As part of a joint ISVRCETIM project into power press noise and its control, the noise and vibrational characteristics of a 200 tonne straight-sided mechanical power press are being investigated. Detailed measurements on the actual press posed many practical problems and thus a simplified scale model of the structure was constructed. The great advantage of a model was not only that it allowed detailed measurements to be made in the laboratory but it provided the capability to study the effects of structural modifications which would be totally unpractical on the full-sized press.
