Mechanical Shock


Shock testing generally involves subjecting a test component to a "shock pulse" (i.e. a deceleration of specific amplitude and time duration).  This testing is typically conducted by using an electro-dynamic shaker table or placing the part onto the platform of a "drop tower," the platform is then raised to a predetermined height, and then dropped onto an energy absorbing pad to produce the desired shock pulse.  The platform is “guided” throughout the procedure to assure that the results are highly repeatable.
