Brüel & Kjær launch a new range of LDS head expanders

Sound & vibration expert Brüel & Kjær has launched a quality range of LDS head expanders to increase the capability for customers’ existing shaker systems.

Head expanders allow users to increase the effective mounting surface, which in turn provides more room for assessing bigger loads. It also offers them the opportunity to test several items at once, thereby reducing the time and cost spent.

The robust head expanders are cast in magnesium alloy - an extremely high strength material with excellent damping properties - used mainly within aerospace, automotive, military and electronics industries. The optimised Finite Element Analysis (FEA) design ensures the head expanders are usable over a very large frequency range. Coupled with the shaker system, the expanders boost the versatility for vibration testing on many different applications, such as helicopter gearboxes, aircraft engines and performance car components.

Each head expander is supplied with specific lifting capabilities to ensure the user’s safety, whilst allowing them to fit expanders quickly.

LDS - part of Brüel & Kjær since 2008 - is a world-leading design and manufacturer of vibration testing system, vibration controllers, and data acquisition systems.
