Solutions for Noise and Vibration Testing
Single-source measurement solutions for noise and vibration testing.
ACS is a single source for the design and construction of noise and vibration testing facilities that allow manufacturers to obtain quality data for new product development, certification, and end-of-line production testing. We are experts in test equipment and integrated facility solutions for Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) testing and fully understand our clients’ products and testing techniques.
NVH Services include:
- Supplier selection
- Material procurement
- Engineering design
- Design review
- Installation & construction management
- Owner’s representation
- Acceptance criteria preparation & review
- Independent witness testing
ACS Vibration Engineering
ACS has also been successfully implementing improved structural design concepts with a “Six Step Program” for test facilities and test equipment.
ACS ACOUSTICS & VIBRATION EXPERTISE
ACS engineers work with your team to specify requirements for materials and equipment for NVH testing applications.
- Sound door specification– size, STC rating, door swing, fire rating, hardware type
- Anechoic and hemi-anechoic room specification – room dimensions, cut-off frequency, background noise level, construction type, HVAC interface, cable pass location identification, vibration isolation requirements
- Reverberation room specification – room dimensions, background noise level, surface finish, construction type, HVAC interface, cable pass location identification, vibration isolation requirements
