Active vibration damping (active vibration control) is a method of suppressing vibration by moving the stage in the opposite direction of the vibration direction to maintain the original position. The other method is called passive vibration control, which uses springs or anti-vibration rubber to absorb the vibration and reduce it. Active vibration damping is more effective in reducing vibration and suppressing the occurrence of resonance. Piezoelectric actuators are mainly used for active vibration damping.

Matsusada Precision manufactures and sells piezo actuators and piezo drivers that can be used for active vibration isolation.
