Similar to commercial buildings or houses, soil condition is a fundamental aspect of industrial building foundations. What primarily differentiates industrial buildings is the weight the foundations will need to support.
Industrial buildings are typically constructed on a concrete slab foundation. The industrial concrete slab is specially designed to withstand loads, impacts, chemicals, temperature changes, and vibrations.
Interior piles are the best way to stabilize a concrete slab. Interior pile foundations in industrial buildings are comparable to isolating machines on individual islands. Each machine sits on its own slab supported by piles that act as solid foundations.
It is possible and recommended to install piles to stabilize specific strategic areas. This is particularly advantageous for CNC machines (Computer Numerical Control).
Piles also reduce vibrations and dampen shocks, optimizing machine performance. Foundation stabilization through piles also reduces noise by providing better sound insulation.
- Stabilization of Machine Tools and Industrial Equipment
Machine tools, industrial equipment, and CNCs require optimal stability to operate precisely and reliably. Undesirable vibrations can not only affect machine performance but also impact the quality of the finished products. Given the industries in which these parts are used, exceptional precision is required. This is why stabilizing machine tools is essential.
It is possible to create a solid base that absorbs vibrations, reduces noise, and prevents unwanted resonances by using interior piles. These anti-vibration solutions enhance the structural stability of industrial buildings, ensuring the optimal performance of machine tools.
- Reinforcement of Slabs and Floors for Heavy Equipment
Heavy equipment such as presses, laser cutting machines, and automated production lines exert a considerable load on the slabs and floors of industrial buildings. It is necessary to reinforce these foundation elements to avoid deformations, sinking, and structural issues.
Interior piles provide an effective solution by transferring the load from heavy equipment to more resistant soil layers, evenly distributing the weight. This helps prevent damage, improve the safety of industrial facilities, and ensure long-term durability.
- Acoustic Insulation and Vibration Prevention
Excessive vibrations and noise can cause disruptions in the industrial environment, affecting workers’ health, measurement accuracy, and product quality.
Foundations with interior piles enable acoustic isolation of industrial equipment, reducing noise and vibrations transmitted to surrounding structures. This vibration isolation helps create a more comfortable working environment, improves machine precision, and minimizes the risk of premature failure.
In the industrial sector, building stability, performance, and safety are of crucial importance. Foundations with interior piles offer stabilization and reinforcement solutions that meet the specific needs of heavy equipment and precision machinery. These systems ensure optimal machine tool performance and enhanced industrial facility safety.
