An active device using electromagnetic forces was constructed and examined for the purpose of minimizing the resonance in air mounts of clean rooms. The air mounts are vulnerable to low-frequency resonance due to heavy weight and low stiffness. A hybrid structure of the active device, composed of pneumatic and electromagnetic parts, was developed and tested. The pneumatic parts in the device support heavy weights under the air mounts, and the electromagnetic parts reduce the resonance. The electromagnetic parts are composed of dual stators and an armature, which surround the pneumatic parts. The resonance can decrease when electromagnetic forces are generated in the gaps between the stators and the armature. Four active devices were installed under a 3-ton surface plate for a vibration test apparatus. The vibration was detected by eddy-current sensors. Discrete P Control logic was based on displacement, and embedded in a C6713 DSP. The results from impact tests show that the peak magnitude in the resonance frequency can be reduced to ?10 dB.
