Sine Burst testing at CENTROTECNICA's Lab
"Sine Burst (SB) Testing is used for strength testing of aerospace hardware as an alternate to static pull and centrifuge tests.
The main advantage is that testing can be implemented while hardware is on the shaker for other tests.
It also imposes a lower number of cycles on the hardware compared with a sine dwell or sweep, and is particularly suitable for relatively stiff components or electronics boxes, instruments, or spacecraft.
Identified risks can be mitigated by best practices."

SATELLITE TESTED AT OUR LABORATORY
We are pleased to announce the achievement of a technical highly-prestigious result for our Test House in the vibration testing field: the first test performed on a entire satellite in launch configuration!
CENTROTECNICA hosted the D-Orbit team of technicians who managed the satellite set-up and check-up of its conditions after each test phase.
The tests along horizontal axis were performed on a customized RT slip table by CENTROTECNICA. A great result for our most popular slip table and a great advantage for space testing since it is an oil free table model.
