EXPLORE OUR MECHANICAL TESTING FACILITIESE
Vibration, bump, and shock
Our electrodynamic shaker can test equipment for mechanical stress encountered during transportation or when mounted in vehicles, trains, ships, and airplanes. We are accredited to many standards and can handle special customer specifications.
The shaker can exert a force of 26 kN, can operate at frequencies between 2-2000 Hz, can simulate vibrations at a speed of 1.4 m/s, and gravity of 800 m/s (80 g). We can also combine mechanical and climatic exposure testing in a 1 m3 climatic chamber that can be mounted on the shaker in both vertical and horizontal axes.
Guided free fall
Our fall test facility can be used for both free fall and guided free fall testing for evaluating the reliability of portable equipment and packaging material. Various fall surfaces can be used, e.g. steel and wood. The fall height is limited to 250 cm and the weight to 10 kg. Furthermore, high-speed video of the impact is used for the evaluation of failure mechanisms.
We can test the mechanical properties of materials by pressing, stretching, twisting, bending, and rubbing. These exposures can also be used for accelerated mechanical testing of products or parts, e.g. printed circuit boards or touch displays. We can handle loads up to 250 N and have the capability of making special fixtures adapted to the test. Static load and impact testing can also be done, for example, safety investigation according to the Low Voltage Directive (LVD).
In combination with mechanical testing, we can perform additional analyses during testing by using high-speed cameras, resonance, and modal analysis (noncontact).
