Vibration and Shock Testing

TRaC is the perfect partner to assist manufacturers with Shock and Vibration Testing.

We work with manufacturers from the very beginning to try and understand the implications of environmental compliance. Through our Early Stage Qualification (ESQ®) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) services, at the design stage we reduce the risk of product failure by applying our understanding of the environment in which you are looking to operate your product. By using our pre-qualification testing services, we can help you increase the likelihood that your product will pass the testing process on the first attempt and remove the potential for future redesign work and associated costs and delays.

We have a huge range of Vibration and Shock Testing equipment that can reproduce low and high frequency conditions; our range of shakers includes three out of the four commercially available LDS984 shakers in the UK. They specialise in large and challenging tests and are ideally suited for the testing of products with a large footprint, for example, aircraft actuation systems, mobile power generation systems, aircraft landing gear, in-flight refuelling equipment, aircraft motor drive systems, satellite sub-systems and motorway signage.

These vibration testing conditions are representative of environments your products may be subjected to, from micro-switches to aerospace landing gear. We use a wide range of electrodynamic and hydraulic vibration testing systems with standard test frames, to apply dynamic vibration test loads suited to any requirement you may need, including:

  • Vibration and Shock
  • Bench Handling Testing
  • Bounce Testing
  • Seismic Testing

The standards we commonly test to are:

  • RTCA DO 160
  • MIL-STD 810
  • DEF STAN 00-35
  • DEF STAN 08-123
  • BS EN 60068
