The KL-VIP vibration isolation platforms released by Klughammer Industrie GmbH can be placed anywhere on a table or work plate to stop the transmission of vibrations into equipment such as microscopes. The platforms are passive, mechanical and maintenance-free. Air hoses and supporting hardware are not required. The bearings isolate for both the horizontal and vertical vibration components. Platforms include a black powder-coated plate and three or four vibration isolation bearings, and have been designed for microscopes from various manufacturers.
