WEGAI specializes in qualification of all types of electrical and mechanical equipment by seismic testing and have overseen shake table tests in laboratories throughout North America, Europe, and Asia (click here for lab affiliates). Bill started his career in the mid 70’s with ANCO Engineers, a company specializing in development of vibration testing equipment and testing services. Bill has passed down his passion for seismic testing and WEGAI continues to aid our clients in achieving successful shake table tests. We have developed proven analysis methods for highlighting and fixing potential seismic vulnerabilities prior to testing. We are dedicated to helping our clients understand the requirements for seismic testing and ensuring that the testing process runs smoothly for equipment qualification. We are experienced in all the relevant testing specifications including the IEEE-STD-693, IEEE-STD-344, IBC/CBC/ASCE7, and ICC-AC 156.
