Mechanical Shock Testing

The electrodynamic vibration test machines are also used to generate highly repeatable mechanical shock testing events. Standard shock pulses such as half-sine, saw tooth and trapezoid shapes are all available.

Higher accelerations can also be performed on the pneumatic assist drop-shock test machine.

Clients with HALT reliability testing requirements combine rapid temperature transitions with vibration testing in our AGREE chamber with transition rates as high as 20°C per minute.
