Vibration Testing Services
Vibration testing is a method of testing to ensure that products meet durability, performance, and most importantly, safety standards. Real world conditions cause vibration. The three areas of vibration are structure born, fluid born, and air born. Within these three areas’ we use the source, path, and receiver model. First, we look for the source of the vibration. Next, we study the path of the vibration. This is how the vibration travels through the structure. And finally the receiver. The receiver is the person using the product. This type of testing has many applications. Common applications include quality/durability testing for: automotive vehicles and parts, manufacturing plants, aerospace, material engineering departments, research/development, and more.
The engineers at JTL America offer cutting edge vibration testing services as well as a variety of other industrial testing solutions to ensure your product meets all necessary quality and safety standards for your industry. We possess the equipment, experience, certifications, and expertise to adequately test products against realistic environmental conditions as well as various vibration frequencies.
