Vibrations Test

2018 brought great innovation to Intek: the realization and implementation of a testing area dedicated to vibration tests.

Much like the realization of the metrological area, a methodical approach supported by our staff’scompetence and desire for constant improvement allowed the implementation and immediate accreditation of ACCREDIA for the testing of sinusoidal, random and shock vibrations.

Particular praise was made for the way in which INTEK assessed the measurement uncertainties, using Monte Carlo numerical methods (the method will be the subject of future publication in a sector magazine).

In the constant quest of excellence in service, INTEK has purchased a high-speed video camera as well as acquiring software for modal analysis, in order to assist clients in the difficult task of creating test fixtures.

On the left are details of recent test results.

The world of physical tests is extremely varied, INTEK is specialized in the execution of climatic tests with variation of temperature and humidity with suitable climatic chambers.

The strong point of INTEK is not simply completing the conditioning according to Norma (most of which accredited ACCREDIA), but assist the client in all the necessary set-ups in order to evaluate, when required, the correct functioning of the objects undergoing testing. In addition, INTEK realizes custom measurement systems using the large instrumental park and software such as Labview.
