Market: Agricultural & Construction Equipment

As the time spent in these sorts of equipment can be very long, farmers and agriculture equipment operators expect a high level of comfort in their machines, on a par with automotive or truck interiors. The maximum allowed noise level in the cabin is 80 dB(A), yet with increasing engine size and increasing crop harvest throughput, OEMs have been able to reduce noise levels with each new model launch.

OEM key requirements:

  • A high-quality and decorative woven textile, improving customer experience and perceived quality
  • Cut-and-fit of the highest precision
  • Improved acoustic performance over the previous models (target <80 dB(A))
  • Reduced assembly and logistics costs

The Vitalo Response:

  • Co-design & co-engineering
  • A bespoke complex of polyester fibres and PU foam compressed to a 3D shape and laser cut
  • In-house acoustic validation
  • Pre-assembled with metal thread inserts and accessories
  • Time-to-market: prototypes in 5 weeks, SOP 12 weeks
  • In some cases, combination with thermoformed parts to accommodate air ducting solutions
  • PPM rates among the lowest in the segment
