A vibration isolation system is presented in this paper which is developed by the combination of multiple vibration isolation modules. Each module is fabricated by connecting a positive stiffness suspension in series with a negative stiffness suspension. Each vibration isolation module can be considered as a self-sufficient single-degree-of-freedom vibration isolation system. 3-DOF vibration isolation system can be developed by combining three modules. As the number of motions to be controlled and the number of actuators are equal, there is no redundancy in actuators in such vibration isolation systems. Experimental results are presented to verify the proposed concept of the development of MDOF vibration isolation system using vibration isolation modules.
