A strip-fed punch press running at 271 strokes per minute produced noise levels of 101 dB(A).
The press frame was sitting on welded legs and, with little or no damping, these were prone to transmit vibration. This vibration was a major source of the high noise levels.

Composite pads were inserted between the press frame and its supporting legs. These reduced the transmission of mechanical vibration.
In addition, existing acoustic guards were damped with self-adhesive damping sheet.
The noise was reduced by approximately 9 dB(A) at a cost of only £50 and the measures implemented did not affect on the operation and maintenance of the press.
