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 high-tech and valuable machines using made to order pedestals in the cleanroom environment.

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, or where the weight of the equipment causes concern over the floor’s ability to support it.

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.

Every equipment pedestal installation from IES guarantees:

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