Design for vibration environments

Introduction to design for vibration

We design for vibration environments. We engineer and improve products, instrumentation, machinery and equipment. All to operate reliably and robustly in their vibration environments.

Where are vibration environments present?

Vibration environments are ever present on man-made machines. Man-made machines like cars, off-highway vehicles, planes etc. Vibration environments falls under Extreme Environments.

It is important to understand the mechanisms at work when a product is exposed to vibration. Yes, isolation or anti vibration mounts can be used in the mounting system.

What about AV mounts?

But not all customers will permit the use of anti-vibration mounts. AV mounts are not always effective, especially with broad bandwidths and when frequencies are very low.

We conduct vibration testing to prove that products can operate reliably in these environments.

This is of particular interest!

If you are one of the following:

  • Manufacturers of products for vibration environments

  • People that require vibration testing

  • Products that are failing in the vibration environments

  • Product designers who are seeking vibration expertise

Please give us a call. We will gladly advise you.

Why do you need this service?

Products and structures can experience resonances and fatigue when operating in vibration environments. Resonances can be detrimental to the health of the product and cause failure. So designing for these conditions are mandatory.

We are very experienced in designing products for vibration environments. We have conducted certification testing for aeroplanes for over 15 years and have improved designs to meet the criteria. Especially when in involves electronic components failing during vibration testing.
