Cold cutting circular saw
A mobile electrical contractor company had a small maintenance workshop in which the cold cutting circular saw was a major noise source.
- The saw was remounted using rubber mats.
- The feed table was disconnected from the saw table to avoid the free transfer of vibration.
The noise levels were reduced by 4dB, from 94dB to 90dB whilst cutting 3mm sheet metal.
