The world’s largest automatic transmission manufacturer Aisin AW is continuously seeking operational improvement. Growing weary of relying mainly on troubleshooting for solving noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) issues, the company started looking for a reliable and reputable technology partner. As from 2003 onwards, Simcenter Engineering has effectively fulfilled this prominent role.
Close collaboration with Simcenter engineers has enabled Aisin AW to successfully address complex durability and NVH-related problems including gear whine, rattle, booming, judder and shift shock. The Simcenter Engineering expertise and the combined test and simulation approach has empowered Aisin AW to significantly reduce overall troubleshooting time when dealing with new NVH issues; and even completely avoid judder in transmission prototypes.
The long-term relationship between the technical experts of Aisin AW and Simcenter Engineering has yet celebrated its first “decenni-versary”. Its partnership continues to be based on two common aspects of each company’s identity: high quality standards and innovative technology. The unique combination of test and simulation techniques, as well as technology transfer and troubleshooting capabilities of the engineering services team continues to help Aisin AW to maintain its image as an innovative technology leader.
