As part of a Coordinated Textile Industry Noise Reduction Program, a study of the sources of spinning frame noise has been conducted. Techniques of source modification and narrow-band frequency analysis were used. Several machines were studied. Major noise sources were found to be the ring-traveler and spindle-bobbin systems. Other sources identified were the drive cylinder, drive tapes, idler pulleys, vacuum system, and gears. Relative importance of the sources and differences among machines is discussed. Suggestions are offered for ways to reduce noise from some of the sources. Work is continuing to evaluate and develop the most feasible methods of spinning frame noise reduction.
