Elliot Scientific is pleased to announce that the company is now the exclusive distributor within the UK and Ireland of the Halcyonics range of active vibration isolation systems from Accurion GmbH.
Goettingen-based Accurion offers a versatile portfolio of platforms, workstations and modular support units that can be found in labs throughout Europe and beyond. These systems attenuate the vibrations caused by machinery, people, traffic, even sound waves, that would normally disturb delicate instruments.
Applications that can benefit from a Halcyonics system include: scanning probe microscopy, inverted optical microscopy, confocal microscopy, profilometry, nanoindentation, patch-clamp setups, laser experiments, ultra-precise weighing, micromanipulation such as in IVF, Hi-Fi turntables and many more.
Accurion offer Benchtop, Workstation, and Heavy-duty Halcyonics systems for different applications. These can range from a sensitive compact measuring instrument to a large semiconductor manufacturing apparatus that might weigh hundreds of kilos.
Halcyonics active systems have major advantages over passive anti-vibration devices: faster set-up, no need for compressed air, and the lack of low frequency resonance. This is a frequency where passive isolators amplify vibrations instead of isolating them.
