American Grinding's Brute Heavy Duty Machine Bases support some of the world's largest, most impressive machines and robotic devices. Our bases are used in just about any situation, in every industry from the smallest base to some of the largest in the world. American Grinding's quality stands alone. Compare our quality and the appearance of our base to any other, and you'll see the difference. That's why American Grinding has been the leader in machine bases for years. Following are just some of the things that make them so popular:

  • They're fabricated with exacting precision from start to finish.
  • They require less engineering time; all you need to do is fill out a Brute Data Sheet with your machining specifications.
  • They're available in four standard models that can be customized to suit your needs. Click above links for a list of the CAD drawings available for downloading.
  • They're always competitively priced.
  • They can accommodate special burnouts or other modifications.
  • All top plates are Blanchard ground to a flatness of .002 per linear foot.
  • All welds are dressed.
  • All mounting pads are drilled and tapped.
  • Finished surfaces are treated with rust-inhibitive oil.
  • Unfinished surfaces are shot blasted and painted.
  • All bases are protectively packed for shipment worldwide.

Brute Bases can be built with optional features, including:

  • Mattison surface ground for greater precision
