Development and realisation of a small scale punching machine with similar dynamic properties of the original machine

A small-scale punching machine has been developed and realised. The vibration and noise radiation properties of the original machine have been measured during task 2. Based on these results, the small-scale machine has been developed such that the vibration and noise radiation properties of the original machine are also present. The machine was developed using numerical simulations and experimentally verified. The resulting small-scale machine permits to develop new noise reduction technologies in an efficient and economic way without interfering with other activities planned on the original machine. These new techniques can be developed using the numerical models as well experimentally on the small-scale machine. Once these new technologies are developed and tested, they can be transferred to the original machine.
