250-kg Uniaxial Shake Table

The QuakeLogic offers the 250-kg Shake Table, which is designed based on advanced engineering principles to simulate seismic activity for testing and research purposes. The structural framework consists of a robust, precision-engineered table platform supported by high-strength steel components. The platform can support up to 250 kg of test specimens.

The top table of the 1-axis system has dimensions of 100×100 cm (length by width) and a capacity of ±1g at 250 kg. It offers a stroke of ± 200 mm (total stroke of 400 mm) and operates using an electro-mechanical mechanism to generate precise and controlled movements. This system is integrated with high-fidelity sensor and actuator that translate electrical signals into physical motion, replicating the complex dynamics of earthquake waves. The control system uses real-time feedback mechanisms to ensure accuracy and repeatability of the simulations, making it an essential tool for structural and seismic testing.


The primary function of the 250-kg Shake Table is to provide a controlled environment for simulating seismic events. This equipment is designed to replicate ground motion by subjecting test specimens to a wide range of earthquake-induced vibrations in addition to signals such as sine wave, which are essential for comprehensive testing.

The product comes with EASYTEST PC control software, allowing for precise control and monitoring of the shake table’s operations. The EASYTEST is used for setting up test parameters, including the amplitude, frequency, and duration of the simulated earthquakes. This software enhances the usability of the system, making it accessible for both novice and experienced users.
