Custom cab insulation absorbs sound and provides a finished appearance to mobile equipment interiors. This acoustic insulation can be cut by hand and applied with spray adhesives, but that process is expensive, wasteful, and even hazardous to human health. Plus, manual cutting can result in cabin insulation that’s unappealing. Buyers who see mis-cuts may question the quality of your overall equipment design.
As mobile equipment manufacturers are discovering, there’s a better way to design and build quieter cabs. Custom-fabricated insulation that’s waterjet cut creates straight lines and chamfered angles. There’s less material waste, reduced cutting times, and closer control of material usage. Engineers can also get design assistance and help with material selection. Installers can avoid messy, toxic spray adhesives.
Parts marking, kitting, and packaging provide benefits, too. By taking a closer look at how custom-fabricated cab insulation is made, you can determine if it’s the right choice for your company. (more…)
