Westpak Deploys 2 New Vibration Systems

January 9, 2013

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Westpak announces the addition of two new Electro-Hydraulic Vibration Systems and a newly designed servo controller that can offer much tighter controls during vibration testing. These systems provide precision control of low frequency band that is difficult to manage in the distribution environment. It also produces a clean vibration spectrum for ASTM and ISTA profiles – even out to 300Hz. The larger system, with a spacious 60″x90″ expander head, is driven by a 22 KIP hydraulic actuator.

As regulatory agency requirements become more stringent, clients require larger sample sizes and shorter turnaround time. These regulations result in more expensive tests.

“In order to meet these requirements while keeping cost and lead time to a minimum, it was imperative we build this new system. In the past we had to conduct multiple runs to accommodate the large sample sizes. This new vibration system will have the capacity to accommodate these quantities in a cost effective and efficient manner with shorter lead times. Quicker test throughput, with quicker results, will help clients make better product and packaging decisions,” states Hugh Davis, San Jose VP.
