Medium-Force (M-Series) Air-Cooled Shakers are a type of vibration test equipment used to simulate mechanical vibrations and test the response of materials, components, and systems to those vibrations. These shakers are air-cooled, meaning they do not require water or other coolants for operation.

M-Series shakers typically consist of a vibration table, an electromagnetic drive, and an air-cooling system. The electromagnetic drive generates mechanical vibrations at various frequencies and amplitudes, and the vibration table is used to support the test specimen during testing.

M-Series shakers are often used in applications where higher force and acceleration levels are required, such as testing larger components or systems. They are commonly used in automotive and aerospace testing, as well as in research and development applications.

M-Series shakers may be equipped with various types of control systems, including closed-loop feedback control systems and digital signal processors, to provide precise control over vibration parameters and ensure accurate and repeatable test results.

Overall, Medium-Force (M-Series) Air-Cooled Shakers are essential tools for engineers, researchers, and quality control professionals who need to evaluate the performance and reliability of products and components under various types of mechanical stress.
