Ensure your product performance – also under extreme conditions
What is shock and vibration testing and why is it important?
Vibration testing and shock testing are used to simulate in a controlled laboratory environment the extreme conditions that a product may face during use e.g. mishandling, drop, and various mode of shipment. They enable you and your customers to gain confidence in your product's performance by ensuring that the product stays in good condition and is able to perform satisfactorily adn reliable in its intended environments.
How can we help you?
However complex your product and whatever industry sector you operate in, you can have confidence that your vibration & shock testing needs come within the scope of our highly trained and experienced staff.
Our impressive vibration capability enables us to reproduce low and high frequency conditions, and to test products up to 5 tons in accordance with the requirements of MIL STD 810, DEF STAN 00-35, RTCA DO160, BS EN 60068, to name but a few. Any additional test can be added quickly through our flexible schedule, which is a rare privilege granted to us by our accrediting authority in the UK.
Our shock testing laboratories in the UK have a unique set of facilities designed to test the robustness and fragility of packaged samples and their packaging. We have several shock machines, a side impact machine, a compression machine, a precision drop tester and bounce facilities.
Furthermore, for long-term mechanical cycling with or without climatic conditions, simple fixturing to hold multiple parts in a particular position or develop a one-of-a-kind test stand - our experienced staff in USA has the skills, facilities, and experience to build a solution for almost any testing challenge.
