Mechanical Shock / Drop & Vibration Testing

L.A.B.’s HV Hydraulic Vibration Test Systems help you design high quality, cost-effective products and shipping containers by accurately measuring sensitivity to vibration. HV Systems are specifically designed to meet a wide range of ASTM, DOT, ISTA, ISO and federal standards for vibration testing. HV Systems are ideal for a wide spectrum of testing applications ranging from sine sweep tests to the most complex data real time simulation, or random reproduction applications.

Precision drop testing at an affordable price. We call it the ACCUDROP 500 drop tester. This drop tester represents the ultimate in product and package performance testing and is designed to meet a wide variety of global testing needs.

Model AD-160A is one of three models in the ACCUDROP Series. It helps determine the ruggedness of packages and the effectiveness of their interior cushioning when exposed to impact during material handling. The effects of dropping are easily duplicated in a laboratory setting using controlled and precise at, corner, and edge drop tests.

The need for products to survive various shock levels in an operating environment requires in-house testing of products during the design and evaluation stages. L.A.B. Equipment, Inc.’s SD-series of mechanical free-fall test systems produces accurate and repeatable half sine, square-wave and sawtooth pulses in accordance with military and industry specifications.

The AutoShock-II ™ is a fully automated series of shock test systems used to measure and identify product fragility levels and evaluate protective packaging. With the simulation of real world shock pulses, including half sine, square wave and sawtooth pulse shapes, as well as impact energy levels, manufacturers can systematically test and optimize product design and packaging. L.A.B. Equipment, Inc.’s fully automated computer controlled shock and data analysis test systems are the critical path in accomplishing this optimization.

Incline Impact testers are used to simulate the handling of crates, palletized loads, and rail car carriers. Several sizes are available for testing palletized loads and single products up to 12,000 lbs. (5,454 kg). Our complete line of impact recording instrumentation will also provide you with the qualitative results and documentation required to substantiate the performance of your product or packaged system.

L.A.B. Transportation Simulators are used to determine the ability of packages and products to withstand shocks and vibrations encountered during in-plant handling and warehousing, shipping and distribution warehousing. Our transportation simulators use three methods of motion; rotary or circular synchronous motion, non-synchronous motion, and vertical linear motion to deliver the precise results you expect.

L.A.B. VibraTest Series of mechanical shakers with a frequency range of 8-60 Hz, provide an effective approach for testing electronic products, batteries, and parts for loose components and hardware failures. Advance Machine Control(AMC+) comes standard with our VibraTest Series, which expands the capabilities of the machine even further.

IMV A-Series

A series is the “new standard” in vibration testing, with a solid test performance. A series increases the relative excitation force and has a displacement of 51 mmp-p (2 inch stroke) which gives good balance between specification of velocity, acceleration and displacement.

It also provides a maximum of 3.5m/s shock velocity testing, which responds to the demand in lithium battery testing. Rapid creation of a test from a set of pre-defined templates conforming to most international test standards. Simply select the standard required to generate the main test settings.

ELSTAR Elektronik AG is a manufacturer of one of the worlds most advanced series of mechanical shock test machines.

We can supply a range of machines capable of half sine shock amplitudes of up to 2000g and a repetition rate of up to 60 shocks/min. A major feature of our shock test machines is the ability to produce high quality highly repetitive shocks this makes Elstar Elektronik machine popular where accuracy is paramount. Many machines have been sold to watch manufacturers and to high presision optics suppliers. We are also capable of customising these machines to match individual requirements.

Our IMPALA data acquisition and closed loop control software gives great flexibility and is simple to operate.

Accurate, repeatable waveforms: The STM shock test machine gives results which meet a wide range of half sine test specifications, such as NHIS-90 ,NHIS-91, EN 60068-2-27, MIL STD 810E, BS 2011 and DEF STD 07-55.

Stand-alone design: The STM shock test machine is free standing and therefore can be placed directly on a standard laboratory floor. Because no external reaction mass is requires, costly alterations to the installation site are avoided. The machine is also easily transportable to other sites. Installation is straightforward; requiring only a high pressure airline and single phase AC power.
