Why The Modal Shop?

The Modal Shop is a sister company to the Industrial Monitoring Instrumentation (IMI) division within the PCB Group of companies. IMI is the premier global source for vibration sensors in predictive maintenance and process monitoring.  The PCB Group's roots trace back to the founding of PCB Piezotronics by brothers Bob and Jim Lally almost 50 years ago.  Over the course of 25 years The Modal Shop, as part of the PCB Group, has become the global leader in vibration calibration as both a solutions provider and source of knowledge/training/support. We are a small, blue-collar company in Cincinnati, Ohio and we believe:

  • The phone should be answered by a person
  • Our customer's questions are more important than internal meetings
  • In making field testing and calibration easy
  • Accuracy is important and should be validated by a 3rd party to global standards
  • Production quality cannot be compromised... ever

Our Commitment to You

  • Total Customer Satisfaction
    • This is not boring company rhetoric about warranty or a refund policy. We don’t need a refund policy. We are going to make sure our products are still helping your company or department six months later, one year later, five years later…
  • Flexible Rental Options Backed by ISO-Accredited Quality‚Äč
    • Some plants only test once or twice per year during scheduled outages. Our rental program gives them the benefits of increased safety, uptime and confidence without requiring a capital expenditure. NIST traceable Portable calibrators can be rented for as little as one week and include a calibration certificate. Rental spending can be credited to future purchases should the need arise.  Ask us about our Rental Program.
  • Innovation
    • The industrial vibration instrumentation world is constantly evolving. We continue to create solutions that respond to the market and make field testing easy. 
  • Accountability
    • No calibration device is 100% accurate, especially one handling various payloads with multiple speeds and amplitudes. We provide accuracy results on an ISO 17025 accredited calibration certificate for every unit. 
  • Community Service
    • Aside from holding numerous technical seminars and presenting at ISA, Vibration Institute and NCSLI conferences, our 25+ years of vibration calibration knowledge is at our customer’s disposal. Webinars for quick video demos are routine and a network of local technical contacts is also available with in-person support from The Modal Shop's team.
