Extreme Temperature Shaker Table*

PAMI operates a 4′ x 4′ Thermotron Vert_ShakerDSX-8000 vertical shaker table in environmental chambers capable of -50ºC to +60ºC. This table extends PAMI’s existing vibration simulation capability well beyond that found for land applications allowing aeronautical applications at extreme temperatures. It’s perfect for testing the behavior of composite materials at extreme temperatures.

The Vertical Shaker Table provides:

  • Force Rating (Sine Peak & Random RMS) – 35.6 kN (8,000 lbf)
  • Shock vs. Load Rating (11 msec, half sine shock pulse)
    • 30 g: 381 kg (30 g: 840 lb)
    • 50 g: 192.8 kg (50 g: 425 lb)
    • 100 g: 45.3 kg (100 g: 100 lb)
  • Maximum Velocity 3.68 m/s (145 ips)
  • Continuous Velocity 2.54 m/s (100 ips)
  • Displacement (peak to peak) 5 cm (2 in)
  • Frequency Range 5-3,000 Hz
  • A versatile mounting surface for attaching diverse test components
  • Precision repetitive testing
  • Complex real-time testing
  • Component durability testing
  • Vibration and harshness testing to simulate components rubbing together or vibrating
  • Accelerated product development
  • Dynamic response analysis
  • Computer model verification

Vertical Shaker Applications
