minusK TECHNOLOGY - Custom/Vacuum/Cleanroom

Whether your applications is 1 lb or more than 50,000 lbs, Minus K can scale their negative-stiffness vibration isolation products to meet the needs. Minus K Technology, Inc. has been selected by ITT Space Systems, LLC, subcontractor to Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC), to provide vibration isolators for the ground testing of the new James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) at the Johnson Space Center (JSC). The JWST will be placed in a vacuum chamber at the Johnson Space Center and supported by a set of custom Minus K vibration isolators handling over 50,000 lbs. on 6 isolators.

Previously NASA/JPL needed a dynamic test bed for the Space Interferometry Mission (SIM) to demonstrate spacecraft vibration-induced errors of a few nanometers. They got a set of vacuum compatible negative-stiffness isolators that proved successful for their test bed.

All of Minus K's isolators can me made vacuum and clean room compatible. They have made their bench top isolators vacuum compatible for both the German Center for Aerospace (DLR), European Space Research and Technology Centre/European Space Agency (ESTEC/ESA).

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
