  • Newport Acquires Vibration Isolation Line from Vistek
Oct 2012
IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 15, 2012 — Newport Corp. said on Monday that it has extended its range of vibration-isolation equipment by acquiring the products and technology of Tempe, Ariz.-based Vistek Inc.

The new vibration-isolation products will be offered as part of Newport's VIBe line and include mechanical isolation bearings, benchtop platforms and stand-alone workstations. In addition to protecting sensitive equipment, the products can reduce the amount of vibration that is transmitted into laboratory benches by equipment such as mixers, centrifuges or impact testers, Newport said.

"Newport and Vistek have been working together since 2010, when we jointly developed Newport's VIBe product offering," said Jim Fisher, group director for Newport's Vibration Control business unit. "Since that time, we have brought this technology to new customers around the world to solve their unique vibration-isolation challenges. This acquisition further expands our product offering in this area and also brings us Vistek's existing customer base. We are especially excited about the new products we will be able to bring to the market by expanding Vistek's core patented technology."

The new line includes the compact LIP-Lab Isolation Platforms, which are designed specifically for balances, petri dishes and other small lab equipment and devices. The systems are commonly susceptible to environmental vibrations created by HVAC units, elevators, automobile and foot traffic, shakers and other equipment.

A defect in the cleaved end face of an optical fiber, in the form of a sharp protrusion at the edge of the fiber.
An instrument consisting essentially of a tube 160 mm long, with an objective lens at the distant end and an eyepiece at the near end. The objective forms a real aerial image of the object in the focal plane of the eyepiece where it is observed by the eye. The overall magnifying power is equal to the linear magnification of the objective multiplied by the magnifying power of the eyepiece. The eyepiece can be replaced by a film to photograph the primary image, or a positive or negative relay...
