Helping Automotive OEMs Mitigate Noise and Vibration
The Challenge to Create a Quiet Environment
With drivers spending more and more time in their cars, auto makers face the challenge of bringing the quiet quality found in people's homes into their cars as well – but without added cost or loss of refinement. In its quest to reduce noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) in vehicles, the automotive industry is faced with numerous issues, including:
Overall sound, shock and energy absorption and isolation
Vibration dampening across various material surfaces
Insulation and cushioning
Increased higher frequency noises in cars with electric motors
