Shaker Systems

MB Dynamics provides shakers and amplifiers for general purpose vibration testing spanning the force range from 100N (25 lbs force) to 22kN (5,000 lbs. force). MB’s line of PM-Series Shakers uses permanent magnet technology and the voice coil principle to create vibration. These shakers are heavy-duty of a robust design that have operated for end-users for 10, 25 and even 40 years! The shakers come in five different sizes with peak sine force ratings of 100N, 200N, 500N, 1000N and 2000N or 25, 50, 100, 250 or 500 lbf. The C40HP shaker outputs 22kN or 5,000 lbs force peak and is part of the legacy of C-Series shakers that helped found the electrodynamic vibration test equipment industry.

The PM25, PM50, PM100 and PM250 shakers are powered by either the MB500VI or MB1000VI amplifiers. The PM500 and C40 are powered by selections from the P-Series amplifier family. MB can provide MB Millenium Hawk vibration controllers, horizontal moving tables, slip tables, vibration fixtures, accelerometers, and applications know-how to assist in the implementation of a vibration test turnkey installation.

Because MB shakers including the C10, C90 and C150 are known to last for decades, end-users have relied on MB to upgrade these shakers to strokes of 50mm p-p, replace with modern amplifiers, and add vibration controllers to further extend the useful life of the shakers. MB willingly supports an end-users continued use of MB shakers for years into the future. Download the Data Sheets to see all that’s available.
