Load in vertical and horizontal direction

Question

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

Answer

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