ScienceDesks: Anti-Vibration Workstations for Imaging Applications




  • Outstanding Vibration Isolation Performance
  • Versatile Selection of Frames and Accessories
  • Space-Saving Corner Option Also Available
  • Ergonomic Design Povides Legroom when Sitting

ScienceDesks are high-quality ergonomic workstations with a modular system of accessories, making them ideal for use in imaging applications. The active-air and passive anti-vibration frame options provide the user with a tabletop that is isolated from the detrimental effects that vibrations in the lab may cause. The tabletop is also protected from incidental contact because it rests inside the frame's outer rails. Thorlabs offers stainless steel tabletops with or without a regularly spaced mounting holes. The upper and lower rails on the ScienceDesk frame allow the user to strategically place shelves and other accessories around an imaging system so that supporting equipment can be in close proximity to the isolated surface without being on it.

A corner option is also available which fits in the corner of the lab/room and permits access to the entire breadboard surface from the slanted corner. These corner option desks are available with either active or heavy duty passive isolation or rigid non-isolating supports. They are supplied complete with our best, PerformancePlus series breadboard and are compatible with 2' (600 mm) deep lab furniture.

Each of the links below leads to a page that has all of the components needed to construct a complete workstation around the frame chosen.
