AutoShock-II: Automated Shock Test System

ASII

The AutoShock-II ™ is a fully automated series of shock test systems used to measure and identify product fragility levels and evaluate protective packaging. With the simulation of real world shock pulses, including half sine, square wave and sawtooth pulse shapes, as well as impact energy levels, manufacturers can systematically test and optimize product design and packaging. L.A.B. Equipment, Inc.’s fully automated computer controlled shock and data analysis test systems are the critical path in accomplishing this optimization.

SD-Series: Mechanical Shock Machines

SD10CloseUp

The need for products to survive various shock levels in an operating environment requires in-house testing of products during the design and evaluation stages. L.A.B. Equipment, Inc.’s SD-series of mechanical free-fall test systems produces accurate and repeatable half sine, square-wave and sawtooth pulses in accordance with military and industry specifications.

STM5 Shock Test Machine

DSCN0255_wh2_kl

The STM5 has been developed to meet the shock testing requirements of the small components industry. Several machines have been delivered to watch manufacturers in the field of production quality control together with research and development. Test items are mounted on a 150mm cube which allows for testing multiple components to be tested in three axis.This machine is unique in our product line in having a dynamically tuned beam pivoting at one end, this construction allows resonant free testing down to at least 0.3ms. Beam lifting is achieved by a built in pneumatic ram which is then accelerated down allowing the beam to free fall. Through utilisation of timer counters coupled to high precision valves controlled by our IMPALA software, this machine generates highly repeatable shocks at a rate of up to ~60/minute.

STM10P Flat bed shock test machine

stm10P

The STM10P is the smallest of our flat bed shock machines offering cost effective shock testing up to 1400g. Several machines have been delivered to the watch industry and to automobile component suppliers in the field of production quality control together with research and development. Test items are mounted on a 320x250mm aluminium table which can be adapted to interface with quick release platforms for minimum setup time on the production line. Table lifting is achieved by a built in pneumatic ram which is then accelerated down allowing the table to free fall, or accelerated with flexible bands. Through utilisation of timer counters coupled to high precision valves controlled by our IMPALA software, this machine generates highly repeatable shocks at a rate of up to 60/minute.
