Abstract The noise emissions of the most frequently used turning and milling machines in Germany were measured. About 20 different types were included of each kind. High sound pressure levels were measured during high-speed turning and milling operations and during acceleration of the rotating tool. During idling as well as turning and milling at lower speed the noise emissions were relatively low due to the modern design of the machines. Recommendations are presented for updating the German standard DIN 45635 which requires measurements in the idle at highest speed and during turning and milling with 50% of the nominal power.
