Machine Bases: Machine Platforms & Plates
Precision Grinding manufactures custom steel machine bases.
Rather than setting new machinery upon a
bare concrete floor, machine manufacturers may recommend
mounting large manufacturing equipment onto a machine base or a
floor plate. A steel platform serves as a precise foundation for
the attached apparatus in addition to serving as structural support for the concrete foundation. Many times, these machine platforms have pre-drilled holes for mounting to a concrete floor. The bulk of the cut-outs and drilled holes serve to mount
the machine onto the plate.
A heavy machine might be specified to be built upon a
pre-fabricated, precision steel table
or base. When a machined plate supports the resting machinery, the equipment can be worked on from below,
increasing clearances, while hydraulic fluid reservoirs, coolant hoses, and electrification can be routed from beneath.
Machine Bases & Steel Tables
Our Blanchard Grinders can handle plates up to 14,000 lbs.
with a maximum 128" corner-to-corner swing. Our close tolerance
surface grinders can reach 30"h x 36 "x 173" at:
0.001" parallelism tolerances
► ± 0.002" per foot flatness requirements
► ± 0.001" thickness requirements
With some of the largest grinders in the country, we offer
Blanchard & Surface grinding services and routine maintenance services for select steel mills, machine shops, and steel fabricators.

CNC Vertical Milling Machine can also drill horizontally when we attach the 90°
right angle head.
The CNC Vertical Machining Center pictured below is also capable of performing
Horizontal Machining cuts, including end milling, face milling and hole drilling. The Takumi has a simultaneous tool capacity
of 40 cutting tools. Our CNC machines can probe to better than 0.001"
accuracy, measuring precision cuts to one- thousandth inch for boring, cutting, drilling, tapping, counter-sinking, reaming,
and roughing tools, among others. Probing accuracy and inspection become important because it's difficult for any two experienced machinists to accurately measure ±0.001
the same every time.
This base plate measures 2" x 65" x 114". Drilling sets of 4 holes.
