Epoxy Granite Machine Frame || How To adam-bender

Epoxy granite makes an amazing machine base, but there is a bit of work that goes into it. This is a full tutorial on how to achieve fantastic results. It's broken into 4 parts. 1. Theory 2. Experimentation 3. Build. 4. Results! 1. Theory. Building a solid base for machinery can be a daunting task. The base needs to be strong, stiff, absorb vibrations, and be mechanically accurate. This is a lot to ask.

How-to Guide on Building Cast Epoxy Granite Machine Bases

06/05/2018 where epoxy granite is of most use is when its not possible to get a cast iron casting made (mostly limitations regarding what the foundry is capable of doing). so for years now many machine tools are made by filling the inside of the cast iron castings with epoxy granite. -but you only apply as much as you need. filling the machine solid lowers its resonant frequencies and that is often not what you want.

11/03/2015 The idea is to mix various size hard quartz, granite etc aggregates in a mix that minimizes the space between them and 8-15% epoxy as a binder only. you ram it into a mold and if possible vibrate it to further compact things. The material will take accurate impressions of the mold and can cast flat to .001" if done correctly.

Machine base in epoxy granite internal steel structure

Epoxy granite with proper grain to grain contact will be dynamically stiffer for the same mass as a steel structure. The steel reinforcements you have seem to be closer to the centroid which won’t help all that much with stiffness. The steel pieces are also transferring almost all the shear load which will largely negate the benefits of EG (damping through shear because of difference in

German Epoxy Granite Milling Machine Here's an awesome project I recently heard about on CNCZone: That machine is solid! I few details I gleaned from one of the articles on the German site (you have to register!): The epoxy granite mixture being used is 30% granite gravel, 30% joint sand, 30% fine quartz sand, and 10% R L & G epoxy resin. Based on my research, that should make for a fine epoxy

Big Epoxy Granite machine, Which frame is better ? Page 2

17/09/2020 Hello ! I am in the design phase of my new CNC machine. I am aming to 120x60 cm working area, And most of my milling will be in Aluminum, Brass, And some steel! The frame will be epoxy granite and a welded laser cut steel skeleton inside. I prototyped 2 design to choose from, Here's my 2 prototypes 28848 I really like the U base design (#1) its easy to enclose & Chip control is great.

Polymer Composite Bases for Machine Foundations

Polymer composite bases are accepted worldwide as a modern alternative for machine base design. If designed properly, the benefits offer gear designers and engineers another option for their base design. Polymer composite bases provide a stable and repeatable foundation to mount critical equipment that will last the life of the machine.

I expect the whole machine to come in around 2700-3300 lbs(1225-1360 kg) Envelope for each axis is: X: 22-24"/560-600mm Y: 15"/380mm Z: 18"/460mm Trying to find a 7-8 hp spindle.
