The realization of a new soundprouf laboratory area is in progress: Centrotecnica keeps on improving.
A new crane for improving Centrotecnica’s lifting capability has been lately mounted and tested: this new equipment will support our production and laboratory department in their daily activity.
Centrotecnica provides a new service, on request, of slow-motion shooting up to 1000 frames/sec. to observe how mechanical deformations occur during a vibration test (up to 100 Hz), during a shock or when a collision occurs (drop test).
Centrotecnica delivered and installed a new machine called Lo.F.Hi.S (Low Frequency High Stroke and Velocity Shaker) to Catania University in Siracusa.
The machine is capable of time history reproduction from a text file and will be used to study the effect of earthquakes on models of structures.
The machine is particularly interesting for low frequency vibration because it is capable of reproducing low frequency vibration with no distortion.
The machine can be connected to a standard vibration controller to work as an electrodynamic shaker.
– Stroke 286 mm
– Max velocity 2.5 m/s
– Max force 2 kN
– Frequency range 0 – 100 Hz
Centrotecnica delivered a new kind of standard structure coupled with a LAB hydraulic shaker.
The structure function is both expander to allow a large mounting area and cube to allow vertical mounting for the three axis test execution.
This structure combine in one unique item the possibilities of a system with expander and slip table.
– Dimensions: 2200 x 1260 x 1565 mm
– Weight: 1345 kg
– Frequency range: 300 Hz
Centrotecnica is one of most comprehensively equipped and extensive in Europe.
Environmental testing services include shock, vibration, climatic and mechanical testing.
Strongly supported by our experience we keep on growing and enhancing our test house: as first step in 2010 we launched the new facility in Masate; the second step will be the expansion in a full comprehensive headquarter displaced on over then 1000 m2.
The best is yet to come!
