Toyota redesigned its Camry for model year 2018. It’s been the annual best-selling sedan in America for nearly twenty years. The car maker sells nearly half a million each year, so the new design needed to maintain its top-of-the-line status.
It has a new look, a two-part grill, LED lights, and self-leveling headlights, redesigned dashboard, just to name a few features. It’s also a hybrid.
The Camry is also more peaceful. In addition to other technologies, Toyota’s engineers utilized foam vibration dampening materials throughout the vehicle and a unique vibration damping coating across a wider area of the under floor.
Car experts and enthusiasts alike called it an extremely quiet ride and went on to rave over the new design.
Ecomass Technologies is the forerunner and technological groundbreaker in high density plastics, high density polymers, thermoplastic composite materials, and high density engineered thermoplastics. Its sales and engineering teams have helped commercial customers and governmental agencies overcome physical property challenges by developing over 100 high gravity thermoplastic composite materials engineered for weighting, balancing, radiation shielding, and vibration dampening applications.
All materials have natural or resonance frequency. Energy waves have both frequency and amplitude and cause vibrations. Technicians and engineers first try to isolate and reduce energy at the source. If they can’t, they then use dampening materials to restrict, reduce, or prevent oscillation, which then reduces energy. Aircraft audio systems, sports and luxury automobile manufacturers have effectively applied Ecomass’s Vibration dampening compounds to achieve their developmental goals.
