Vibration Testers are available in single-/dual-axis models.

Press Release Summary:

Quake series of multi-axis, servo-controlled, vibration-inducing machines include single- and dual-axis models as well as 3-axis and up to 6-axis versions. Able to be used with products from small parts to automobiles, machines test effects of vibration caused during shipment, handling, and regular product use. Windows-controlled machines feature vibration speeds up to 300 Hz, displacements of ±50 mm, and support for loads of up to 300,000 N with torque of up to 40,000 Nm.

Original Press Release:

NEW: The Quake Is Now Available in Single or Dual Axis!

Kokusai, a leading international supplier of vibration measurement equipment, is introducing their latest product. The "Quake" series of multi-axis, servo-controlled, vibration inducing machines that can "shake" product ranging from very small parts up to complete automobiles. This product line is used for testing the effects of vibration caused during shipment, handling and regular product use. Packaging strength, protection, and durability, product resistance to scratching and damage, and any other kind of vibration damage can be simulated and the final product evaluated. From this evaluation, warranty costs, product reject costs and even shipping insurance costs can be reduced.

The product line ranges from single axis shakers to tri-axis movement. Some models are capable of 6-axis movement which adds pitch, roll, and yaw. Vibration speeds can range up to 300Hz. Displacements of +-50mm (+- 200mm for seismic waveform) are possible on some testers. Some models target loads of up to 300,000N with torsion torque of up to 40,000Nm. The multi-axis machines have one table which eliminates time consuming and expensive multiple changeovers. These Windows controlled machines can run varying programs mimicking the actual transportation or other vibration hazards the customer's product may see during their shipment to and use in the market. A data logging system can be utilized recording real-world forces from the customer's current transportation methods and routes and feed that information back into the software for real-time simulation. The low inertia servo controlled technology eliminates the problems associated with hydraulics and allows for faster and more exact movements combined with cost savings due to reduced power consumption and environmental concerns associated with elimination of hydraulic oil waste.

The Vertical Impact System utilizes control test waveforms that are applied to the test. Additionally, an ultrahigh vibration line of Electro-Dynamic Vibration machines have a capability of frequencies as high as 3,000Hz.
