Vibration testing and earthquake resistance

Tri-axial vibration tests on Light Multi Axial Shaker - LiMAS

with combined environmental simulation IABG Fatigue Strength Laboratory


With the multi-axis 6DOF vibration test bench LiMAS it will be possible to realize accelerations of up to 130 m/s² within a frequency range of 0.5 to 200 Hz and a maximum load of 1000 kg. The integrated climatic chamber allows a wide variety of environmental conditions, as these may significantly influence the product behavior.

Our fatigue strength laboratory is DIN EN ISO 17025 accredited, enabling us to meet and provide the highest quality standards to our customers.
