DELAFIELD, Wis. - May 23, 2014 - PRLog -- Shock testing is one of the most dependable methods and engineering applications for testing the integrity of machine-based products. The thermal shock chambers are supplied with a fully programmable controller for complete cycle programming. The chamber has two compartments fitted vertically with the hot chamber at the top and cold chamber underneath. The laboratory will must be able to simulate a variety of shock profiles, shock levels and pulse durations to generate almost all the possible test cases. Most of these shocks are short lived with instant occurrence and disappear with the same speed as they are introduced. The elements of acoustic shock and vibration testing can offer solid information as feedback. From there a business will be able to determine if they have everything under control. If changes need to be made they will be able to understand why. Such testing can offer information about how much noise and how much vibration is offered.

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.
