BWS WS-Z30 Earthquake Shaking Table

An earthquake shaking table is an indispensable device in structural earthquake resistance, natural frequency measurement, vibration analysis.

SKU: N/A Categories: ,


There are three types of Earthquake Shaking Tables: hydraulic type, mechanical type, an electromagnetic type. An earthquake shaking table is an indispensable device in structural earthquake resistance, natural frequency measurement, vibration analysis. The cost of a shaking table depends on its size, performance, and the corresponding supporting equipment. Generally, it costs several hundred thousand to over a million us dollars to build one shaking table and the maintenance costs are high. Therefore, it may be too costly for many institutions and new institutions of science and engineering to buy such equipment. Even they could afford and purchase such equipment, it would still be difficult

and unsuitable for it to be used for general teaching purposes. The “WS-Z30 earthquake shaking table system” produced by our company is specially designed for teaching and training in institutions of science and engineering. It has nearly the same features and exactly the same content of experiment of a large vibration table but with much lower costs. It is very suitable for teaching and training. It enables students to study through experiments, to understand and master the methods needed in vibration experiments, thus laying the foundation of their future involvement for the construction of medium or large vibration tables.

In addition to teaching and training, this system can also be used for the vibration assessment test of small devices, such as precision electronic equipment, handheld devices, computer hard drives, sensors, MEMS sensors, and other equipment. Another usage of the system is the calibration of sensitivity and frequency response curves of other sensors as long as a standard accelerometer (such as B&K’s accelerometer for calibration) is available. Sensor calibration is necessary for the study of sensors, engineering tests, field tests, vibration monitoring, etc.
