Noise reduction for a sheet metal shear - a progressive approach
Keywords:Acoustic noise, Metal forming, Shear stress, Sheet metal, Sound insulation, Industrial noise, Roll forming
AbstractThe control of industrial noise, and the reduction of noise induced hearing loss among workers, remains a serious challenge to industry and to the engineering and acoustics communities. This is particularly the case in smaller manufacturing facilities where practical and effective noise control measures need to be retrofitted to existing machinery. A case study where noise control measures were progressively developed for a manufacturing facility which produced roll-formed sheet metal for the building industry is reviewed. The study demonstrates how noise control goals can be achieved through a step by step development process with the effectiveness of each measure being assessed at each stage of development.
