Control Machine Vibration 

February 02, 2015

Many people think that putting together and engine is simply about putting together parts that move in a certain way and achieve a certain end. This is true to some extent, but there are also many other factors to worry about when you’re creating an engine or anything with moving parts, actually. One of the things that has to be figured out is how to control vibrations.

 

Noise Control in Machines 

February 02, 2015

Noise is probably one of the most frustrating by-products of the technological era. Any time you have moving parts rubbing against one another, you’re going to have noise to some degree because friction always causes vibration. This means that since men have started creating machines with moving parts, they’ve been thinking of ways to create noise control. There are all sorts of materials that are used for controlling noise in today’s machines. Here are just a few of them.

 

Sound Vibration – What It Can Do to A Machine

If you’ve ever driven a car that needed a tune-up, you probably already know that sometimes sound vibrations can spell big trouble. In fact, listening for vibrations may be one of the first things a mechanic does for a car that’s experiencing some trouble. Certain issues just sound different when you’ve spent your life working with cars. Sound vibrations, though, can spell trouble for any machine, no matter how large or small it happens to be. Here are just a few of the things that sound waves, innocuous as they may seem, can do to machines.

 

Vibration Control – Why It’s Vital for Moving Parts 

February 02, 2015

Any time there are moving parts in any sort of machine, there are bound to be vibrations. This is because moving parts cause friction, which releases energy in the form of heat and noise vibrations. These vibrations can be pretty harmless, causing nothing but annoyance. Sometimes you can’t even tell that they’re present. Sometimes, though, vibrations can cause major problems for a machine with moving parts. When this happens, engineers have to bring in various vibration control techniques to take care of the problem. Here are some reasons that vibration control is vital for a successful machine.

 

Noise Control

Vibrations can be a major problem for machines, and engineers must work hard to dampen, control, or manage vibrations. Vibrations can cause problems by wearing down a machine more quickly than it would otherwise be long-lasting. Sometimes, though, vibration problems aren’t even harmful to the machine. They can simply be annoying when they come out in the form of extra noise. Whether you’re crafting a tiny computer, a huge truck engine, or whatever other machine people use on a regular basis, you have to have a way to work in noise control.

 

Sound Vibrations

Inventing a new machine, whether you intend to use it on your own around your home or sell the patent for it eventually, is exciting. You might think that you’ve got it made as soon as you get the machine to work. However, have you thought yet about just how much noise your machine is making? You might think that those groans and vibrating noises coming from certain parts of your machine are simply small annoyances, but they might actually cause big problems down the road.

Engineers have a huge job when it comes to designing and putting together new machines. There are tons of things to think about, including how all of the parts will work together and even what the machine will actually work like. One of the main things that an engineer must worry about, though, is actually making sure the machine runs efficiently. There are lots of things that can take away from the efficiency of a machine, including friction and vibrations, both of which are caused by machine parts rubbing up against one another.

 

Two Types of Vibration Control

Vibration is probably one of the most difficult things that an engineer deals with on a regular basis. There are many different types of vibration, but they can all, in the wrong places, frequencies, or quantities, be terrible for machines. On a major structure like a bridge, the wrong type of vibration can cause an error that is literally fatal. In other situations, vibrations can cause machines to break down or simply to make annoying noises when they’re running. There are many types of vibration control that have developed over the years, and here are two.

 

Vibration Dampener

If you’re a walker, a runner, or simply someone who spends long amounts of time on your feet in the workplace, you probably end up with sore knees once in a while. Basically, this happens because vibrations from every step you take, especially those on a hard surface, travel up your legs, where they can wreck the delicate cartilage between your knee joints. These vibrations can also affect your hips and lower back, making you wake up sore and stiff after a long day at work or even a quick afternoon jog. However, a highly scientific substance known as Sorbothane can save you from all of these problems.

 

Camera Vibration

These days in order to be competitive in the field of artistic, everyday, or journalistic photography, you really have to go where no man has gone before. You need to be able to shoot pictures in a variety situations and from a wide variety of angles, so this means that you can’t worry about things like camera vibration messing up your final shots. Luckily, there are many different ways to solve the problem of a vibrating camera, and there are hundreds of new technological advancements coming out for cameras and photographers every day.
