Shock and Vibration Testing Services

Shock and vibration testing services are used for testing a wide range of products across many industries. These testing services are used to test mix mode, sinusodial and random vibration as well as gunfire, half sine, sawtooth and more.

Manufacturers often use vibration testing to test automotive components and other products that may be exposed to vibration during transporation to simulate the effect of road conditions. Aerospace/Defense products are also exposed to vibration conditions thus requiring vibration testing to ensure product quality and safety.

CSZ also has the capabilities to combine vibration conditions with temperature and/or humidity.
