Dale W Schubert, Andrew Michael Beard, Steven Frank Shedd, Marion Richard Earles Jr, Andreas H Von Flotow: Stiff actuator active vibration isolation system. Technical Manufacturing Corporation, Quarles & Brady, October 20, 1998: US05823307 (44 worldwide citation)

An active vibration isolation system (10) includes a plurality of stiff actuators, such as piezoelectric motors (12a-c; 284, 350) which support a small mass (18) inside of a case (300). A passive isolator (20) is interposed between the small mass (18) and the payload mass (M.sub.p). In the instance ...
