Shock and Vibration Testing

Ensure product performance under extreme conditions

Ensure product performance under extreme conditions

Simulate the extreme conditions that a product may face during use

Shock and vibration testing simulate conditions such as mishandling, dropping, and various modes of shipment.

Testing Helps You:

  • Comply with relevant regulations
  • Demonstrate that your product can withstand use in the 'real world', and will remain in good condition
  • Avoid costly damage during transport
  • Reduce the number of returns and defect product

Our shock & vibration test Labs

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.

The testing process

Depending on your product and its intended use, we will carry out the appropriate shock and vibration tests.

Typical assessments for vibration testing include: sinusoidal, random, sine on random, swept sine on random, gunfire, shaker induced shock, including SRS, bump, hydraulic and electromagnetic shaker frequency range of 1Hz to 3kHz with up to 150kN of thrust.

Conditioning of test samples during vibration between +80⁰C and -55⁰C Our shock testing capability include:

  • Free fall
  • Bump
  • Drop topple and stability
  • Bounce
  • Static load
  • Compression
  • Bending
  • Racking

We can deliver accredited vibration testing and shock testing to the following standards: 

  • MIL STD 810
  • RCTA DO 160
  • DEF STAN 00-35
  • DEF STAN 07-55
  • DEF STAN 08-123
  • BS 3G100
  • BS EN 60068
  • IEC 60945
