Slip Tables


Slip Tables

We provide the T-Film Bearing System, offering the rugged overturning moment capacity of the Team hydrostatic bearings combined with the full oil support of oil film type slip tables.

This slip table system is constructed from multiple modular T-Film bearings. Each bearing allows the table to be accurately configured to the customers test article size and load requirements. The design of the T-Film bearing and the direct load path from the slip plate to the base is much sturdier than other guidance systems.

The use of numerous bearings completely support and guide the slip plate and offer outstanding dynamic stability, damping and better test results. With a standard stroke limit of 2.50 inches the bearings will work with all modern long stroke shaker systems, and longer stroke systems have been made and are available for hydraulic shaker applications.

Vertical Vibration Systems


Vertical Vibration Systems

The Team vibration test system is a high performance, versatile and cost effective testing system. The Team system has been developed specifically for vibration testing and is particularly advantageous for vibration tests requiring high force, long stroke or very low frequency capability. With the capability of sine, random, sine on random, random on random, or resonant search & dwell, the Team system will provide consistent, reliable test results year after year.

With the modular line of components, Team can provide you with a system that is best tailored to your test requirements. The actuator force, stroke and velocity are optimized to provide the highest frequency response within your budget constraints.

The air isolated seismic base will allow the system to be used on existing floors without modification, while the ultra low frequency isolators allow testing to very low frequencies.

The Team Horizontal vibration test system is a high performance, versatile, and cost effective testing system. The Team system has been developed specifically for vibration testing and takes advantage of the T-Film™ Slip Table for horizontal test article guidance and support.

 

With the modular line of components, Team can provide you with a system that is best tailored to your test requirements. The actuator force, stroke and velocity are optimized to provide the highest frequency response within your budget constraints.

Team horizontal systems are designed to work with almost any off the shelf controller and offer the full spectrum of sine, random, sine on random, random on random, or resonant search and dwell control.

Vibration Testing


Vibration testing, whether employing a sinusoidal input, random input or replication of a deterministic waveform has proven to be a critical step in the successful development of new equipment. Traditionally, vibration tests have been conducted by sequentially applying uniaxial excitation to test articles along three orthogonal axes, using a linear shaker and rotating the test load after each test. Figure 1.0 shows a typical horizontal system with an electrodynamic shaker driving a fixture supported by hydrostatic linear bearings. Two methodologies have evolved from such testing. The first is an effort to emulate the characteristics of actual field conditions. Several standards and recommended practices have been produced that attempt to envelop the spectral peaks of specific environments.

Vibration Test Equipment


Vibration Test Equipment

Team Corporation has been a major supplier to the Aerospace market of sophisticated and highly functional vibration test equipment for several decades. Our core competency of custom system design relying on a disciplined engineering approach to solving difficult vibration system challenges has resulted in the development of a number of unique and effective system designs. One example of these system designs is the NASA Plum Brook Mechanical Vibration Facility, the largest vibration test system in the world. But however large or small, Team strives to provide the optimum combination of performance and value.
