This International Standard provides technical information on the design of textile machinery with reduced noise emissions. Textile machines with a significant noise hazard are defined in
ISO 11111 (all parts).
This International Standard supports the technical designer with the development of low-noise textile machinery. For this purpose, the significant sources of noise of the individual types of textile machines
and suitable noise control measures are described.
Elements needed for the operation of the textile machine, which are, however, not part of the textile machine, are not covered by this International Standard (e.g. elements for transportation of process material, elements for provision of media).
