Intertek recently acquired an ETS Solutions 26,000 lbf (115,655 N) vibration and mechanical shock system that will enable the company to double its existing capacity on high payload testing to up to 1900 lb (862 kg). The shaker is the largest in Intertek’s network and will allow the company to test both heavier components as well as multiple smaller components in a single run. The ability to test heavier and/or multiple components will potentially reduce testing time and ensure the durability of products in both the design and production validation stages. The system is installed at Intertek’s lab in Plymouth, MI.
