The Blachford Acoustics Laboratory and Technical Center is a multi-faceted facility that serves as a vital resource for our customers who are interested in meeting noise, sound quality and thermal goals while reducing weight and cost. All studies are performed to the highest standards because the facility is ISO 17025 accredited to perform numerous tests. It offers an unprecedented means of analyzing the acoustical composition and impact of noise structures, and is truly a resource capable of meeting even the most exacting acoustical and thermal needs.
Featuring a large hemi-anechoic chamber, a heavy-duty dynamometer and buck testing capabilities, it is the only laboratory specifically designed for testing both smaller vehicles and products, as well as large equipment such as heavy trucks, off-highway machines, buses or motor homes. Our experienced acoustical engineers work closely with our customers’ technical groups as a team to conduct intensive product and material tests to solve difficult problems.
Whether enhancing the performance of existing noise control treatments or developing new acoustical packages, the result is the same: better differentiation and value for our customers.
