Introducing the World’s Toughest, Most Durable Height-Adjustable Machine Bases

Heavy-duty applications require a heavy-duty foundation. Our EM-Series Machine Bases will provide a stable foundation for your industrial equipment, including tools, dies, precision instruments, assembly machines, robotics and more.  



Common applications for our machine bases include: 

Standard vs. Custom Built Machine Bases

With unlimited options, we offer our EM-Series machine bases in both standard and custom configurations. Standard bases utilize a common-size base to create dimensional changes to create a custom size. Custom bases typically have an extra week of lead-time and can add cost with engineering time.

Examples of custom: Adding an extra cross bar, changes to the fort tube dimensions or location, added supports or a full frame re-design. 

The EM Advantage

Expertly engineered and crafted to meet your specific needs. What’s your application? We can build the perfect solution from scratch. Aside from our expertise in designing the highest quality machine bases, here are a few reasons companies rely on EM-Series machine bases for their critical applications:
