The Modal Shop, a PCB Group Company, provides structural vibration and acoustic
sensing systems to engineers worldwide. Located in Cincinnati, we retain close ties to the
University of Cincinnati's Structural Dynamics Research Laboratory, a recognized leader
in sound, vibration and modal analysis research. The Modal Shop assures you continued
development of high-quality products combined with unparalleled customer support of the
"Simplifying people's lives with smart sensing solutions that help improve the
performance of people, products, and processes."
Our name was chosen to combine the science of "modal," or structural
testing, and the full-service attitude of our "shop"-like organization. Our
business is dedicated to help you test, model, and modify the dynamic behavior of
structures and processes. We strive to provide the experimental testing community
with a single source for all modal and test needs.
Today's competitive manufacturing environment is driving both technology and
efficiency gains at even the smallest of operations. Addressing these needs, smart
sensors and SMART digital controllers are now economical, infrastructure friendly
and easy to deploy in your current processes. Previously used only by the machinery
maintenance or health monitoring personnel, sound and vibration are now high return
measurands on the plant floor generating reliable and cost effective indicators of part
quality, process integrity AND machine health. Expense level investments in smart
sensing are providing capital level returns in improved quality manufacturing. Can
