AutoShock II™ Automated Shock Test Systems

Description

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 and 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.

AutoShock-II™

Standard features

  • State-of-the-art, PC-based control system with Windows-based, intuitive Remote Control interface
  • Advanced, integrated Shock Drop Calculator translates shock parameters – waveform, acceleration, duration – into equipment settings (drop height, square wave pressure, etc.)
  • Precision guidance system with balanced hydraulic lift cylinders
  • High performance cast or welded aluminum table designs provide optimum stiffness and waveform fidelity
  • Closed-loop height and pressure controls provide optimal waveform repeatability
  • Table sizes to 152 x 152cm (60” x 60”)
  • Up to 2000 kg (4,400 lbs.) payload capacities available
  • Low profile design minimizes overall system height

Optional features

  • Low profile, dual waveform (half-sine and square wave) shock pulse programmers
  • Half-sine elastomer module kits
  • Terminal peak sawtooth programmers
  • Low velocity impulse kits
  • High velocity impulse kits
  • Dual mass shock amplifiers
  • Data acquisition and analysis systems
  • Safety mat interlock systems
  • Enlarged table sizes
  • Floor plate/installation kits
