Abstract
The use of workpiece vibration suppression to help control industrial wood planer noise is explored. Laboratory experiments which simulate workpiece excitation and suppression are described. Utilizing the suppression system on an industrial machine in conjunction with a cutterhead equipped with spiral knives and a compact enclosure provides a reduction in noise level of about 20 decibels.
