Full Vehicle Shaker

Get your test tracks into the lab! Absolutely realistic, reproducible & quiet.

Noise analyses in the moving vehicle on different test tracks are time-consuming and usually quite difficult. With our full vehicle shaker systems you can get a wide variety of test tracks from all over the world into your testing, QM and production areas. Different excitation states due to different road surfaces, speeds and engines are reproduced absolutely realistic and reproducible at the push of a button. A remote tablet also enables operation directly from inside the vehicle.
Selective starting and combination of noise-critical driving conditions, the high simulation quality and the low operating noise of the ALPHA MLB shakers used create ideal conditions for effective noise analyses. By adding a component testing table, it is also possible to test individual modules and components.
You would like to use the system inside a climatic chamber? No problem! The optionally available water cooling and thermal insulation of the ALPHA shakers allows the use of the systems within a temperature range of -40°C to +80°C.
