SignalForce – Air Cooled Shakers

Air-cooled shakers are the workhorses for many component testing applications such as automotive assemblies and consumer electronics equipment. The Data Physics range includes many shaker models with axial guidance bearings and 2 inches (50mm displacement) and our largest air-cooled model offers 2.5 inches (63.5mm) continuous displacement.
All cooling blowers for these shakers include noise reduction silencers, all models feature high levels of efficiency.
Data Physics’ range of small shakers is in use all over the world. Some have even been taken into space for special experiments under zero gravity conditions. Applications have included medical research, electronic component testing, materials analysis, automotive component testing, tyre balancing and actuator applications for antenna positioning using low axial stiffness special suspension units.
Data Physics’ range of air-cooled shakers have found application testing in Formula 1 racing cars, mobile telephones, health & safety type approvals, materials analysis, avionics systems and electronic sub-systems testing. These shakers provide high lateral and torsional stiffness to provide maximum stability and support. This produces high performance and low distortion levels.

Air Cooled Shakers
Air cooled shakers are lower cost, more versatile and easier to install and maintain than water cooled shakers. Air cooled shakers are workhorses for sine, random, shock, transient mixed mode and long time history replication applications. High displacement options are available for requirements such as transportation testing and classical shock testing. High lateral and torsional stiffness ensure maximum stability and support.

• Force outputs from 2 lbf (9 N) to 13,500 lbf (60 kN)
• Axial guidance bearings
• Up to 3 inches (76.2 mm) of peak-peak displacement from 3,000 lbf (13.3 kN)
• Special suspension options for structural test
• Automatic load support and armature centering
• Rigid trunnion mounting – allows for locking the shaker down to a seismic base   for maximum performance at very low frequencies
• Lin-E-Air suspension – ideal isolation for preventing vibration transmission into the   facility floor
