Noise levels and sound quality are important characteristics in all kinds of home appliances and white goods. Reducing noise in consumer products is complex and often there are multiple solutions. How can manufacturers decrease the sound power value of next-generation dishwashers or washing machines? What are the most effective noise control methods to reduce product noise?
Learn about the three most effective test-based approaches to lower the product’s sound power values systematically and efficiently with this white paper.
Product noise as a competitive advantage
Product noises are ubiquitous. The current trends of living in increasingly dense cities, buying smaller living areas, and having open kitchens means that people are constantly surrounded by noise. Manufacturers realize that they can use pleasant sounds as brand identity and as a competitive advantage.
Improve product perception and learn how to reduce or eliminate the unnecessary noise from your product.
Noise quality simulation
Improving the noise quality and its perception is possible using simulation and test-based approaches. Trial-and-error or randomly adding acoustical material to prototypes are far from optimal approaches. Manufacturers have several strategies for improving noise quality, including noise cancellation, blocking the noise, determining its source, and with some further details, understanding the underlying phenomena. Learn about the smart strategies used by industries to improve noise emitted by products.
How to reduce product noise?
Unlike other performances, the acoustic behavior of a new product is perceived only at an advanced stage—once the prototype is available. Home appliance manufactures have limited options to improve the acoustic performance of their product without increasing the cost of the raw materials or delaying the product launch. This whitepaper lists the three most effective approaches to lower the product’s sound power values systematically and efficiently.
