ALPHA Shakers

ALPHA shaker systems – Compact, light, powerful & quiet

During the development of our new ALPHA shaker systems, we incorporated the requirements and ideas from a wide variety of projects and rethought “electrodynamic shakers” from scratch. True to the motto “Can’t be done” is simply not in our vacabulary!
The result is compact, lightweight shakers with very low operating noise. Friction-free guidance of the moving element, integrated laser displacement sensors, automatic load compensation, quiet temperature-controlled fans and the extremely robust and low-maintenance design make our ALPHAs the ideal shakers for the most diverse testing tasks – especially for Squeak & Rattle tests, but not limted to….
For quiet continuous operation even with high excitation forces, the ALPHA vibration exciters can optionally be equipped with noiseless water cooling. Noisy cooling fans are a now a thing of the past!
The thermal insulation of the systems and a combined heating/cooling aggregate allow continuous operation in a climatic chamber in a temperature range from -30°C to +80°C.
Of course there are extensive system accessories for our ALPHAs such as trunnion base, horizontal and vertical vibration tables, amplifiers with remote control from PC or tablet and much more.
