Some of the biggest, most remarkable machines and robotic devices in the world are supported by our machine bases. Custom precision bases with tight surface tolerances, significant vibration damping, excellent thermal stability, and outstanding corrosion resistance give a strong foundation for the machine industry. They position machinery at the appropriate heights for operation, lift them off the ground, and facilitate maintenance.
High speed machining cells, turning centres, CNC knee mills, milling machines, waterjet cutters, laser cutters, grinders, screen printers, wafer profilers, x-ray and MRI scanners are examples of common uses of our machine bases. We manufacture standard and custom bases, dial plates, risers, angle plates, pedestals for gaging, machining, assembly, testing, robotics, electronics applications.
Machine Base Types
These bases for industrial robot arms extend vertical reach, range of motion, and improve safety around the area.
These machine bases have shelves, drawers, and doors to increase the functionality of the product.
Common in labs and food processing, these tables can be adjusted based on height to accommodate any equipment.
These tough fixed-height tables can be used to raise machines and equipment up to 24″ above the ground.
You can organize your equipment on these mobile machine bases that can be used for printers, air cleaners, and more.
Machine Base Features
Increases the lifetime of your machinery due to reduced vibration emitted by said machinery.
Improves the working environment and safety because of decreased noise emitted by machinery.
Our fabrication practices are sustainable, and since machine bases improve performance of your machinery, they are ecological.
Our machine bases resist corrosion and protect your machinery from corrosive floor spills, etc.
Machine Base Features
We offer you a choice of many optional features to add to your machine bases, such as:
- Coolant trough
- Bolted top plate
- Side panels, doors
- Lifting holes
- Forklift tubes
Depending on the application and design, machine base molds and structure can be manufactured from any mix of wood, fiberglass, aluminum, different types of steel, or other materials. Simply send us an inquiry and we will engineer the perfect machine base for your industry. Most commonly, stainless steel is used for machine bases, supports, and frames. One or more base plates may also be nickel-plated, oxidized, or anodized to help them resist corrosion.
Machine Base Fabrication
We offer the best machine base molds and tooling fabrication to suit your application. Depending on your choice of material, we will professionally cut, bend, weld, and bolt together your machine base. In addition, we will apply the proper surface treatment and your chosen finish to the surface of the base. We will then test, assemble, and ship your order worldwide.
With our precision capabilities, you will receive reliable machine bases perfectly tailored to your equipment and requirements. Although you can choose from standard heights of 24”, 30”, and 36”, you can always specify custom dimensions.
Stationary machine bases are manufactured from heavy materials and are designed to be installed in one location. These are great for heavy equipment made to stay in one spot. Such bases offer exceptional stability.
Mobile machine bases feature integrated wheels or handles and are constructed of lightweight materials. Offering ease of movement, these bases are ideal for small equipment that is constantly relocated from place to place.
Industries Using Machine Bases
Frame supports for MRI machines, X-ray machines, CAT scanners, and blood testing and analysis devices are a few examples of typical applications in the medical industry. Nonmagnetic machine bases improve the precision of these machines.
Equipment for lithography, laser PCB drilling, surface profiling, handling and storing wafers, dicing, flip-chip, and dispensing machines all benefit from our machine bases.
Custom-sized housekeeping bases are frequently used to elevate utility or telecommunication cabinets and enclosures off the floor or ground so they can be protected from moisture and are easier to access.
Our machine bases are used for ultra-precision machining, diamond turning, and precision grinding machines, as well as optical lenses, mirrors, and other mechanical components with sub-micron and nanoscale surface finishes.
Bridge CMMs, horizontal-arm CMMs, and various testing tools are examples of typical uses in metrology. The accuracy of the roundness, concentricity, flatness, eccentricity, and squareness tests performed by metrology equipment is enhanced with our machine bases.
Laser scanner beds, internal and external drums for imagesetters, CTP plate-setters, and other imaging devices used in graphic arts and printing are examples of typical applications for machine bases in the prepress industry.
