Project Summary Project Information

For an updated project description, click on the following link for the Project Readiness Package.

Project Background: Eaton Corporation designs luminaires for industrial applications where they are exposed to extreme conditions. Many tests are run on the luminaires, including a 35 hour vibration test. Eaton currently owns an apparatus to perform this task, though it was designed and built decades ago. An updated apparatus is required to ensure accuracy and safety.

Project Objective: Design an updated vibration test apparatus capable of vibrating luminaires at 2000 RPM for 35 hours with a displacement of 1/32”. Updated system should include better lubrication containment, adjustable displacement, single technician set-up, and more accurate adjustment of frequency.
