Shaker Vibration Testing
Quality is the watchword of modern manufacturers and testing feedback is the way they achieve it. Vibration testing on electrodynamic or hydraulic vertical shakers (and on shaker-driven horizontal slip tables) is done for a broad range of reasons. These include demonstration of compliance with standards, new design qualification, stress screening, fatigue life evaluation, shock and earthquake survivability demonstration and various product pre-shipment audit and burn-in tests. Automotive, aerospace, avionic, telephonic, consumer electronic and military equipment providers use shakers to prove and sustain the quality of their wares. Shakers are used to subject a Device Under Test (DUT) to random, swept-sine and transient shocks.
