Shock and vibration tests

The AIT Austrian Institute of Technology has many years of know-how as an independent testing laboratory for shock and vibration tests and environmental simulations accredited according to ÖVE/ÖNORM EN ISO/IEC 17025. Using two electrodynamic shakers in combination with or without a climatic chamber, tests are successfully performed for electronic and electrical components, devices, machines and systems as well as superstructures for vehicle parts. We advise our customers in the selection of test methods, offer competent and customer-oriented testing and issue accredited test certificates.
