Delphi Technical Center Rochester Vibration Laboratory

The Vibration Laboratory at the Delphi Technical Center Rochester (TCR) offers customers efficient and reliable dynamic evaluations and durability studies for a wide variety of products. The lab has conducted studies automotive, military and consumer product manufacturers in:

  • Resonance searches
  • Sine testing
  • Random vibration testing
  • Sine on random testing
  • Random on random testing
  • Shock testing
  • Frequency response testing
  • Time waveform replication testing

The TCR Vibration Laboratory has seven electrodynamic shaker systems; six of the units are coupled with climatic chambers. All shakers feature a unibase system, which offers quick change from vertical to horizontal testing. All shakers are in individual cells, which allows accompanying cycling or monitoring equipment to be located nearby and for customer confidentiality. 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 at a competitive cost. Professional, experienced account management provides customers with single-point contact to streamline coordination.

Delphi's TCR Vibration Laboratory supports customers who do not have in-house testing capabilities, or require "overflow" testing services.
