Whether you're a recognised machine manufacturer with quantity production, a small machine constructor with a moderate number of items, a crafts company, or mechanical engineer in the planning phase; every company working with machines is familiar with the inestimable problem of dampening machine acoustics and noise and the prevention regulations. A pair of simple ear protectors are often not nearly enough to deal with the considerable noise pollution of machines and the permissible sound level. For large industrial companies wanting to take subsequent insulation measures and start soundproofing their plants, as also for the small craftsman with a noise problem in his workshop, aixFOAM offers suitable solutions for containing unwanted sounds.

industrial sound insulation

Adequate sound insulation machinery is not only subjectively determined; the Machine Noise Protection Act is also a factor. This applies to different devices and machines, including construction machines, building and cleaning vehicles, and garden and landscape devices.

Besides the machinery noise abatement for machines produced in machinery construction in order to reduce their noise, workplace guidelines and generally valid regulations make it necessary to provide for appropriate industrial soundproofing. Soundproofing the machine room with insulation material should already be considered during the planning stage, in order to adhere to legal provisions. Sound insulation and industrial soundproofing makes enormous demands of planners and architects, however, since acoustically hard walls and high ceilings of industrial halls cause strong reverberation, thus substantially increasing noise pollution.

Soundproofing for the machinery building sector

The products of aixFOAM offer many possibilities to improve the acoustics in machinery construction. For example, absorber elements, which can be attached almost anywhere in industrial halls, absorb sound and convert it into warmth, thus helping to more efficiently create soundproofing in industrial plants.

The elements for plant manufacturing sound protection can be installed using the self-adhesive backing. You can also hang absorption panels vertically, with suspension eyelets and tension cables, for soundproofing in machinery construction. A sound-absorbing system in the form of a horizontal suspended ceiling is recommended for sound insulation machine room, especially if suction lines are led within the upper area of the hall.

Thus can the noise be reduced in machinery construction.

Machines differ not only according to their designs and functions, but also regarding the kinds of noise they cause. Very high, whistling tones can occur, as can deep, vibrant tones. aixFOAM sound absorbers offer a suitable solution for ensuring machine soundproofing and optimising the machinery acoustics for every sound imaginable, e.g. soundproofing engines.

If the sound source is only a single machine part, like the transmission or the engine, it is often enough to acoustically isolate this sound for the acoustic quieting of the machine. The machine casing can be used as support material to improve engine soundproofing. If multiple sound sources and their developing vibrations must be softened, completely lining the machine housing for soundproofing with sound absorbers is recommended for improved soundproofing.

Deep tones from spl machines often produce unwanted oscillations that are passed from one construction part to the next. Sheet metal constructions are especially prone to these kinds of sounds. This problem can be eliminated by a purposeful anti drumming sheet using aixFOAM acoustic heavy foil or heavy foam panels. A combination of both acoustic materials offers optimum results of the sound proof machine.

Subsequent sound insulation machine

Additional sound isolation for machine may be needed for an efficient noise protection machinery construction. aixFOAM offers a standard palette of modular constructed acoustic sound absorbers as well as complex individual solutions especially tailored for devices and machines for machine casing soundproofing and acoustic bonnet soundproofing for large, middle, or small series. Effective sound protection is even realisable with machines with complicated formal designs, thanks to accurate packaging.

Effective noise container soundproofing

Many machines are built into special containers for dampening purposes, so that the work done in industrial plants isn't too loud. However, this principle only functions if appropriate noise container soundproofing ensures that the noise produced by the devices does not penetrate outward, through the thin sheet metal walls. aixFOAM acoustic foam, which can be either directly attached or mounted with hanging installation cartridges, is wonderfully suitable for lowering the sound pressure level of a machine in this way.

Special solutions for compressor sound insulation

Compressors are among the noisiest machines in industry and handicraft. Only by using appropriate compressor soundproofing exceeding an acceptable sound pressure level for these machines can be avoided. Convoluted foam and soundproof panels from aixFOAM can be cut individually, and adapted for compressors and acoustic hood insulation, for example.

Effective lift system soundproofing

Lifts, like all complex technical systems, produce a significant noise level. Since the shafts for lifting cargo and passengers often border directly on workplaces, it is the architect's and elevator constructor's task to provide appropriate elevator sound insulation. Here, DIN 4109, which lays down noise protection for buildings in general, and VDI 2566, which prescribes the limit values and measures for soundproofing elevators, particularly apply. Special aixFOAM sound absorbers are often used for lift system soundproofing. Not only do they comply with the Fire Protection Act DIN 4102B, but also exhibit the best sound absorption values, offer an effective possibility of improving elevator soundproofing against elevator noise and lowering the noise level.
