Phononic Vibes introduces a new patented technology with unprecedented performances in the vibration and noise control and isolation, with a circular economy approach. Their new technology is based on periodic architected structures to damp out and absorb the mechanical vibrations and noise.
In simple terms, this Italian startup from Milan has found a way to significantly reduce noise pollution.
Watch this video to get a better understanding:
Applitcations for their technology is wide and varied. Here are a few:
1.) Phononic Vibes created NoViDamp to reduce vibration issues caused by trains and trams. Made of concrete and steel, it can be positioned on each side of the railway, without having to remove the railway infrastructure (which is the case for existing solutions).
2.) Made in recycled plastic, their acoustic panels are able to isolate from the noise caused by neighbours, nearby infrastructures or big machines in the industrial production field.
3.) Currently working with major appliances companies, Phononic Vibes is prototyping and testing solutions based on its technology for your comfort at home. Their technology could be used on kitchen hoods, washing machines, dishwashers, HVAC systems, etc.
INAM was very lucky to have met Simone Meduri, the startups Technology Development Manager during our 2019 AdMaCom program where Phononic Vibes not only was a startup finalist but also the winner of the Mentor's Choice Award.
Also, next Monday, 20 April 2020, a new Start Up the Science podcast episode will air featuring Simone where he will talk about, in further detail, what Phononic Vibes is all about - from their technology to future applications.
