EUHA Congress -- Audio Precision, the recognized standard in audio test, today announced a major customer win in the hearing health care industry.
Citing the need for a reliable provider of fast, high quality production test equipment at a reasonable cost, Sonova Group, the largest hearing health care company in the world, has adopted the APx511 hearing instrument audio analyzer for production test across the organization. Brands within the Sonova Group include world leaders Phonak and Unitron.
"We implemented the APx511 across multiple production lines in several countries and are seeing huge savings in test time and ease of integration within our software development environment," says Carl Blackwood, Manager, Test & Configuration Systems, Unitron, the group responsible for production test systems at all Sonova manufacturing sites worldwide. "Audio Precision is considered a Tier one supplier not only because of their top quality products but also because of their excellent service and responsiveness to our needs."
Working closely with the Test & Configuration Systems engineering team, AP has decreased Sonova's per-unit test time by 15%, while delivering more accurate measurements than their previous solution.
Sonova is a high volume customer, adding APx511 stations for their group companies located around the world. This month the Test & Configuration Systems engineering team added support for APx511 into their production test control software, allowing drop-in replacement of APx511 over older competitive equipment.
