Levalators

Levalators improve large, precision and long bed machinery performance by increasing alignment accuracy, rigidity and stability. Large machines generally need good foundations both to re-inforce the machine bed and to reduce vibration by mass damping. Levalators are the vital connection between machine and foundation enabling machine and foundation to become one unit. A machine on weak supports may as well not have a foundation.

Levalators can be fully grouted in, thus achieving a virtually built-in or encastré support which considerably increases the stiffness of the machine base and creates a complete machine foundation integration.
