In October 2005, MTS Corporation decided to withdraw from the noise and vibration (NVH) market. Maya HTT and Brüel & Kjær are, therefore, pleased to announce that the new partnership is committed to continuing the sales and support of I-deas Test and related software products for noise and vibration analysis. New and existing customers alike can, therefore, use Brüel & Kjær’s well-established worldwide sales and support network to buy and maintain what were MTS products.
Joe Strelow, Product Marketing Manager, MTS Systems says, “MTS is confident that our NVH software customers will be well-served by Maya’s proven development capability coupled with Brüel & Kjær’s experienced support and distribution network.”
“The accelerating time-to-market that vehicle manufacturers expect is transforming the way the world engages with NVH problems,” says Brüel & Kjær’s Managing Director Karl Kristian Hvidt Nielsen.
“Brüel & Kjær is at the centre of this trend, and the I-deas test products are a perfect supplement to our PULSE software and hardware platform and our sensor technology. I-deas Test already has measurement support for Brüel & Kjær PULSE acquisition hardware, and data can be acquired and shared between both products. With a fully integrated solution we are in the best position to redefine the way engineers and businesses tackle noise and vibration issues.”
Founded in 1982, Maya HTT of Montreal, Canada specialises in engineering software development and associated services. Working with its strategic alliance partner UGS, Maya HTT has an installed software base of 4000 users. As an experienced I-deas product developer and with an expanded development team, Maya HTT will complete all software development activities on the acquired MTS products to ensure that future product maintenance needs and market-driven enhancements are provided in releases closely aligned with the UGS I-deas and Brüel & Kjær product strategies.
Brüel & Kjær has assumed responsibility for all technical product support, and its global support network will be expanded with additional qualified support personnel experienced in the MTS NVH product lines. Brüel & Kjær is well prepared to support I-deas Test as the company has served as distributor of I-deas Test and related products for many years in Japan.
