*1 Random force ratings are specified in accordance with ISO5344 conditions. Please contact IMV or your local distributor with specific test requirements.
*2 Power supply: 3-phase 380/400/415/440 V, 50/60 Hz. A transformer is required for other supply voltages.
*3 If the tests (Sweep or Spot) include high velocity, the maximum velocity value should be reduced to 1.4 m/s.
*4 In case of 400 V
*5 Bypass circuit is needed. Please contact IMV or your local distributor for further information.
*6 Export Lisence is required for exporting the shaker system of over 50 kN Sine force.

* The specification shows the maximum system performance. For long-duration tests, de-rating by up to 70 % must be applied. Continuous use at maximum levels may cause failure.
* In the case of Random vibration test, please set the test definition of the peak value of acceleration waveform to be operated less than the maximum acceleration of Shock.
* Frequency range values vary according to sensor and vibration controller.
* Armature mass and acceleration may change when chamber is combined.

Product Overview

IMV’s K-Series Water Cooled Vibration Test System is a High Excitation Force Vibration Generator. The K-Series offers a range of features designed to enhance the testing environment, while still delivering high-performance, reliable and accurate vibration.

The powerful specification has been engineered to give high overturning moment to a frequency range up to 3,000Hz.

Due to its Water Cooled System, the K-Series shaker offers Silent Cooling, eliminating excess noise in the testing laboratory, ideal for use in noise-sensitive environments.

IMV have developed cutting-edge water-cooled technology, ahead of other manufacturers. The K-Series Test System features a maximum acceleration of SINE force: 1000 m/s2 , a maximum velocity Shock force: 2.0 m/s2 and a maximum displacement of 51mm.(Optional 100mm also available )

The armature is supported by IMV’s Parallel Support Guide System (PSG).

The PSG significantly improves both durability, reliability of the system resulting in a higher quality of vibration and it’s design provides adequate stiffness and rigidity when compared to a roller support system. This is achieved by an alternative alignment of gears that have a unique curve called an involute curve.

Connecting a chamber is simple thanks to the purpose-built interface.

Control System


Rapid creation of a test from a set of pre-defined templates conforming to most international test standards.


System Monitor

Remote monitoring of the test status over the internet.

The status of the test, and the amplifier or shaker operation can be viewed on a remote PC using a standard internet browser. Problems or errors are easily identified.

Key Features

  • Silent Water Cooled Design
  • Design lock-out system for low frequency testing
  • Easy maintenance (25 minutes for assemble and disassemble)
  • Up to 100 mm peak-peak displacement (4inch)
  • Standard Parallel Slope Guide support System (1.3 times greater rigidity and 10 times durable than conventional supports)
  • Body and Armature Positioning

Available Options


ECO-shaker is an electrodynamic vibration test system in which the output of the power amplifier, power input to the vibration generator and cooling blower speed are automatically optimised, according to the payload and test requirements.

Complicated manual settings are no longer needed. Changes in the operating environment or in test level are accommodated without operator intervention.

  • Only vibration test levels need to be set
  • Automatic response to changes in sample under test or test level
  • Continuous monitoring of temperatures used to control blower speed

High performance slip table

Hydrostatic-Bearing Slip Tables from IMV Corporation are of the latest design and use hydro-static bearing blocks which are attached to the underside of the slip plate to enhance the performance of the test system.

  • High moment resistance
  • Low cross-axis acceleration
  • Low distortion
  • No requirement for a separate hydraulic unit
  • Good work efficacy
  • Smaller system installation space

K-series Table Insert Pattern

Variable Armature Insert Pattern

The option to freely select the table insert pattern on the shaker armature.

  • Selecting this option, the armature mass will increase.
  • Due to combining with other options; the horizontal slip table, insert pattern may have restrictions

Head Expanders

The purpose of a Head Expander is to allow testing of multiple items simultaneously, or expanding the test area of a shaker for larger test samples.

Head Expanders can increase efficiency, or simply expand your test capabilities on an existing Vibration Test System.

  • Increase Efficiency – Test Multiple Items Simultaneously
  • Expand Test Capabilities
