Overview:

American BOA specializes in the engineering and production of thinwall flexible metal components and systems for automotive and industrial applications. The company frequently creates new designs to meet the requirements of automobile original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The damping characteristics and stiffness of the flexible joints are configured to optimize the noise vibration and harshness (NVH) characteristics of the vehicle. In the past, American BOA used engineering formulas to develop a rough design and then built and tested the physical prototypes in 6DOF (Degrees Of Freedom) for characteristics and durability to finetune the designs, which took about five weeks.
