Reducing Gear Noise and Exceeding Expectations

At Adigo, we understand the importance of acoustic design in mechanical transmissions. As regulations become increasingly strict and customer demands continue to rise, it’s crucial to pay attention to every detail. That’s why we focus on reducing gear noise and creating superior solutions that not only meets but exceeds expectations.

The world is changing, and so are the needs of our customers. With the growing emphasis on regulations and the increasing demand for electrically-powered machines, attention to the acoustic design of mechanical transmissions has become more critical than ever. In recent years, we have seen a growing trend in various industrial sectors, where noise reduction is a top priority.

Sound is an essential aspect of our lives, and the way we experience it can make a significant impact on our well-being. We believe that our machinery should not only be functional but also contribute to a more pleasant and peaceful environment. By designing transmissions that produce minimal noise, we can help reduce noise pollution.

Sound intensity is a critical factor when it comes to the acoustic design of mechanical transmissions. The sound waves created by the vibrating body in the medium can be measured objectively using physical quantities such as sound intensity. However, perceived loudness depends on the frequency and timbre of the sound, which is why we use isophonic curves to represent the relationship between sound intensity and perceived intensity.

Gears are an essential component of mechanical transmissions, and their noise can originate from imperfect action, resulting in dynamic forces that transmit to the walls of the casing. These vibrations translate into sound pressure waves, affecting the listener’s experience. At Adigo, we believe in reducing gear noise by tackling the problem at its source. We aim to reduce excitation of meshing, transmission paths of dynamic actions, and vibrations between the mesh and the casing, and acoustic radiation efficiency of the frame.

Our dedication to acoustic design is evident in the quality of our electrification solutions. We understand that every detail matters and are committed to delivering a superior experience. At Adigo, we believe in reducing gear noise not only to improve the user experience but also to contribute to a more sustainable workplace.
