Our Approach

Since our founding, KFB’s approach to understanding the acoustics has remained the foundation of our efforts.
Implementing an interdisciplinary approach, harnessing advanced technologies to accelerate discoveries. Inventing new methods when existing technology and approaches do not meet our needs.
Focusing on both basic and experimental research that can solve some of the biggest acoustics problems facing the world today.
Taking a long-term approach, understanding that breakthroughs are made possible through funding and persistent efforts over time.
Collaborating with external organizations, including other acoustical companies and academic institutions.
"Answering the big questions requires balancing between theory and experiment. Our team thrives on the challenge to deliver the best possible performance"

Our Focus is acoustics

01
Noise control
Offering our clients the whole range of acoustic solutions, reducing the noise level at workstations and in the environment.
02
Physical acoustics
Studying the behavior of sound waves in different conditions and applying this knowledge to design and improve products.
03
Architectural acoustics
Supporting the work of architects by measuring acoustic insulation, reverberation time and other relevant parameters.
04
Acoustics measurements
Using our highly specialized equipment to take measurements in various fields of acoustics, even in challenging circumstances.
05
Environmental noise
Using specialized tools and equipment allowing for accurate measurements and simulations of noise level in the environment.
06
Machine acoustics
Dealing with excessive noise produced by industrial machines by using vibroacoustic optimization to make them more silent.
07
Electroacoustics
Building an anechoic chamber for measuring the parameters of electroacoustic devices in the future.
08
Vehicle acoustics
Improving the acoustic comfort in the passenger’s cabin of different kinds of vehicles (cars, trains, dumpers, etc.)
09
Aeroacustics
Reducing and predicting the noise associated to the turbulences and fluid flow in large ducts of production halls.
10
Vibration and dynamics
Performing simulations and measurements concerning vibration transmissions in mechanical structures.
11
Audio signal processing
Using active noise control algorithms to suppress the noise in large ducts of production halls.
12
Experimentation in acoustics
Developing and implementing new techniques and methodologies in acoustics.
13
Speech
Describing phenomena related to the human voice, speech production as well as speech perception and intelligibility.
14
Soundscape
Recreating the acoustic environment the way humans perceive it using artificial sound sources and auralization.
15
Psychoacoustics
Understanding how people perceive sounds. Assessing the annoyance of tonal noise by using different acoustic penalties.
16
Artificial intelligence in acoustics
Automatic classification of acoustic events with the help of AI for analysis complex data.
17
Infra sounds
Qualitative and quantitative characterization of sounds below our hearing range, and still have influence on us and our environment.
18
Computational acoustics
Using computer-based models for predicting and solving acoustic problems in a broad range of fields and applications.
19
Education in acoustics
Running a variety of educational projects and creating modern educational materials on acoustics.

Our research is powered by technology

At KFB’s, our R&D engineers work hand-in-hand with scientists throughout the company, in mostly uncharted areas rooted in acoustics and advanced technology. We are in it for the long-term. KFB's employees are scientists, engineers, explorers and inventors, a mindset focused on tackling big, complex scientific questions, who enjoy the opportunity to explore new avenues of research.
If existing technology does not help us answer a research questions, then we will invent something new. Scientists and engineers in our R&D department are not bound by the questions of others. They seek out their own experiments and we encourage them to build and harness new technologies and tools that can support the entire company.
Our cutting-edge technologies support the KFB’s goals and put the newest capabilities in the hands of our scientists.
How we work

Freedom to explore, technology to lead the way.

We are passionate about science and have the sense of wonder that is required to succeed in an uncharted area such as acoustics. We’re excited and humbled by the opportunity.

We are deliberate about creating a community in which KFB’s scientists and engineers have the freedom to explore, take chances and follow their own scientific pursuits and passions, wherever they may lead.

We focus intensely on interdisciplinary collaboration within KFB, and with our external partners, because we believe that breakthroughs occur when curious people work together to solve what others believe are intractable challenges.

We have been cooperating with KFB since 2013. We recommend KFB as a reliable
and professional partner. Cooperation between our companies is very good,
KFB employees are committed to provide advisory and substantive help.
Communication between our companies runs smoothly, and each contact
confirms the professionalism and competence of KFB's specialists.
