Fabreeka isolation materials and machine mounts provide vibration isolation and leveling for proper machine tool installation.
In certain applications, it is not desirable or feasible to mount a machine directly on vibration isolators.
Installing vibration isolators on a machine whose frame/bed requires a stiff connection can cause bending, relative displacement (sag) and other problems, even when the floor is sufficiently rigid. In this case, the frame/bed is attached to a properly designed concrete foundation, which is then supported on the appropriate isolators for the application.
Certain types of machine tools are not inherently rigid and therefore need a rigid support to maintain their prescribed accuracy. In other types of machinery (such as printing presses) consisting of articulated components, a rigid support may be needed to maintain the proper alignment of working parts.
Designing foundations supporting machine tools requires sound engineering procedures for a reliable result. An incorrectly designed foundation is extremely difficult to correct once installed. Engineering disciplines involved in the proper design procedures for isolated support foundations include theory of vibrations, geotechnical engineering (soil characteristics) and structural design/analysis.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
