Can your products, parts, or assemblies sustain the shaking they receive in transit or in daily use? Vibration testing enables you to evaluate product performance under virtually identical conditions. 

Element has extensive vibration testing capability including multi-shaker facilities that are comprised of both electrodynamic and servo-hydraulic systems that can reproduce low and high frequency conditions.  

Our systems include shakers specializing in large and challenging testing and suited for the vibration testing of large or small products. Our support equipment allows for testing of products while they are operating including hydraulically and/or electrically. 

With our state of the art control systems, we can perform field data replication as well as impart specified test levels to meet your customer’s requirements and assure that the test unit is up to the task. 

Electro-dynamic vibration testing systems
  • Slip plates allowing for 3-axis independent testing 
  • High displacement, up to 40,000 force pounds of thrust 
  • Multiple response channels 
  • “Shake and Bake” – combined temperature and vibration testing 
Hydraulic and mechanical vibration testing systems 
  • Ideal for low frequency, high displacement testing such as transportation vibration on fully loaded pallets 
  • All ISTA requirements for shock and vibration including: Vertical-linear, random with and without top loads, fixed-displacement  
  • Seismic Qualification 
  • Office Vibration on Rack mount Telecom equipment. (GR-487 and 63-CORE) 
Meeting challenging requirements 
Element’s vibration test labs in the US and Europe help companies meet the latest defense, aerospace, transportation and commercial requirements, including: 
  • Combined temperature and vibration (“Shake and bake”) 
  • Narrow Band Random on Random 
  • Swept Sine Superimposed on Random 
  • Gunfire Simulation 
  • Helicopter Rotor Frequency Simulation 
  • Random 
  • Resonance Search & Dwell 
  • SRS 
  • Sine-on-Random 
  • Blade-off vibration (engine fan blade loss and windmilling) 
  • Landing Gear Tire Burst 
  • Shock 
  • Tracked Vehicle Simulation
