lassOne™ Workstation

ClassOne™ Workstation
ClassOne™ Workstation
The all-stainless steel TMC ClassOne™ Workstation is a high-performance,pneumatic vibration isolation table designed from the floor up for maximum cleanroom compatibility. Isolation is provided by the same Gimbal Piston™ element that provides unsurpassed performance in isolating optical tables, electron microscopes, precision balances, and scanning tunneling microscopes.

The ClassOne Workstation is alcohol-wiped with a lint-free cloth and is double-wrapped in plastic at the factory prior to shipping.

Gimbal Piston™
All CleanBench tables incorporate TMC’s Gimbal Piston Air Isolators as a standard feature. The Gimbal Piston has consistently shown to out-perform other air isolators in side-by-side testing. It offers outstanding low frequency vibration isolation in all axes and maintains its performance specifications even when subjected to extremely low input levels of excitation. Proprietary damping techniques allow the Gimbal Piston to stabilize relatively top-heavy payloads and quickly dissipate disturbances of the isolated table top.

Benefits
• Vertical and horizontal vibration isolation starting at 2 Hz
• Reduces vibration by more than 95% at 10Hz
• Virtually free of friction, avoiding rolling friction to static friction transitions
• Accommodates horizontal displacement by acting as a gimbal

The Gimbal Piston™ Air Isolator provides outstanding isolation in all directions for even the lowest input levels. It is lightly damped and highly responsive to typical, low-amplitude ambient floor vibrations, yet achieves very high damping for gross transient disturbances, such as sudden load changes or bumping the top plate. The result is that Gimbal Piston Isolators provide superior isolation yet will virtually eliminate any gross disturbance within a few seconds. It can also stabilize isolated systems with relatively high centers of gravity without compromising isolation.
