Vibration and Shock Testing is performed to validate the reliability, performance and structural integrity of a device during its transportation and useful life, avoiding life failure in EEE systems in space. Vibration Testing mimics the conditions such as the one during a rocket launch. For instance, excessive deformations and accelerations (g-loads) experienced by assembled-system parts cause heavy damage in connectors, surface mounted devices (SMD), printed circuit boards (PCBs) and similar electrical components. These tests must be carried out according to different specifications depending on the application areas.

Alter Technology is a high qualified laboratory in Mechanical Tests. With them, you can comply with customer qualification requirements, improve your product reliability, estimate life expectancy and perform package testing.

Experience

The team of engineers working in our vibration laboratory has experience in:

  • Design and analysis of the necessary tools for the fixation of components to the shaker platform to ensure that the tool does not introduce disturbances to the test due to its resonance frequencies.
  • Analysis and testing of different types of vibration tests: sine, random and shock (with SRS table and shaker).
  • Additional capabilities include monitoring electrically of the device to complete the functionality during the test.
