Dynamic, Vibration + Shock Testing

Dynamic

A range of conditions both natural and man made can be simulated under laboratory conditions to subject your product to Vibration, Impact, Shock, Bump, Drop, Topple, Free fall, Squeak and Rattle (equipment in silent mode), achieved using Sinusoidal, Random, Sine on random, Swept sine on random, Gunfire and Shaker induced shock (including SRS).

Dynamic testing can be combined with Climatic conditions (e.g. Temperature and Humidity) to further simulate the expected environmental conditions to which your product will be subjected.

Dynamic tests are performed to either accepted national and international standards or to customer specific requirements. If you are unsure what is required for your target environment, we can help tailor a test plan to suit your unique needs. 

Vibration

IMS Testing Solutions (Abtest) has a variety of vibration testing methods that can reproduce low and high frequency conditions. A combination slip table can also be used to maintain the product under test in its true mounting altitude unlike traditional test methods of rotating the samples through three axis on a cube fixture.

The systems also have the capability to operate in “silent mode” and can be used for Squeak and Rattle testing.

Shock

Products in and out of their packaging can be tested to prove the robustness against Impact, Shock, Bump, Drop & Topple and Free fall.

Examples of standard that we regularly test to:

  • BS EN Series e.g. BS EN 60068
  • BS 3G100
  • DEF STAN 00-35
  • DEF STAN 07-55
  • EN 60948
  • IEC 60068 Series
  • MIL STD 202
  • MIL STD 810
  • MIL STD 883
  • RCTA DO 160
  • National specifications e.g. ASTM, DIN, etc.
  • Company specific specifications e.g. Ford, Jaguar, VW, etc.
