Sypris Test & Measurement Expands Vibration Testing Services

Published: Wednesday, April 13, 2005 - 22:00

Sypris Test & Measurement recently added an LDS V9 Shaker System to its Orlando test facility. The shaker is designed to test heavy loads at high vibration levels over long periods of time, significantly reducing test time and expense. It can be used to test avionics, military hardware, automotive components, automotive NVH and electronic assemblies. Its sophisticated design provides high-stress testing without putting sensitive payloads at risk.

The high-precision V9 is one of the largest shakers in the world, with a 3 in. stroke and 2,000 lb capacity. Loads can be up to 6 ft. tall and 48 × 48 in. in width and depth. The system’s computer controller can operate random, sine, shock, shock SRS, sine-on-random and random-on-random programs with eight-channel data acquisition.

“The V9 shaker system reflects our continued commitment to meet the growing demand for more rigorous and comprehensive testing, particularly in the military and aerospace fields,” says Kathy Boyd, Sypris Test & Measurement president and CEO.
