A percussion instrument is a musical instrument that is sounded by being struck or scraped by a beater (including attached or enclosed beaters or rattles); struck, scraped or rubbed by hand; or struck against another similar instrument.. The percussion family is believed to include the oldest musical instruments,, following the human voice.

In an industrial context, percussion refers to a type of mechanical impact or vibration used in various processes, such as drilling, cutting, or forming materials. Here are some examples of industrial applications of percussion:

  1. Drilling: Percussion drilling is a technique that uses a drilling bit with a percussive mechanism to penetrate hard rock formations. The drill bit repeatedly strikes the rock surface, creating fractures and allowing the bit to advance.

  2. Forging: Forging is a process of shaping metals by using a hammer or press to apply percussion forces to the material. This process can create strong and durable parts for various industrial applications.

  3. Cutting: Percussive cutting techniques involve using a tool or machine that repeatedly strikes the material to remove excess material or create a desired shape. Examples include pneumatic hammers, chisels, and jackhammers.

  4. Mining: Percussive methods are used in various mining applications, such as breaking up rock formations, drilling blast holes, and driving tunneling equipment.

  5. Concrete Demolition: Percussion methods are commonly used to break up and demolish concrete structures, such as bridges, buildings, and roads.

Other devices or processes similar to percussion include:

  1. Vibration: A mechanical oscillation or movement that can be used in various processes, such as sorting materials or compacting soil.

  2. Impact Tools: Tools that use mechanical impact to drive fasteners or break up materials, such as impact wrenches or hammers.

  3. Ultrasonic Processing: A type of mechanical processing that uses high-frequency vibrations to perform cutting, drilling, or cleaning tasks.

  4. Explosive Techniques: Techniques that use controlled explosions to break up materials or remove unwanted rock formations.

  5. Hydraulic Pressing: A process that uses hydraulic pressure to shape or form materials, often used in metalworking and plastic forming.
