Vibration Testing for Quality Assurance
Vibration testing is a complex method of testing used to determine an object’s durability. This method of testing involves exposing an object to specific vibration profile within a controlled testing environment. These vibration profiles mimic actual conditions the object will face during use.
Common applications for vibration testing include: testing automotive parts prior to use, testing aerospace components prior to flight, and other applications that require this form of safety validation. In short, vibration testing is a necessity for products that face these conditions and deal with user safety.
The engineers at JTL America offer industry leading vibration testing services as well as a variety of other industrial testing solutions to ensure products meet necessary quality and safety standards. We possess the equipment, experience, and expertise to adequately test products against realistic environmental conditions, including a wide range of vibration frequencies.
