Title Reduction of noise in the sheet-metal working industry: great improvement for a small investment
Original title Lńrmminderung in der blechverarbeitenden Industrie: Kleiner Eingriff - grosse Wirkung [in German]
Bibliographic information 1990, Vol.112, No.86, p.69-70, 72. Illus. 3 ref.
Abstract Primary and secondary noise reduction measures in sheet-metal plants of the home appliances industry are described using an eccentric press and a plate shear as examples. Partial enclosure of the drive of an eccentric press and installation of a low-noise clutch and brake unit led to a 7dB(A) reduction of the emitted noise level. Sound absorbing linings were installed at a plate shear to reduce impulse noise.
