GK Live from the Lab: Nickel and Quarter Test

Anyone can balance a nickel, but can you balance a quarter?

This video shows both a nickel and a quarter balanced on the support leg of a General Kinematics two-mass vertical shakeout. The unit had a working surface of 14′ x 19′, was 12′ tall, and weighed in at a whopping 157,000 lbs. Not only did the coins not fall, no transmission of vibration occurs when starting or stopping the large unit.

Only GK can truly pass the quarter test and eliminate your equipment’s vibration transmission problems.
