About the presentation
As manufacturing equipment, electronic devices, and medical instruments require ever-higher precision, the machinery that makes these products must deliver greater speed and accuracy. Meanwhile, the cast iron and steel used in the bases and foundations of such production machinery actively amplify the vibration generated by its operation – serving to limit its speed and accuracy.
To solve this problem, original equipment manufacturer (OEM) machine suppliers are adopting an organic solution – mineral casting technology – for its exceptional vibration damping, chemical resistance, and environmental sustainability. Originally incorporated in the bases and platforms of metal grinding machines, mineral casting is applied in the solar, electronics, packaging, and medical device sectors. The results include impressive technical, economic, and environmental benefits for both machine builders and their customers.
