The growth of Vibration Testing

The use of vibration in Environmental Stress Screening (ESS) has grown exponentially. In the past only used for military applications, today it is applied across all sectors, even commercial electronics, as a means of establishing operational limits and increasing product reliability. Vibration testing is used to determine the capability of a product to resist dynamic loads without losing critical functional or structural integrity under specified loads.

CentraTEQ Ltd are the exclusive UK representatives for ETS Solutions, a major force in the test industry offering a wide range of high performance vibration testing equipment to a global base of customers at a price that is affordable. CentraTEQ is able to provide a complete vibration system package to include an ETS Shaker, a vibration controller for test profiling control, an accelerometer for signal feedback to the vibration controller and a signal conditioner to provide a current source for the accelerometer.

ETS Solutions shaker systems come in in five complete ranges from 20 Newton to 500 kN (440 lbf to 151,000 lbf), as well as digital switching power amplifiers, slip tables of all shapes and sizes and custom engineered head expanders and fixtures. All systems are designed to meet the requirements of endurance testing, a test environment typical in the automotive industry. All systems comply with international standards including MIL-STD, ASTM, IEC, ISO, BS, RTCA and European CE standards.
