Our most important skill is listening – listening to the challenges customers meet in their work processes where increasing functional demands, time pressure, regulatory requirements and budget constraints mean that getting it right the first time is becoming ever more critical. Listening hard is our way of understanding customer needs and is the start of the road to finding long-term solutions to customer's sound and vibration challenges. The only way we can put our highly skilled force of engineers and our time-tested, market-leading product portfolio to work is by listening.
The sound and vibration challenges facing our customers are diverse - from traffic or airport noise, vibration in a car engine, evaluation of building acoustics, cabin comfort in a passenger airplane to production quality control or wind turbine noise. Over the years, we have developed creative and technically advanced solutions to innumerable customer problems. Some of the work we have done with customers is published as case studies.

Environmental Noise and Vibration
Environmental noise is unwanted sound and vibration from a plethora of sources, among them industrial plants, road and rail traffic, construction work, and aircraft.
Add to these sports events, shooting ranges, leisure parks, etc, and you have noise from many different sources, each with different characteristics and posing specific problems for the professionals who have to assess them. The way the problems are dealt with differs immensely from country to country and is very much dependent on culture, economy and politics. We offer solutions to cover all demands from level checks to in-depth analysis, from measurement or prediction, to post-processing and reporting.
Occupational Safety and Health is a major concern throughout the world. Problems such as a broken limb, the loss of an eye or persistent backache have to be dealt with and measures taken to minimise the risk of these things happening at the workplace.
However, it comes as a surprise to many that loss of hearing caused by noise at the workplace is second only to the broad category 'disorders of the locomotor system' on the list of occupational diseases. Millions of people suffer from noise induced hearing loss (NIHL), resulting in a reduced quality of life.
Hearing conservation programs are implemented in most countries and governed by international and national standards and legislation. Any such program involves an assessment of the noise problem, noise control and noise reduction measures. Important aspects of hearing conservation programs are the management of data, reporting of progress and the retrieval of data, for example, when claims are made.
