Load in vertical and horizontal direction

Question

Does the maximum payload value change due to impacts in the horizontal direction? Is there any correlation between this characteristic and the one specified in product certificate? Does the payload specified in the product certificate stand for only horizontal load?

Answer

Product certificate specifies only the payload value for the vertical direction. When performing tests in the horizontal direction, it is possible to increase the payload, however, impelling power limitation will still be applicable. Some of the shakers (for instance, those having CDA stabilization) cannot produce powerful impact in the horizontal direction –  this feature will be clearly specified in the product certificate.
