  • Sine on random testing
  • Shock testing
  • Mechanical impact testing
  • Laser vibrometry

The CTCM Vibration Laboratory has three electrodynamic shaker systems; one unit is coupled with a climatic chamber. All shakers feature a unibase system, which offers quick change from vertical to horizontal testing. Cycling or monitoring equipment can be located nearby for data acquisition during vibration.

Testing is conducted by a highly trained and experienced staff that understands the challenges facing manufacturers today. Laboratory services are conducted to meet individual customer schedules and at a competitive cost. Professional, experienced account management provides customers with single-point contact to streamline coordination.
