A six degrees of freedom shaking table is a powerful tool for earthquake simulation and vibration testing. It allows engineers and researchers to replicate the complex motion patterns that occur during earthquakes or other vibration events, such as those experienced by electronic components during transportation or use.
The six degrees of freedom refers to the ability of the table to move in six different directions: up/down, left/right, forward/backward, and pitch, roll, and yaw. By controlling the stroke, acceleration, frequency, and specimen mass, researchers can simulate a wide range of vibration conditions and study the response of their test specimens.
Inova, as a manufacturer of these test rigs, can design and build customised shaking tables based on the specific needs of their clients. This ensures that the testing is tailored to the particular requirements of the industry, product, or component being studied.
