Title Expert system for advice on noise reduction in metal stamping workshops
Original title Beratungssystem zum Lńrmschutz in Presswerken [in German]
Bibliographic information Nov. 1999, Vol.46, No.11, p.48-56. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract Stamping is one of the most noisy activities in the metalworking industry. In small enterprises in particular, impact noise averages 95dB(A) and therefore clearly exceeds the permissible level of 85dB(A). This article describes a software tool that allows to predict workplace noise levels on the basis of technical production data, manufacturing steps and local conditions. Users can thus obtain noise level values and indications of risks to workers. This system also allows to predict effects of measures or planned modifications aimed at reducing noise levels in stamping workshops.
