Technology has produced and installed a large motion simulation
table for the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Newport, RI.
Various types of equipment can be mounted on the table and subjected
to the types of motion normally found at sea.
motion table is a six-degree-of-freedom design that is electrically
controlled and hydraulically powered. Six hydraulic cylinders
support a platform, to which test items are attached. Complex
motions in pitch, roll, yaw, heave, surge and sway can be performed
under computer control. A high capacity hydraulic system, located
nearby, provides the pressure and flow required to achieve the
specified rates of motion.
payload capacity: 1300 lbs. up to 62" above table
surface, plus 500 lbs. at table surface geometric centroid
base dimensions: 110"W x 110"L x 64"H
knuckle bearing with quad-tapered rollers (no backlash)
steel welded construction throughout
profiles: sinusoidal or complex motion
