Need details

IncWell's partner seeks innovative air moving technology that can combine high air flow and quiet operation.



Whether it's the dead of winter or the height of summer, a pleasant automotive experience can depend on the vehicle's air movement system. To achieve proper air flow in an automotive interior application, high air flow is needed.


Unfortunately, high air flow can also generate unacceptably high noise levels.
