The Ideal Aerosmith 1068-2 is designed to apply a large centrifugal force to a payload. While this can also be accomplished with a single-axis motion simulation table system, a centrifuge is typically required for applications with larger payloads, and/or higher G requirements. The 1068-2 tests from 0 to 1000 G’s at a 10.5-inch (267 mm) radius. Payload capacity is a 24 inch cube (610mm) at an 8 inch height (203 mm) at 50 lbs. (22.7 Kg).

Ideal Aerosmith centrifuge solutions are used in many industries, including aerospace, automotive, geo-technical and the military. Often this is in the qualification testing of accelerometers, inertial packages or safe-arming devices (fuzes).
