Advantages of Mechanical Shock Testing in the Industry
Offering in-house and field testing services, DATASYST works to provide the right mix of resources and expertise to clients with a single point of contact for all of their testing needs.
Mechanical shock testing simulates the forces and environments that a unit under test is exposed to during handling, shipment and/or daily use. Equipment utilized for testing includes electrical, servo-hydraulic systems and mechanical shock machines (for traditional shock testing), impact testers or drop testers.
Three elements that define the profiles for traditional shock testing are:
Shape - there are several variations of standard wave forms such as Half-Sine, Sawtooth, Triangular and Rectangular formations and SRS
Amplitude - which is commonly expressed in g's (the force of gravity is 1 g)
Pulse Width - the time between start and end of the pulse. Commonly expressed in milliseconds (ms)
Impact and Drop Testing aids in determining how a product/packaging resists a determined velocity loading or impact with a surface. Impact testing is performed using pendulum style impact testers and incline impacting equipment. Drop testing utilizes hand drops, quick release hook drops and drop test machines.
