Slip Tables

With today’s demanding test requirements there is an increasing need for slip tables to facilitate testing in a horizontal position.  Sentek Dynamics offers mono-base and stand-alone slip tables in low and high-pressure designs in standard sizes ranging from 300 mm (12 inches) to 2500 mm (98 inches).  Custom sizes are also available including expandable slip tables when a larger mounting area is occasionally required.

In a mono-base configuration the shaker and slip table share a structural steel body that enables rapid conversion between vertical and horizontal positions, and the accurate alignment of the shaker relative to the slip table when rotated to the horizontal position. 

In a stand-alone configuration an independent steel platform supported by leveling feet allows any vertical shaker from Sentek Dynamics or other manufacturer to couple with the slip table assembly.

LST Series – Sentek Dynamics’ low-pressure LST Series slip tables provide an affordable solution to horizontal testing requirements.  LST Series slip tables utilizes V-groove bearings to guide the magnesium slip plate over an oil-film on a precision ground granite slab.  Oil from an integral hydraulic power supply is dispersed through ports in the granite slab under the magnesium slip plate.

  • Affordable solution for horizontal testing
  • Integral hydraulic pump, reservoir and filter

HST Series – high-pressure slip tables utilizing T-slot bearings designed for testing heavy payloads with a high center of gravity.   The HST Series provides the highest resistance to pitch, roll and yaw over-turning moments.

  • Optimum solution for testing heavy payloads with a high center of gravity
  • Separate hydraulic power supply and oil cooler
  • More reliable than hydrostatic journal bearings
  • Lower maintenance costs over an extended period
