What Is Vibration Testing?

Vibration testing is a vital method to assess a product's performance and reliability under varying dynamic loads. This process involves subjecting a product to a range of vibration frequencies and amplitudes, simulating real-world conditions to detect potential mechanical weaknesses or performance flaws that could occur over time. By identifying and addressing these issues early on, engineers can ensure that the product can withstand the intended environment and avoid costly product recalls or failures.

What Is Shock Testing?

Shock testing is a crucial method to evaluate a product's ability to withstand sudden impacts caused by collisions, or drops that can occur during its lifetime. By subjecting a product to controlled mechanical shocks, engineers can determine whether it meets the required performance and reliability standards. Our labs offer a range of shock testing services to cater to various industries and applications, ensuring that products can endure the conditions they may face in their intended environment.

Why is shock and vibration testing important

Shock and vibration testing provides a wealth of benefits, such as:

  • Discover if your product can withstand use in ‘the real world’
  • Comply with relevant regulations
  • Avoid costly damage during transport
  • Reduce the number of returns and defect products
  • Have total confidence that the product will remain in a good condition

TÜV SÜD have unique, state-of-the-art shock and vibration testing facilities

TÜV SÜD’s vibration testing labs use state-of-the-art equipment to reproduce low and high frequency conditions, and to test products up to 5 tons in accordance with the requirements of MIL STD 810, DEF STAN 00-35, RTCA DO160, BS EN 60068, among other regulations. Any additional test can be added quickly through our flexible schedule.

Our shock testing laboratories have a unique set of facilities designed to test the robustness and fragility of product samples and their packaging. We have several shock machines, a side impact machine, a compression machine, a precision drop tester and bounce facilities.

Furthermore, for long-term mechanical cycling with or without climatic conditions, our experienced engineers have the skills, facilities, and experience to build a solution for almost any testing challenge.
