Levelling feet have specialty plating for harsh environments

Now available from WDS Component Parts, a comprehensive range of adjustable machine levelling feet includes a wide range of sizes and styles to suit most application demands, the range also include nickel plated designs for added corrosion protection. Most machines, whatever their use and environment, need to be installed so that they are level. In some cases, this is critical and high accuracy must be achieved; in others it is less important, and a tolerance measured in millimetres may be acceptable.

WDS levelling feet, or machine mounts as they are also known, are threaded so can be adjusted to ensure the working parts of the machine they are supporting are level. They can be supplied with the addition of a swivel joint to support the pads, which allows them to rotate in all directions and thus sit firmly on floors that are not completely even or which are sloping.

To meet all the different needs from such a wide range of potential users, WDS has developed a full range of levelling feet that encompasses different sizes, styles and materials of construction. For instance, they can be supplied with plastic rather than steel pads which won’t mark or damage floors and which absorb a degree of vibration. For applications where exposure to harsh chemicals is likely, WDS offers products with special plating. Zinc plated steel is available as standard, with nickel plated steel or stainless steel (grade 303, 304 or 316) for harsh and/or clean environment applications.

The number of different feet available means users can be confident that WDS has the ideal option for any application. The range is available in a wide range of sizes, from 40mm pad diameter to 100mm pad diameter, while the stems can have metric or imperial threads.
