Title Reduction of noise from multi-head woodworking planers - A technical guide
Bibliographic information Occupational Safety and Health Service, Department of Labour, P.O. Box 3705, Wellington, New Zealand, 1988. 15p. Illus.
Abstract This guide outlines noise criteria associated with the operation of multi-head planing machines, relevant New Zealand legislation and the limitations of noise reduction techniques at the design stage. Details are given of the design of acoustic enclosures for the reduction of noise exposure (isolation, construction materials, doors, windows, feed and discharge apertures, ventilation). Additional benefits of such enclosures include dust and chip control.
