Surface Plate Stands
The Fed. Spec. GGG-P-463c recommends three fixed points to support the surface plate and minimize sag and warp. PRECISION surface plates are marked on the bottom of the plate to coincide with the supports on the top of the stand. Aligned with each other they uphold the accuracy of the plate. PRECISION standard stands are manufactured to support the weight of the surface plate plus 50 pounds per square foot load.
Stands are made for each plate to meet a 36” working height unless specified otherwise. Precision Granite uses a machinery gray paint to finish and protect the stand. Powder coat paint finish or custom colors are available for an additional charge.
If purchasing a stand for an existing surface plate, there is a short form to be filled out specifying the size plate you are planning on using with the stand.
