Treo - Mechanical shock
Abrupt stress occurs on every product. The reasons for these mechanical shocks are various and sometimes underestimated. The most common and for every product applicable reason is the transport. During the transport the falling off of packed products, their ungentle deposit or potholes on the street can lead to massive mechanical impulses. During the operation of the devices the position or the installation circumstances can cause high strains as well. A loud speaker in a car door is one example: every “door slamming” generates a mechanical shock. So there are in every environment and in every stage of the product lifecycle mechanical shocks, which can lead to a failure of a product, if not tested earlier in the development of the product.
Do you know all possible shock strains, which affect your product? How does your device react to these kinds of strain?
Treo carries out for you shock tests with different parameters. Our electro dynamical shaker is able to simulate half sinus-shaped, saw tooth-shaped and trapezoid-shaped impulses with arbitrary accelerations and shock durations. For accelerations that are expected to be on a high level, as is the case in the military field or aerospace, we use a hydraulic shock table.
