‘Impact Testing’ is used to measure natural frequencies of objects; in the case of machining, this applies to the machine & tool as well as the workpiece setup.
- An accelerometer is connected to the tool tip
- Impact the hammer across the accelerometer to make a measurement
- The Data Acquisition Card then reads the input/output values of the measurement
- Laser Displacement Sensors may be used in place of Accelerometers if needed
