Cast Iron Leveling wedge
Bilz cast iron Precision Leveling Wedges are manufactured in three different models: Free Standing (PK model), Bolt-On to the machine (PKA model), Bolt-Thru to the foundation (PKD model). The leveling wedge design provides the highest precision leveling range of ± 0.0004″ (± 0.01 mm). Once the height is set, the self-locking design of the leveling wedge prevents any changes to this setting. The machine is supported by the large support surface of the precision leveling wedge which provides better support and rigidity when compared to leveling elements using a threaded rod for height adjustment. In applications when the goal is for precision leveling only, these precision leveling wedges can be supplied without any vibration isolation rubber pads. If vibration isolation and precision leveling is needed, any of the Bilz vibration isolation rubber pads can be bonded to the leveling wedge which will provide both shock and vibration isolation as required for your particular type of application.
The Bilz cast iron Precision Leveling Wedges, models PKAK and PKDK are equipped with the optional spherical seat installed on the top surface of the wedge. The spherical seat option is used with there bottom of the machine foot and the floor are not parallel. This is of concern when installing machines with long beds and/or critical alignment. The Bolt-on to the machine wedge with spherical seat is the PKAK model; Bolt-through to the foundation with spherical seat is the PKDK model.
There are eight different types of vibration isolation pad materials available to provide the best technically and economically optimal solution for any vibration problem. These vibration isolation pad materials were designed with specific kinematic requirements of lathe, milling, grinding, and plastic injection molding machines, as well as stamping and punch presses. A table is available for you to view the most common applications and the Bilz recommended vibration isolation pad materials for them.
