VIBRATION, ACOUSTIC AND THERMAL INSULATION
The people at Hutchinson are experts in the creation and manufacture of insulation components and systems, including thermal insulation material and equipment, antivibration systems, acoustic insulation for noise reduction.
These products serve markets in the following industries: Automotive, Heavy Truck, Railroad, Aerospace, Marine, Offshore drilling and Defense.
Protect people and their equipment
Introduction: Vibration, acoustic and thermal insulation issues are extremely complex. Solutions generally entail subtle compromises that must take into account multiple energy sources and the inevitable interactions with the behavior of the structures.
Noise and vibration generally occur together in ways that can be difficult to describe. The people at Hutchinson, thanks to their knowledge of psycho-acoustics and structural dynamics, can detect, analyze and describe problems. They can thus direct their efforts in the most coherent manner for solving them.
Controlling structural dynamics
During European research trials, Hutchinson developed unique modeling tools that allow us to precisely predict the behavior of products after fitting them into their structure.
Investment in new material
Hutchinson has had considerable success in cataloguing a broad spectrum of material over a vast field of frequencies (up to 6kHz). Recent development efforts concentrated upon porous material such as fiberglass, glass of ceramic or silica and associated foams in composite liners have given rise to new possibilities.
Applications for many world markets
Hutchinson is involved with all essential automotive functions such as the body/passenger compartment, steering, power train, exhaust line, vehicle dynamic and chassis, and others.
This expertise is applied to the aerospace sector for its antivibration systems, cabin noise reduction and high-performance thermal insulation. Railroad transportation also benefits from it for its primary and secondary mounting systems, as well as the defense, marine, offshore drilling and construction sectors.
