RE: [rp-ml] Vibration sensitivity of SLA equipment?

My facility is no more than 2 miles from a huge lime stone quarry and we
have no problems. Our whole building shakes occasionally when they are
blasting. With our situation this only happens on the average of one
time a week.

Subject: [rp-ml] Vibration sensitivity of SLA equipment?

Hi, all -
We are planning on moving our facility this next year, probably just a
few miles away from where we are now. However, one of the questions
that was just asked is, "do you have any concerns about railroad tracks,
thus vibrations, near the building?"
I'm pretty sure that having trains run right by an SLA machine would be
a bad idea, but can anybody tell me what a safe distance from tracks
might be? Any real-life experience with trains and vibrations?
Thanks in advance,
Steve Stewart
