Kleinbeck Engineering designs products for the audio / visual market and provides acoustic engineering and testing services. Kleinbeck cabling is distributed through select dealers, contact for more information. With 40+ years of experience in electrical and mechanical noise abatement in the aerospace and military industries. Our conductor knowledge and shielding knowledge is found in the our cable designs. Kleinbeck cables are one of leading low noise cables on the market today. With ultra low noise, high conductivity cables, music takes on a life of its own and has a breath taking musicality.
Kleinbeck Engineering provides Acoustic measurement and shielding design for products and structures. Acoustic measurements are made with a microphone calibrated to either 87db or 115db. A calibrated sound source is used to calibrate the measurement system to insure accuracy and consistency. We have 40+ years of experience in designing products for the aerospace and military industries.
Kleinbeck Engineering provides knowledge, design, production, quality control, and testing experience of: normal and emergency environmental life support systems at all altitudes with gas/liquid filtration with and without coalescence, air cycle HVAC systems, solid state and interstitial gas storage systems, chlorate candles; mobile power generation, emergency power systems, and Uninterrupted Power Systems including energy storage systems including multi-fuel engines/turbines and high energy electromagnetic impulse survival; precious metal processing and refining; composite materials (making composite material and using composite materials); acoustic, electrical, and mechanical noise abatement/isolation; neutron photograph (using low energy neutrons); grounding and shielding systems for ultra low noise requirements; engineering software, data stream collection, data stream analysis and controls of mechanical and electrical systems including gas powered only systems (no electrical power); and tactically quite systems. These are some of my favorites and this past work directly influences the lives of millions of people every day. I would like to thank the many people I have worked with, my teachers, and mentors for helping make these achievements.
Production equipment includes, but not limited to: CAD/CAM/CAE software, cnc mill, cnc diode laser (cutting and engraving), and 3D DFM Printer.
