Multi Axial Simulation Table (MAST)

WESTEST operates a 1.5 m (5 ft) x 2.13 m (7 ft) Multi-axial Simulation Table (MAST) capable of developing six degree of freedom motion to produce a number of test excitation methods that extend the capabilities of WESTEST vibration simulation equipment. The table is used in the lab to replicate a true, accurate, accelerated simulation of the real-world environment.

MAST Capabilities

  • Six degrees-of-freedom: vertical, lateral, longitudinal, pitch, roll, yaw
  • Simultaneous multi-axis motion
  • A versatile mounting surface for attaching diverse test components
  • Precision repetitive testing
  • Complex real-time testing
  • Component durability testing
  • Squeak and rattle evaluation to identify potential noise
  • Vibration and harshness testing to simulate components rubbing
    together or vibrating
  • Accelerated product development
  • Dynamic response analysis
  • Computer model verification

MAST Test Applications 

  • Components and assemblies 
  • Seats
  • Instrument panels 
  • Fuel tanks
