Reduction of Vibrations and Noise using Nylon-66/Fe2O3 Nanocomposite Gear Box in Lathe

A. Chennakesava Reddy [30]


Abstract: Exposure to excessive noise can damage hearing, and it is important to understand the effects of this kind of noise, particularly because such exposure is avoidable. The aim of the present work was to reduce vibrations and noise in the lathe machines using nylon-66/Fe2O3 nano composite gears in the gear box. As per IRD General Machinery Vibration Severity Chart, the condition of the lathe is SMOOTH as the vibration has been reduced to 90 VdB. The noise levels have been reduced to the permissible limit of 102 dB for the lathe machines with gear box having Nylon-66/Fe2O3 nano composite gears.


Keywords: Vibration, noise, lathe, gear box, Nylon-66, iron oxide, nanocomposite gears
