Quieter home appliances and electric cars
Studies show a direct negative impact of high-level noise on stress hormone levels or even our cardiovascular health. The reduction of noise (thus also vibrations, which comprise its main cause) in a machine’s elements is crucial for potential users. Reducing vibrations is currently achieved by modal testing of the machines’ dynamic properties with the use of accurate broadband excitation. But exciters in use cannot be applied for moving parts. The EU-funded ProExcer project aims to experiment with the prototype application of an innovative ball shooter that will be tested to be accurately tuneable to excite spindles of machining centres by ball impacts. Positive results will be welcomed from manufacturers of home appliances or electric/self-driving cars.
