How to improve product quality and reliability through vibration qualification testing

Find design issues early with proper validation through testing

Estimated Watching Time: 75 minutes


Improve Product Quality with Vibration Testing

Are you a manufacturer facing repeated product recalls? Are design issues causing delays in the production and delivery of products, and are you looking to understand potential design issues early in development? If yes, then we invite you to attend this webinar that will elaborate on improving the overall reliability and quality of products.

Ensure product quality and reliability

Manufactured products are subject to various environments during their service life that deteriorates their integrity, leading to their eventual breakdown. During development, products must be tested for real-world conditions such as shock, vibration, and temperature to determine if they can function correctly under these conditions and meet the performance requirements for their intended application. Overall, products must be engineered to withstand the environmental stresses they will be exposed to during their intended use.

Manufacturers can identify potential design issues early in the process by conducting vibration qualification testing. This turns around the overall financial performance of the products (and businesses) as manufacturers can realize improved product quality, increased reliability, reduced costs, and increased customer satisfaction. More specifically, vibration qualification testing can validate products for:

  • Durability – understand the mechanical fatigue profile and any weakness that may cause damage over time
  • Functionality – Malfunctions or product performance issues caused by vibrations
  • Safety – risks posed to users and operators due to potential failures
  • Compliance – how products fare against regulatory requirements
  • Reliability – reliability over product lifespan

Simulate different excitation modes

Different types of products face different types of excitation modes. In this webinar, we cover random, shock, and tracked sine dwell tests. The decision-making process for choosing a mode to test depends on the type of vibration that your product will experience. If you identify your product experiences random shocks and bumps, a random test is likely the best way to test. If your product encounters harmonic vibrations, then a sine sweep test will provide better data to make decisions for the design of your product.
