Centrifuges, which serve as acceleration testing machines, are engineered for subjecting specimens to G-Loads. These machines utilize modular drive assemblies derived from a series of established test instruments. Centrifuges are available in two configurations i.e. Belt-drive Centrifuges and Direct-drive Precision Centrifuges. The primary axis is propelled by a direct-drive brushless torque motor and is supported by precision angular contact bearings.
A robust boom, affixed with mounting plates at each end, extends from the drive shaft. It is imperative to balance the boom prior to conducting any tests. This balancing process is facilitated by retracting the fixation pinions, allowing the boom to function as a balance. The surrounding shroud, composed of rolled steel, serves to minimize aerodynamic drag and safeguard the operator.
