Having experienced a sustained increase in demand for vibration and shock testing of large aerospace systems, particularly at high levels of vibration, TÜV SÜD Product Service is investing in a new large vibration shaker. This investment will cement TÜV SÜD Product Service’s position as the UK’s leading environmental testing laboratory.
The new machine will be operational from February 2013 onwards, and is based on a large electromagnetic LE340 shaker, acquired from one of the TÜV SÜD Group of laboratories in America. The shaker will be upgraded with a new amplifier to provide 150KN of thrust with 50mm peak to peak displacement and will be coupled to a hydrostatic 7 bearing slip table with a working area of 1.5m x 1.5m.
The new vibration shaker will be installed at our Fareham laboratory alongside our existing shakers, and will increase our large shaker capacity from two to three shakers.
