Mantis™

Overview

MANTIS™ is the system of choice for those who need high frequency capability because of its large displacement, extended payload capacity and demonstrated superiority in design. Through the use of hydrostatic bearing technology pioneered by Team Corporation in the vibration test market, MANTIS™ has the performance to simulate real-world events that were previously unattainable.

Custom engineering is a hallmark of Team Corporation. MANTIS™ can meet a wide variety of testing needs, as it is available in a standardized model and can also be customized to fit special requirements. Table size, payload capacity, stroke length and a wide range of excitation levels are possible. All bearing surfaces are hydrostatic, eliminating the noise inherent with mechanical bearing designs. The high load carrying capacity and extreme stiffness of hydrostatic bearings make them ideal for reacting loads for extended time periods. An added benefit is the absence of metal-to-metal contact, eliminating friction and consequently improving long-term performance.
