Autovation Teams Up with Tier 1 & OEM for Acoustic Testing

  • May 19, 2017

    The Milliken Autovation team recently participated in extensive vehicle testing of our MaxQuiet™ technology that reduces tire and road noise. A Tier 1 automotive supplier and OEM joined Milliken at Michelin Proving Grounds to explore how different combinations of exterior trim parts and materials impact cabin noise levels.

      

    Six microphones were used to measure the sound levels both inside and outside of the vehicle for the acoustical tests while being driven approximately 750 miles on the track. There were more than 30 material/part configurations of seven exterior parts made from five different moldable nonwoven composites to identify the most effective treatment options.

    All of the miles and configurations later, the several days of testing were a success. With this data we were able to more effectively optimize the material selections for our customer’s components.
