As a design engineer, below are few points to put into consideration when evaluating or comparing potential mechanical shock and vibration testing laboratories.
Random vibration testing is an invaluable general-purpose tool for environmental vibration simulation & most common types of vibration testing services performed by vibration test labs
Understanding what the vibration testing lab will be doing for you is critical to ensuring that the test data which you will receive is valid and not affected your lack of experience in the test method.
Vibration Testing – Where Should You Mount The Control Accelerometer? When you contract a vibration testing services laboratory what you’re really doing is hiring someone to input a precise amount of energy into your DUT in a way that can be repeated. In order to do this the laboratory requires a detailed test method and[…]
Accelerometer Selection for Vibration Testing When you boil it down to its essentials, vibration testing is about introducing a specified level of energy into a DUT at or over a range of frequencies. We normally control and measure that energy with one or more accelerometers. Understanding the capabilities of these accelerometers is important to ensure[…]
