Data Physics opened its new shaker manufacturing operation in Southern California in December 2005. Staffed by highly experienced designers and craftsmen who worked for Ling Electronics in Anaheim, before the company was dissolved by Satcon, the Corona facility manufactures water cooled shakers to complement the air cooled shakers made at its Gearing & Watson facility in Hailsham, England.
The new water cooled models span the range of 80 KN (18,000 lbf) to 222 KN (50,000 lbf) and offer a direct replacement path for users of Ling 2016 to Ling 4522 range. Users will be pleased to hear that the armatures and field coils of the new SignalForce water cooled models are compatible with the Ling models. In addition to the new water cooled shakers, the Corona factory also manufactures armatures, field coils, flexures and other critical parts for all Ling shaker models, including air cooled shakers.
Data Physics has been a supplier of dynamic signal analyzers and vibration controllers for 23 years and began supplying total vibration test systems about five years ago; initially, the shakers were built by other manufacturers. In February 2004, Data Physics acquired Gearing & Watson, a 35 year old manufacturer of shakers in the UK. Data Physics shakers are sold under the trademark SignalForce along with SignalStar vibration controllers and SignalCalc dynamic signal analyzers.
Both Data Physics and Gearing & Watson are ISO 9001:2000 registered companies with a commitment to quality. You will now receive reliable shakers built to high standards. Most importantly the shakers are built by people who are passionate about shakers and have the knowledge and expertise to build them. Collectively, Data Physics employees have over 150 years experience in building water cooled shakers.
