Shock and vibration testing ensures product performance under extreme conditions. Vibration testing and shock testing are used to simulate in a controlled laboratory environment the extreme conditions that a product may face during use, such as mishandling, dropping, and various modes of shipment.
Shock and vibration testing provides a wealth of benefits, such as:
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.
Depending on your product and its intended use, we will carry out the appropriate shock and vibration tests.
Typical assessments for vibration testing include:
Conditioning of test samples during vibration between +80⁰C and -55⁰C Our shock testing capability include:
We can deliver UKAS accredited vibration testing and shock testing to the following standards:
