Featured Products

Tensor 18kN™

The Tensor 18kN™ expands the design of the small and more compact Tensor 900 to a size more practical for the typical user. The system is still designed to be over-determined, and uses twelve custom made ED shakers for excitation out to 2,000 Hz. However, the larger design incorporates twelve individual 900 lbf RMS shakers to drive a 30 inch square table. With four shakers in each axis, this system produces 3,600 lbf RMS per axis, and has a bare table moving mass of nominally 430 lbm. The Tensor 18kN™ represents cutting edge technology in multi-axis testing and incorporates custom oil cooled ED shakers with an integrated, air isolated and highly damped reaction mass capable of 12g peak Sine (bare table)and 9g RMS (bare table) Random acceleration.

TE-900™ 

TE-900™ is a fully contained multi-axis vibration test system capable of precise control of all six degrees of freedom through a 5 kHz bandwidth. The system can reproduce real world vibration environments by simultaneously exciting all three linear translations, as well as all three rotations, to a frequency level never before achieved. This unprecedented performance has been made possible through the use of Team Corporation’s expertise in hydrostatic bearing design and multi-axis system engineering. Team Corporation´s addition to the TENSOR™ Family of Multi-Axis Test Systems provides unmatched performance in high-frequency, simultaneous excitation.

Slip Tables

T-Film Slip Tables

Team’s unique T-Film bearing system offers the rugged overturning moment capacity of the Team hydrostatic bearings combined with the full low pressure oil support of a granite or journal bearing oil film type slip table. This table system is assembled from a number of patented modular T-Film bearings. Each bearing measures 12″ x 12″ (300mm x 300mm) and allows the table to be configured to the customer’s test article size and load requirements. The use of multiple bearings to completely support and guide the slip plate will offer excellent dynamic stability and damping for better test results.With a standard stroke limit of 2.5 inches (62.5 mm) and available stroke of up to 12 inches (300mm), Team T-film bearings will work with all modern long stroke shaker systems.

Head Expanders

Team conventional and guided head expanders are expertly designed to offer the best dynamic response at the lowest mass and weight. Conventional head expenders are available in standard sizes of 24″, 36″, 40″, 48″, 60″ and 72″ (60cm, 92cm, 101cm, 121cm, 152cm and 183cm) and in a variety of custom sizes to fit your specific application. All conventional head expanders are hand crafted from aluminum or magnesium to fit your shaker requirements.
