Brüel & Kjær: 70 years of sound and vibration measurement

In the last 70 years, Brüel & Kjær's sound and vibration measurement technology has measured sound on the International Space Station and ensured all of NASA's Mars rovers survived the journey there. Their accelerometers have turned the Golden Gate Bridge into a giant harp and helped maintain hydroelectric generators around the world, while their microphones and hydrophones have investigated everything from submarines off Sweden to the pressure in Boeing's wind tunnels.

And as Brüel & Kjær turns 70, they are saying "Thank you" to all their customers: it is thanks to their customers' challenges that the company is still a leader in sound and vibration measurement technology, busily innovating for the future and pushing the boundaries of their knowledge.

So when visionaries like Airbus ask for help measuring pressure on a plane's wing, Brüel & Kjær develops the technology to do it alongside them. When mobile telephone manufacturers need to improve their production quality, the company designs whole systems that guarantee consistency. And when mine operators need to keep local stakeholders happy, Brüel & Kjær create products to provide them with the noise data.

Ford's Technical Leader for Noise, Vibration and Harshness, Mark Clapper, says: "Brüel & Kjær's innovative technology eliminates mistakes up front, reduces the need for prototyping, shortens the time to market and produces a product that not only delivers high-end interior quietness, but also provides vehicle sounds that are more engaging for the customer."

As Mark says, what ultimately matters to everyone involved is how the science and technology Brüel & Kjær develops makes a difference to people's lives. And whether you live next to a construction site or a major airport, take a ride in a London taxi or perhaps just need to make a phone call in high winds, you can feel the benefits that Brüel & Kjær systems provide.

Now the company is working to bring human sensibilities into its customers' development processes. Brüel & Kjær is perfecting simulation that lets people experience NVH parameters regardless of their education, sound quality metrics software that quantifies subjective listener experiences, and is developing 3D sound field recreation that responds to the angle of the listener's head.

Brüel & Kjær's experts enable the company to solve these challenges, but what keeps the business strongly positioned at the cutting edge of sound and vibration measurement is the fact that customers keep asking them for more innovative solutions.

So, Brüel & Kjær says thank you. Or as they say in Danish: "Tusind tak!"
