A cost effective material choice for machine bases and metrology components.
A solid solution
Precision granite is the material of choice for machine bases and metrology components for a variety of reasons including machinability, achievable flatness, durability, ease of cleaning, and environmental stability.
Precision Granite vs Diabase
At Microbas we typically propose diabase for our clients due to its superior mechanical and environmental stability. However, precision granite is a material that has attractive cost versus performance characteristics and is a cost effective solution where requirements on precision and dimension stability are lower. We provide solutions in a variety of precision granites including Swedish granites, Jinan Black (China) and Impala Black (South Africa).
