Individual Sound Packages for Optimum Vehicle Noise Protection
The acoustics experts at Autoneum develop, produce and test innovative acoustics solutions tailored to individual customer requirements for the entire vehicle – engine bay, underbody, interior floor and body-in-white.
Autoneum operates a worldwide network of state-of-the-art acoustics centers and material testing laboratories equipped with specially developed measurement systems. Thanks to its international presence, customers of Autoneum can rely on the professional support of a global team of acoustics experts in all project phases – ideal conditions for successful long-term cooperation!
Autoneum supports its customers in both pre-development and in the development of sound packages based on simulation and testing with its comprehensive and in-depth know-how in vehicle acoustics.
Before the start of vehicle development itself, Autoneum carries out a global NVH benchmarking (noise, vibration, harshness) in which the market requirements and current industry standards are analyzed. This procedure enables the customer to be supported at an early stage in the positioning of a new vehicle in the market. Together with the customer the specific requirements concerning the individual vehicle components are then defined after the NVH benchmarking which are then put together to create an individually tailored sound package.
Simulation and testing
In the development phase Autoneum falls back on tried-and-tested simulation methods for the design of sound packages. These enable customers to lower development and product costs significantly. The use of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and a broad-based material database lead to the following benefits for customers:
- Early identification of potential problem areas
- Shortening of lead times
- Reduction in the number of required prototypes
