Didn't know they stuck mass dampers in these, it is a commercial but I thought it funny, Sandvik is a customer but not this site.

From the outset, I expected that to be chock-full of bad explanations. It turned out to be pretty solid. I am getting used to annoying hosts like that, I guess. A great Taipei101 demo as well.

I just dislike the common misconception that vibration represents a large amount of energy. Vibrational energy is so miniscule compared to the normal operating energies of things that vibrate.

I had read about Silent Tools quite a while ago, but I still enjoyed the video! The are some competing methods/products for the machine tool industry, but the Silent Tools product is well engineered and effective.
