Many labs utilize large and heavy equipment during the course of their work, which may result in flooring and wall vibrations. While this may not impact the work done in some labs, those that use highly-calibrated and sensitive equipment can easily be derailed by excessive imbalance/vibration.
Vibrations can not only be disruptive, they can be potentially dangerous, causing inaccurate results, sloppy analysis, and can even damage expensive equipment.
Anti-vibration and balance tables absorb the shock created by atmospheric/environmental vibrations, creating a stable surface on which to perform sensitive tasks. Whether you just fired up some heavy-duty equipment, or your facility has particularly shaky floors, having a balance or anti-vibration table on hand will ensure you always have a steady work surface.
At OnePointe Solutions, our specialty is creating custom solutions for our clients. Our tables, workbenches, islands, and other work surfaces are fully customizable, and can be tailor-made to suit the specific needs of your facility.
When it comes to balance tables and anti-vibration tables, the terms are used interchangeably since they both perform the same duties. However, there are some key differences. Check out our comparison diagram below to learn more.
These type of lab tables are made from either solid chemical epoxy resin or marble:
Marble Balance Tables: The most stable table for precison laboratory instruments. The worksurface and legs are 3″ thick and reinforced with steel support pipes.
Solid Epoxy Resin Balance Table: Provide highly superior stability for motion-sensitve equipment. They come at a standard height of 31″ tall with a nominal work surface of 35″ x 24″.
Balance tables, though limited in sizing, are extremely heavy and should be moved with caution and not by oneself.
Anti-vibration tables, unlike balance tables, are made from tube steel/metal and come with anti-vibration levelers. With this option, you have more flexibility in dimensions, configurations, worksurface, etc.
These, of course, are not as heavy as a balance table but should be moved with caution and not alone as well, depending on size. Anti-vibration tables are heavy duty, durable, high-quality, and with the anti-leveler foot option, come with an additoinal load capacity of 3,000 lbs.
Made in the USA in your production warehouse, anti-vibration tables, by OnePointe Solutions, are designed and tailored to fit the needs of your lab facility with ease and confidence. Every time.
Note: These options are only for anti-vibration tables and NOT balance tables which are made entirely from chemical epoxy resin or marble.
Every industrial space is different. If you have a surface in mind or need assistance picking an optimal surface, we can help.
Our anti-vibration tables can be made to accommodate virtually any special equipment, and we have already worked closely with many clients to create anti-vibration frames for a variety of sensitive apparatus.
Our team of dedicated professional designers can work with you to develop a custom solution, and can build tables and workbenches to your exacting specifications. We’ll work with you to assess the needs of your facility in order to provide guidance to the best anti-vibration table solution.
Whether you choose to go the custom route and work with our design team to create your own balance and anti-vibration tables, or you go with one of our existing designs, we can help you find the option that is right for you.
