Test Equipment Hire
Rather than buying equipment why not look into test equipment hire ? If your requirement is for a short term testing programme or a temporary increase in capacity, the companies below should be able to provide testing equipment for hire.
Whilst not everything can be hired, some equipment is just too large to be cost effective on a hire basis, there is a great deal of data acquisition, small shakers, accelerometers, microphones, vibration analysis, vibration controllers etc. that can be hired effectively.
Many equipment manufacturers can also offer their equipment for hire, but there are a number of specialist hire companies that stock a range of equipment from different suppliers.
