New Vibrodine Vibra-9001

NEW VIBRODYNE VIBRA-9001

VIBRA-9001 is the first mechanical vibrodyne with linear actuator, designed for applications in civil engineering field, able of generating constant amplitude forcing along with the frequency variation.
VIBRA-9001 was born from the collaboration between EnginLab and DRC and belongs to the family of electrodynamic machines developed and distributed under the LiTeM brand.
The structure of VIBRA-9001 is made entirely of aluminum. This makes it particularly manageable and easy to transport at the structure to be investigated, without the help of machinery lifting and handling equipment, reducing time and installation costs.

The modular masses are set in motion by the linear motor and can be easily placed on the upper tray, allowing the generation of different forcing according to requirements.
Using the RTC 9000-VIBRA Real Time Controller and the SHAKER software tool, it is possible to set the oscillating frequency (in steps or in frequency sweep mode) and the dwell time at desired frequencies.

The VIBRA-9001 linear vibrodyne can control the slide amplitude strokes, thus obtaining constant and appropriate forcing even at low frequencies; which is impossible using normal rotating masses vibrodynes.
Using the Real Time Controller RTC 9000-VIBRA bi-axial (2 indipendent or simultaneous axes) and the SHAKER Software Tool it is possible to control two VIBRODYNES at the same time, by setting the phase between them at will or by making them work independently.

The linear motor is driven by the LiTeM servo-drive EM20 series, included in the kit.
The 4 read-only channels on the Controller allow the acquisition of 4 accelerometers installed on the structure.

VIBRA-9001 is indispensable in all dynamic identification activities with EMA (Experimental Modal Analysis) techniques and in all cases where it is necessary an appropriate and constant forcing even at low excitation frequencies.

RTC 9000

Real time test controller RTC 9000

The RTC 9000 controller range has been developed and assembled in Italy, using the best available technologies; essential to perform precise and reliable mechanical structural tests, allowing for the management of different types of actuators and motors.

The RTC 9000 is a multi-axial controller (expandable up to 4 active axes); it can run static and cyclical tests both in displacement control, force control, aux (+/-10V) channel control and Encoder control; controlling simultaneously all the active axes. Additional 4 read-only analog input channels (synchronous with the active axes) complete the potential of this controller.

The RTC 9000 is the great controller for more complex tests that require the use of multiple simultaneous axes on the same object under test.

The system is configured in pneumatic mode (P) for the management of pneumatic actuators, electric mode (E) for the management of electric actuators or hydraulic mode (H) for the management of hydraulic actuators.

Applications
  • STATIC YIELD/FAILURE TESTING on composite materials and dental implants, etc.;
  • STIFFNESS TESTING on single and assembled components, metal, plastic and composite material products, 3D-printed and biological material products;
  • DYNAMIC TESTING with sine, pulsed square wave with settable duty cycle or constant speed triangle wave (e.g. for characterisation of suspensions/shock absorbers);
  • CONSTANT AMPLITUDE FATIGUE TESTING to determine the life under cyclic/repeated loads for any type of component (Wöhler curves);
  • CONSTANT AMPLITUDE BLOCK FATIGUE TESTING for the determination of the Palmgren-Miner relation and of the actual damage value;
  • VARIABLE AMPLITUDE FATIGUE TESTING using the reproduction/simulation in the laboratory of real world load curves acquired on-site;
  • REPRODUCTION OF LOAD CURVES Defined by the user during design phase, simulation of seismic tests.
