ARK Thermal Insulation Engineering & Trading Co, where manufacturing of Ovens, Furnaces, Heat Insulation, Removable Heat Insulation Blankets is done is located at S181, M.I.D.C., Bhosari, Pune. ARK Noise Control Engineering Center, is equipped with its own manufacturing facility, Located at Plot No. 223, Sector-7 PCNTDA, Bhosari, Pune, Where manufacturing of Acoustical Enclosures, Acoustical Panels, Absorptive Silencers, Removable Acoustical Blankets is carried out.
In 2007, ARK developed and manufactured its revolutionary design for Honeycomb Type Anechoic Chambers. Conventionally, Anechoic chambers are manufactured using foam wedges, of length approximately 1100~1200 mm for the cutoff frequency of 100 Hz, and foam wedges are installed on all sides of the anechoic chamber including the floor and the ceiling which means that there will be a huge loss of space of thickness 1200 mm from all sides. Our revolutionary design of anechoic chamber and honeycomb type panel does the anechoic treatment of a room in a thickness of just 300 mm. i.e. saving of more than 75% in space. ARK’s revolutionary anechoic chamber was tested according to ISO 3745 which is the standard for testing of Hemi and fully anechoic chambers, and Inverse square law was proved inside our anechoic chamber and 6 dB of drop for every doubling distance was achieved to prove the existence of Free field condition. This is “one of its kind” Anechoic Chamber in the entire world.
In 2011, At ARK Noise Control Engineering Centre, we established our new manufacturing facility for manufacturing of acoustical enclosures, absorptive silencers, engine acoustical test cells, room acoustical treatments, and noise barries. This facility is equipped with our own CNC Bending and Shearing machines, CNC Notching Machine, CO2 Welding machines imported directly from Germany for achieving the best possible welding quality for all of our products.
