Barely noticeable, yet simulatable: vibration during transport


Vibrations are minimal impacts that affect a product. They naturally accompany any transport, as they are triggered by the moving means of transport. It is common knowledge that these shocks can affect the functionality or quality of products: Bubble formation in liquids or, quite the opposite: lack of carbon dioxide at the destination. Switches and release mechanisms can be damaged, free-hanging device components can even break off.

Surely you can still think of an individual possible damage for your product. For this reason, we test your packaging on our shaker with simulated vibrations, we really shake it: repeatable, accelerated and well documented. The LAB shaker can test up to 1.35 tons vertically, depending on the test program. The UD-Shaker is particularly suitable for environmental simulations: it offers both vertical and horizontal testing.

Variety in the test lab: shock, random, sinusoidal testing

We offer our vibration tests in different variants: Shock, Random and Sinusoidal testing. The Random test method means that a noise function tests the sample over a given test intensity and frequency width.

Sine tests map harmonic oscillations and simulate the path from functional product to fatigue failure. If a single point is loaded over and over again, then it will fatigue, and may break. With sinusoidal testing, it is important to know that it does a lot of damage to products and packaging in the resonant range. When excited outside the resonance range, sinusoidal vibrations are many times less dangerous for products and packaging.

Strokes with different intensity – but the identical result

Which of these three test variants meets your requirements? We will advise you comprehensively, because: it is important that there is one result at the end of our test procedures. Namely, that your products, loading units and packaging arrive at their destination free of defects. And that even and despite the fact that they have been jolted along the way.
