Through our consulting services, we are
continually working with products from the broad array of vendors in the field
of structural, vibration, and fatigue testing. Since our main focus is on the
use of servo-hydraulics rather than electro-dynamics, we have decided to offer
our opinions on the equipment that is available in the servohydraulic testing
Our philosophy at Re:Test is to foster a competitive environment. We work or
have worked with all the various suppliers in different capacities, and when
asked, we recommend the best solution in the industry to meet the needs of the
client. While we might form alliances with vendors from time-to-time, we never
let that stand in the way of being able to provide an objective opinion, since
that is of the highest value to our customers.
This "buyers guide" is just that. It is a guide. Since it is difficult
to make a straight recommendation based on generic requirements, we would be
happy to work with you to evaluate your specific needs, and make a
recommendation that matches those needs. We have never found a situation where
our fee exceeds the amount we have saved our customers.
Since there is no single vendor that does it all (yes even MTS!), you will
inevitably end up purchasing products from several. All too often, we are called
in to test labs, where equipment and software has been purchased, and the
engineers and technicians are having problems with integration. Not only that,
but if I could add-up all the money that has been wasted on purchasing duplicate
and unneeded items, I would have enough money to run a small country!
