Vibration, Drop and Shock Testing
Our UKAS accredited test laboratory offers an extensive range of knowledge and expertise that can assist you in completing all of your products environmental testing requirements. Conforming to test standards is not always straight forward, and our engineers have the experience to make the process much simpler, helping you make sense of what your requirements are and how to achieve them.
During its lifetime, there are many stresses that can fatigue or degrade a product’s integrity. One of the main mechanical stresses influenced on nearly everything is vibration.
Vibrations happen in nearly all environments, from constant flow frequency, to high energy impacts. The ways in which your product reacts and responds to these are integral to its lifetime and reliability. More and more sectors of industry are incorporating requirements for conformity to a standard, for both confidence in the products robustness and performance.
We have a Sentek M404A vibration machine with slip table which is capable of 40 kN of force and has a static load capacity of 500 kg. It is able to do a variety of axis, sine, random, sine-on-random and random-on-random vibration.
We also have a range of accelerometers to enable you to monitor your product in multiple positions. If a suitable fixing is not available, we are happy to offer our advice. We aim to be as flexible as possible to accommodate your exact requirements.
Alphatech has two drop leaf testers, a single and double leaf, and a mechanical free fall machine. We are able to offer a variety of drop surfaces to meet your requirements. Our goal is to encompass all mechanical testing needs, saving you from the hassle of having to go to multiple test houses for one standard requirements.
