The word `quality` is generally used in connection with expensive items and luxury goods. Nowadays, the quality of their product is what suppliers and sub-suppliers live by. Customers, world over, demand and expect it. In manufacturing, much effort has gone into `engineering in` quality by carefully optimising the design and production methods. However, a variety of manufacture and assembly faults often result in unacceptable noise and vibration levels in manufactured products. There is still only one method that...
Before you can determine what design changes are appropriate to reduce the noise emitted by a product, you need to be able to characterise it in terms of: Spectral content: The location of the dominant sources. The relative importance of dominant sources. Noise Source Identification employs a number of tools to perform such a characterisation.
Noise emission values are increasingly becoming marketable items for machines, equipment and appliances - low noise emissions directly relate to lower noise exposure for product users and bystanders. Retail customers, both private and corporate, appreciate this relationship and are, therefore, more aware of noise emission declarations on goods when deciding their purchases.
With today`s growing focus on noise control issues and the emergence of sound quality as an important aspect of product design, acoustic material testing is becoming increasingly relevant to engineers, designers and manufacturers from a broad range of industries. Acoustic material testing is the process by which the acoustic characteristics of materials are determined in terms of absorption, reflection, impedance, and admittance, including transmission loss.
Completing a Noise Risk Assessment can seem like a big task at first. That`s why our Noise Experts have provided advice based on their years of experience. Find answers to common problems such as "Do I have a noise problem?" and "What do the Regulations require me to do?" We`ve also recommended a range a products to help get you started with workplace noise monitoring.
The infrastructure required by the iron and steel industry is considerable, and includes a variety of rotating machines such as pumps, fans and rolling mills. Processes and operating conditions vary according to the product worked, and may involve cyclic operations, complex facilities, and stringent security and accessibility constraints.
