Some operations may only take place in special labs, protected from external disturbances which are reduced to an absolute minimum small floor vibration, that are sufficient to prevent the high-tech equipment from providing the desired precision in the tests.The measures should therefore be designed for very high vibration requirements.
The air rubbers or air shock absorbers can also find usage in delicate and laboratory electronic equipment and machinery. These are critical areas where reading accuracy of instruments is affected by unwanted vibrations like Analytical Balances, Hardness Testers, Spectroscopes, Microscopes, Roughness Testers, Galvanometers, Profile Projectors, Atomic Force Microscopes, Roundness Testers, Electronic Microscopes and Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometers.
In order to prevent these disturbances, a rubber bellow could be used. It has to be considered that Oria’s shock absorber may be used in other type of areas, as for example in laboratories. The isolator minimizes the vibrations that may come from the floor, reducing possible defects that may harm high precision electronic equipment than we might be using in the laboratory for tests. Furthermore, experiments and measurements should be more accurate due to the isolation of these disturbances.
Optical device with M-20 pneumatic air bellows
In the below picture we can see an optical device that have tight requirements in terms of alignment. For this reason, the M-20 pneumatic air bellows have been fitted to avoid other vibrating elements affecting on the device during the testing process, as the test accuracy is extremely important in this case.
In the following picture we can see how the pneumatic air bellows work in this application absorbing the vibrations coming from the floor.
