Sensitive Equipment

For the effective operation of many machines vibration is critical.  The performance of sensitive equipment can be defined by the vibration is exposed to.  For equipment and processes such as Scanning Electron Microscopes, Telescopes, wafer fabrication facilities low vibration is critical.

International, British and ASHRAE standards define vibration levels for different classes of specialist and scientific equipment.  Xi have highly sensitive equipment for monitoring vibration levels of such facilities and can even simulate the behaviour of structures and foundations.

Previously, the Xi engineering team were voted Semiconductor Outsource Company of the Year for our provision of vibration solutions to the industry. This included providing support in the layout and design of structural fabrication plants to monitoring vibrations and designing components for silicon wafer handling and precision wire bonding equipment.  However, “sensitive equipment” covers a wide domain; observatories, optics, bio and chemical labs, neonatal care, measurement equipment, Arctic exploration are some of the fields Xi have assisted clients. If you have a vibration concern in whatever field were sure we can help.

Using dynamic modelling and analysis, Xi will design the most efficient and cost effective solutions with the least disruption to operations. We have successfully minimised vibration in a variety of high-specification and scientific applications.
