What is a Vibration Resonance?

A vibration resonance occurs when equipment or a product is exposed to an external forced vibration occurring at one or more of its natural frequencies.  The resulting product response vibration is amplified and can be huge!  Vibration resonances can cause severe damage to products and significantly shorten their life.  Examples of vibration resonances can be seen below and in our video page.

A natural frequency is the frequency at which a system will oscillate after an external force is applied and then removed.  All objects have a natural frequency at which they vibrate.  Most products have many natural frequencies.
