Vibration testing

Ensure your new design will survive its intended environment. Vibration testing at Nemko pays off by reducing field return costs through improved product reliability.

Vibrations from a ships engine or from driving a vehicle on a bumpy road are examples of reasons for fatigue that causes failure in mechanical and electrical systems.

Vibration occur in:

  • Routine shipping and handling
  • Transportation
  • Mounting of your equipment on a ship’s bulkhead, in mechanical contact with engines etc.
  • Normal operational environments of ground vehicles and aircrafts

Nemko’s vibration testing facilities contains 3 electrodynamic shakers where the largest provide a continuous force in excess of 100 kN for the most used vibration testing events – sine and random vibration analysis.

We can combine several systems to simulate your anticipated vibration testing conditions, like mechanical vibration combined with various atmospheric/climatic conditions.

The effects of vibration over a wide range of frequency and acceleration levels can be simulated according to IEC 60068-series.
