Vibration and G-Force Testers
Vibration testers are indispensible for testing the operation of motors, bearings, fans, pumps, rotating machinery, pulleys, mounts and buildings. If unusual vibration is detected it could mean the component is operating improperly or will wear too fast. Vibrations can mean a piece is out of balance or malfunctioning and can save on repair costs down the road. They come in different variations from pen-style vibration meters to single or 4 channel meters, able measure multiple components at once.
Vibration testers are also important in the design and testing of motors, fans, rotating machinery and pumps. An axle that is off balance even by a small amount will have a clear vibration and must be balanced correctly to prevent damage or premature wear.
G-force meters are great for detecting rough handling of a package, container or luggage. Fragile and expensive packages must arrive unharmed. This is a great way for shipping companies and distributors to measure and monitor the g-forces it subjects packages to. This can mean the difference between successful delivery or expensive replacement of broken merchandise.
