Product CategoryANCO Product DescriptionApplications

Servo-Hydraulic Shake Tables


1-, 2-, 3-, or 6-axes for testing large and high mass payloads; qualify equipment to required standards (IEEE-344, RIM testing, Bellcore GR-63, earthquake standards, and transportation vibration standards) Earthquake, shock, and automotive, rail and aircraft transportation. This is useful in university research and meeting industry standards related to power plant equipment, electronics, telecommunications, and freight/transportation industry standards

All-electric shake Tables


Small to medium test items; low noise; no high-pressure hydraulic components, no oil leaks or oil disposal; low maintenance; and higher frequency rangeseismic, aerospace, and transportation applications
Sinusoidal Shake TablesPayloads from 0.01 to 10 tons and have frequency ranges between 1 and 300 Hz. Vertical, horizontal, angular or orbital vibration directions.economical testing of products on the assembly line or in the test laboratory
Public Education Shake TablesPublic awareness, engineering issues related to earthquake safety of furnished rooms, suspended ceilings.universities, science museums, emergency planning and education organizations

Motion Platforms


large linear and angular table displacements (surge, heave, sway, pitch, roll, and yaw), electric or hydraulic actuator-driven and have 1 to 6 DOFsimulates ship and aircraft motion and the long period effects of earthquakes.
Eccentric Mass Vibratorsfield-portable systems, actual dynamic properties is used to validate and improve analytical models, reveal margins unjustifiable by analysis alone, determine the source of vibrationsuniversities and research laboratories to test dams, boiler structures, nuclear power plant containments, bridges and internal equipment, equipment, foundations, offshore oil platforms, ships, stacks, floors, office buildings, isolated structures, and storage tanks. 

Impulse Ambient Testing


four HEAVE models available with load capacities varying from 2 to 16 tons; IMPULSE testing system, for even measurement of ambient vibrations.

HEAVE: “snapback testing” to excite and study the dynamics of structures;

IMPULSE: studying structures too large to be tested on a shake table or in a lab. pneumatic-driven hammer impacting a floor-mounted anvil to create an impulsive force



Accurately scale models of structures embedded in soil by scaling time and acceleration in proportion to the geometric scale factor 

geodynamic phenomena for soil-structure interaction, embankment failure, and nonlinear soil behaviour

Vibration Mitigation Systems


pipework vibration control hardware; vibration isolation bases (GERB and THK)protection of critical equipment and building structures
Quasi Static Testing SystemsComputer controlled servo-hydraulic multi-actuator testing systemsAllows fatigue testing, quasi-static testing including Pseudo-Dynamic Testing (PST)
Specialty Testing Systemsspecial and unique testing requirements used in a variety of industries; electrodynamic vibratorsMaterial test machines, fatigue/yield tests, environmental chamber for life cycle tests, nuclear steam generator tube condition-monitoring probe
