series Selection Guide

The MicroDamp series often utilizes three to four isolators within a vibration isolation platform, depending on the supported instrument’s dimension profile and overall weight distribution.

When paired with a damped top plate (i.e. granite, aluminum, breadboard, etc.) or integrated into a workstation (NDW Series), the MicroDamp Series becomes a complete solution for instruments requiring a stable and reliable vibration isolation platform.

To determine the correct isolator configuration for an instrument, review the MicroDamp models below and locate the model able to sufficiently support the weight of the instrument.

To correctly select the relevant model for an instrument, multiply the minimum/maximum load capacities by three to determine the total minimum/maximum load capacities.

The supported instrument must fall within this range to receive optimal vibration isolation performance. If an instrument’s weight does not fall within this range, multiply the minimum/maximum load capacities by a larger number (>3) until the instrument falls within range.
