Bespoke Equipment Pedestals for High-Tech Manufacturing

Bespoke Equipment Pedestals for High-Tech Manufacturing

IES is trusted by world class manufacturers and R&D establishments such as Xaar PLC and The University of Southampton to provide reliable equipment pedestals and machine base solutions. We install your hi-tech and valuable machines using made-to-order pedestals in the cleanroom environment.


Why Does Manufacturing Equipment Need Equipment Pedestals?

Precision manufacturing relies on raised floor systems to facilitate gas, electrical and plumbing supplies, as well as to maintain exacting hygiene standards. Vibration pedestals provide the vibration cancellation that is essential for many hi-tech manufacturing tools.

Vibration-minimising machine base platforms are required in any situation where highly sensitive machinery or equipment may be adversely affected by vibrations from the surrounding environment. They can also be needed where the weight of the equipment causes concern over the floor’s ability to support it.

Equipment Pedestals: How Can We Help?

We provide bespoke equipment pedestals which are specifically designed to overcome the demands placed by:

  • The dimensions of the equipment being supported
  • The degree of vibration expected
  • The exact load-bearing criteria

As well as the design and manufacture of a pedestal, it is just as vital to consider its ultimate installation location. Consideration should be made to any existing under-floor services that may need to be bridged or re-routed. It is also critical to identify any access restrictions prior to the installation.

With every equipment pedestal installation from IES, we guarantee:

  • The ability to work to tight schedules
  • Health and safety best practices, protecting both personnel and equipment
  • Clear pricing and comprehensive reporting

What Do Our Equipment Pedestal Clients Say About Us?

“The University of Southampton used IES to design and install an anti-vibration pedestal for their DUV scanner as part of a £1M upgrade to their cleanroom facilities aimed at providing the UK Silicon Photonics Research Community with a cost-effective multi-project wafer service. The ability of IES to provide a complete turnkey solution, including design, build, install and final equipment positioning, provided the University with a streamlined and practical solution.”

“We have built up a trusted relationship with IES who have been reliably providing us with tool moving, export packing and transport services for almost a decade. They have designed and installed over a dozen support pedestals in our Huntingdon clean room, suitable for our heavier and vibration sensitive production tools.”
