Minus K Technology, Inc. Announces New Compact High Performance Vibration Isolation Platforms

New BM-6 and BM-8 Series Offer Low Profile for Bench Top Applications.
INGLEWOOD, California May 10, 2005 — Minus K®Technology, a leading manufacturer of vibration isolation products, announces two new lines of compact high performance vibrationisolation platforms. The new BM-6 and BM-8 series of low profile benchtop platforms incorporates the Minus K patented Negative Stiffness(TM)technology, providing market leading performance in a new compact formfactor.

“We have been successfully delivering vibration isolationsolutions for some of the most demanding applications in industry andthe scientific community”, said David Platus, president and chiefexecutive officer of Minus K Technology. “We are very excited aboutthe new BM-6 and BM-8 series, and anticipate that our new low profileofferings will be performance and value leaders in their class, delivering cost-effective high performance isolation to an increasingnumber of new end-user and OEM applications.”

The new BM-6 and BM-8 series offer a low 4.5-inch profile, and a1.5 Hz horizontal natural frequency in an easy to use and installpassive platform with exceptionally low cost of ownership. The BM-6offers a 2.5 Hz vertical natural frequency, and the BM-8 offers 0.5 Hzvertical natural frequency. Both the BM-6 and BM-8 will supportpayloads of up to 105 lb (48 kg). The Minus K patented NegativeStiffness technology offers performance that exceeds costlier activeand air-based solutions, and without the need for high mass orexpensive facilities for power and air. The Negative Stiffnesstechnology is extremely robust making installation, set up, andoperation quick and easy, without special tools or measurements.

The BM-6, the first model to be released in the new compactisolator series, will be available in June 2005 starting at a listprice of $1, 800. The BM-8 will be available in the third quarter of2005. The BM-6 will be displayed at the NSTI Nanotech 2005 exhibit inAnaheim, California May 9-10, Booth #710.
