Multi-Axial Simulation Table (MAST) simulates the vibration of real-world environments in the laboratory. Element provides multi-axial vibration testing for a full range of vehicle components and assemblies, delivering the data that automotive engineers need to develop safer, more reliable, and dependable vehicles and their associated components.
A simulation table is an automotive test system specifically designed for the high-frequency testing of vehicle components. It is sometimes also called a Multi-Axis Shaker Table or MAST table.
They can simulate acceleration and displacement outputs and reproduce key data collected on proving grounds, by providing a full six degrees of freedom (6 DOF).
These test systems consist of a hexapod platform with a low resonance table on top. The test system can be used to simulate any kind of vibration in all six degrees of freedom.
The movements of the test system are tightly controlled by a digital test controller.
WHAT APPLICATIONS FOR MULTI-AXIAL SIMULATION TEST?
The Multi-Axial Simulation Table (MAST Table) is applicable for:
Seismic: earthquake testing
Aircraft, vessel, helicopters taking off and landing
Docking of spacecraft
Refueling of aerial tankers.
Simulation of ground, ship or floor movements
Imbalance in loading and unloading and wind
Long-term swaying of the ship
