Equipment Requirements for ISTA


Hydraulic Vibration(HV) Systems perform the repetitive bounce, sine sweep, resonance search and dwell, and random vibration tests that help you:

  • Design package systems that survive the distribution environment
  • Identify components susceptible to fatigue failure
  • Reduce package material costs
  • Minimize shipping damage claims
  • Cut warranty expenses
  • Comply with customer/vendor test requirements such as Amazon Series 6 as well as other ISTA test requirements
  • Deliver a BETTER product to your customer!

What Is A Hydraulic Vibration System?

  • An L.A.B. Hydraulic System is a rigid table surface supported and driven by a closed-loop servo controlled hydraulic actuator.
  • The system is capable of producing single axis vibration at controlled levels of displacement, velocity or acceleration throughout a specific range of frequencies.

Standard System Components

  • Vibration Table
  • Actuator/Piston Assembly
  • Hydraulic Power Supply
  • Hydraulic Manifold
  • Servo Valve
  • LAB Motion Controller HSC Servo Controller
  • Lynx™ Digital Vibration Control System
  • 1-G Supports (48” and Larger)

Installation of L.A.B HV Systems

As L.A.B HV Vibration systems are varied in capabilities and intended use, so will the installations. Systems being installed in Asia, the USA or Europe all will have different facility, safety and usability constraints. L.A.B Equipment will guide you through the process to make sure your installation is the best it can be.

Will will guide you through the process giving you the details you need regarding:

  • Flooring Requirements
  • Utility Requirements
  • Spacing and optimum workspace
  • Mounting the equipment
  • Safety requirements
  • Equipment and tools needed by the customer for installing and positioning the equipment

Speak with your local L.A.B partner or L.A.B Equipment directly to get the details you need for your specific equipment and installation.

Typically, customer’s will either install their HV System at floor level or in a “pit”. Depending on the facility, the size of the vibration system, the intended test payload/dimensions and how the test payload will be moved to and from the vibration table.
