This paper proposes a torsion isolator with negative stiffness structures, which has low stiffness. The torsion isolator has been designed into disk structure, which is the installation position of the positive springs and negative stiffness structures. In this paper, the model of the torsion isolator is introduced firstly, and the nonlinear stiffness and torque are studied under different compression deformation of springs in negative stiffness structures. Then a two-degree-freedom equation of the torsional isolator is established and vibration transmissibility is obtained by using Harmonic Balance Method. Theoretical analysis results show that the isolator with negative stiffness structures has larger isolation frequency range than linear isolator. Finally, an initial experiment is completed. The experimental results show that the isolator has a good vibration isolation performance.
