Modal Shakers

Lightweight Exciters for Experimental Modal Testing

stp modal shaker family product 1Modal shakers and modal shaker kits from The Modal Shop are used in test laboratories around the globe. Offering a complete line of shakers – from miniature vibration shakers to complete modal shaker systems – these solutions are designed for a wide range of modal analysis applications. System force ratings range from 2 lbf (9 N) to 100 lbf (440 N).

Miniature inertial shakers facilitate testing in hard to reach locations. Miniature vibration shakers deliver a high degree of flexibility when testing. The SmartShaker™ Series offers a built-in power amplifier, creating an all-in-one shaker with plug-and-play capabilities for both modal and vibration tests. Modal shakers are designed with a through-hole armature to simplify a common testing challenge: stinger setup and alignment. These shakers are used in applications from component testing to aerospace ground vibration tests.
