    I took over a sign shop after it was all setup. I have a Vision 9 engraver that is setup in an approx 15x15 space.

    It is painful when the engraver is running. The noise is tolerable with proper ear protection but the concussive force of the unit jars my joints. I feel like my teeth are going to rattle out of my head.

    Is this enough physical room for me to safely work?

    What is the ceiling height?

    What is on the walls? Metal?

    What about some foam panels, much like acoustic panels?

    We run a vision 1624 and yes it can get loud depending on what you are engraving, what cutter you are using and the depth of cut.

    We had a project to engrave a few thousand aluminum tags, one of the tags required a 0.090" cutter engraved to 18 thou, we had to do it in 3 passes or else the noise generated made everyone here uncomfortable.

    try either slowing the machine down, or doing multiple passes, that should help with the noise.
