ENVIRONMENTAL AND EMC TEST LABORATORIES

Vibration Facilities

A range of shakers with advanced digital control and analysis systems.

An impressive range of vibration facilities enable us to test a wide range of products ranging from component level, to large payloads of several tonnes.

A variety of shakers, with up to 36,000lbf (160kN) of thrust that allow a great deal of flexibility to meet our customer requirements. Test procedures are tailored to suit the specific test needs of a product. We can achieve complex test profiles and levels to suit each individual unit.

The shakers are driven by sophisticated digital controllers capable of sine, random and shock profiles in three dimensions.
Multiple channels of data may be recorded and analysed in real time from our control room. Our latest system allows up to 64 channels of data to be analysed simultaneously.
