  5. 5. NVH  applica/on    Resonance   occurs   within   the   car  sec/ons:  pillars,  cowl  bars,  wheel  wells  &  side  panels.    Many  automo/ve  manufacturers  use  acous/cal  foam  to  minimize  noise  coming  from  /res,  wind,  exhaust  and  engine.    
  6. 6. NVH  foam  cavity  filling   Baffles   Injected  foam  Two-­‐component   polyurethane   foams.   Close   cell  formula/on   1   to   5   pcf   density   range.   Designed   to  block   noise,   water   &   wind,   forming   a   high  performance  acous/cal  seal  and  preven/ng  the  noise  from  resona/ng.

  12. 12. NVH  equipment  challenges   High  up-­‐front  capital  costs   Custom-­‐designed  polyurethane  processing   equipment  for  NVH  foam  is  expensive     Poten1al  facili1es  space  constraints     These  sizeable  polyurethane  processing   machines  take  up  a  large  amount  of  space     Cost  of  ownership   Custom  repair  parts  are  expensive.   Specialized  technicians  usually  travel  to   conduct  on-­‐site  maintenance  and  repairs  
  13. 13. NVH  Solu/ons  –  Betacell   Specialized  custom  design            Long  lead  /mes,  specialized  service  parts          Costly  repairs   Complicated  for  plant  personnel    Longer  trouble  shoo/ng  for  repairs    More  down  /me                      Controls  are  customized  by  cell,  longer  training            Specialized  maintenance            Difficult  to  service  in  field   Foot  print  must  be  considered                      Variable  ra/o:  rotary/linear  pumps                      Automa/cally  adjusts  for  wear                    Risk  of  dispensing  out  of  ra/o  tolerance                        Different  pump  types  –  more  repair  parts                      
  14. 14. HFR  The  Graco  HFR  metering  system  is  a  standard  modular  design  with  precision  dispensing  capabili/es.    Advanced  &  reliable:  High  quality  meter,  mix  and  dispense  system  that  offers  more  technology  and  func/onality.    Affordable:  a  low  ini/al  investment  allows  you  to  use  acous/cal  foam  applica/ons  where  it  may  not  have  been  possible  before.  Lower  price  than  tradi/onal  custom  systems.      Global  distribu1on
