Optical Tables and Breadboards

Optical Tables and Breadboards

At Kinetic Systems, we’ve taken the guesswork out of selecting optical tables and vibration control equipment. With three standard damping levels to choose from, our honeycomb vibration isolation optical tables provide cost-effective solutions for virtually any application. For extremely sensitive applications in severe or unknown vibration environments, we recommend our 5300 Series honeycomb optical table featuring quad-tuned plus broadband damping. For less demanding applications choose our 5200 Series which features dual-tuned plus broadband damping. For the most most environments our 5100H series with broadband damping is the optimal choice. All systems are available with either Active-Air or Passive-Air vibration isolators, or Modular Rigid Supports.

Ultimate Grade - 5300 Series Optical Tables

The 5300 Series provides the ultimate performance in an optical table. It features quad-tuned dampers for maximum stability and minimum response to vibration disturbances. Broadband damping… proprietary epoxy bonded steel and honeycomb… unsurpassed rigidity and stability.

Ultimate Grade – 5300 Series Small Optical Table.

Research Grade - 5200 Series Optical Tables

The 5200 Series Optical Table is designed for critical optical research. 3/16″ thick ferromagnetic stainless steel tabletop, with both dual-tuned damping and broadband damping for comprehensive vibration absorption.

Research Grade - 5200 Series Vibration Isolation Optical Tables

Laboratory Grade - 5100H Series Optical Tables

The 5100H Series Laboratory Table features broadband damping using our proprietary epoxy formulation. It has a 3/16″ ferromagnetic stainless steel top and is identical in construction to our 5100T Series optical tables. It differs only in the amount of vibration absorption provided.
