Newport microscope platforms are designed to match the footprint of each model of microscope. This minimizes the workspace occupied by the isolation platform. Newport platforms are also designed to be very low profile and when installed under a microscope they raise the microscope only 1 to 1-½ inches. Competing products typically require a supply of compressed air or nitrogen, come only in a few standard rectangular platform sizes, and typically raise the working height of the microscope at least 3 inches, which can create ergonomic problems for the user.

Because our products are made to fit, you don't have to worry about added height or bulk that standard platforms would cause. Our custom platforms fit the base of your specific microscope for a low profile, low weight solution to your vibration isolation needs. In response to ergonomic problems caused by raising the microscope working height, Newport has recently developed a modified platform that raises the microscope working height by only half an inch! This adaption of our standard platform is available for any of our microscope platforms.

Ultra Low Profile Platforms

Newport Vibration Isolation Platforms are already the lowest profile available. The standard platform raises the height of the microscope approximately 1.25 to 1.5 inches above the work surface. We have learned that for some operators and some microscopes, even this height increase can cause ergonomic issues. The ultimate solution is to purchase the Newport Vibration Isolation Table which has the isolation platform flush with the rest of the table top.

When this is not a viable option Newport has introduced an ultra low profile option that can be provided with any standard or custom platform. This configuration allows the steel platform to sit just above the work surface and results in only raising the microscope 0.5 inches to provide the vibration isolation. If the low profile option is of interest please contact us for price and delivery for your choice of platform
