Jerry Perkins, global head of General Industry Adhesives, Henkel Group said, “At Henkel, we partner with our customers across diverse industry segments to help them achieve business success. We offer end-to-end solutions to our customers right from developing and selecting right solutions, testing and validation to on-the-line implementation. We are committed to further deepen our partnership with our customers in India, Middle East and Africa with the new investments in the Innovation Centre at Pune.”
Equipment used in industrial facilities such as pumps, pipes and surfaces of all kinds have to be able to withstand harsh conditions and heavy-duty use. Henkel works hand-in-hand with customers from heavy industries to meet these new challenges, providing a one-stop shop for tailored services. The new MRO Application Development Centre at Pune is fully equipped to develop and offer Loctite Polymer Composite solutions to rebuild, repair and protect industrial equipment.
The Acoustic Engineering Centre provides comprehensive testing of Henkel’s individual and combined parts and pumpable acoustic solutions, offering customers performance and economical expertise in acoustics, along with detailed analytical results of their findings to offer optimum NVH solutions. In addition to panel vibration and sound propagation of a typical body structure, the facility conducts evaluations for vibration damping or stiffening body panels using materials loss factor.
Additionally, sound transmission loss and absorption is used to measure and optimize body-in-white or component treatments. At the centre, Henkel’s trained team of engineers analyse acoustic material properties of structures and panels to determine their effectiveness in automotive, off-road equipment and appliance applications.
