Sine, Random, Shock? Are you in control?

Vibration Control and Environmental Seminar

We invite you to join us for an informative and educational day covering the basics of environmental testing and vibration control on July 16, 2019 in Cypress, CA.

This interactive seminar, including live demonstrations, will answer questions like:

  • How do control parameters like compression factor, weighting, number of periods, etc affect my data?
  • What types of test setup errors can a ‘selfcheck’ identify before I run my test?
  • What are the latest evolutions in vibration control testing?
  • What is acoustic control?
  • Can a virtual simulation shaker be used to improve my test?

Live demonstrations will be given throughout the seminar.

Registration Closed
