WMG invests in low carbon mobility research

Warwick Manufacturing Group has invested in an LDS V8 combo shaker from Brüel & Kjær
Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) at the University of Warwick has invested in an LDS V8 combo shaker, to support its government-funded research into low carbon mobility.

The V8 system enables the team to carry out vibration tests on large lithium-ion battery systems (up to 600kg), as they go through the cycling process of charge / discharge.

The combo vibration test system is in the WMG High Value Manufacturing (HVM) Catapult centre, a government-funded programme for research across a number of themes.

The work into 'low-carbon mobility' has a specific focus on energy storage and weight reduction. As part of this programme, WMG is testing the robustness and lifespan of rechargeable battery systems, within its Energy Innovation Centre.

The LDS V8 vibration test system from Brüel & Kjær has high payload capacity for testing many applications, including automotive systems, packaging, satellites, air and spacecraft.

In future, WMG hopes to add a thermal capability to the system, in order to carry out simultaneous vibration, cycling and temperature testing.
