Structurally Stronger, Higher Quality, Faster Delivery


custom welded bases

Built to your requirements – Machined to your tolerances

Since our inception it has been our goal to provide our customers with a welded base that exceeds your expectations in quality, construction and timing. We offer bases custom built to your design requirements in both aluminum and steel construction.

Bases can be built to most any shape and size. Each base is built specifically for you and to your specifications at the time of order. If required, we will work with you to provide recommendations on construction to ensure your order will fulfill your requirements. After fabrication our bases are thermally stress relieved to reduce residual stresses and provide dimensional stability. At this time, they can also be powdercoated to a variety of different colors. We use powdercoating to provide a durable finish that will not deteriorate during final machining of your part.

The next step in our process is the finish machining. With each base we machine and chamfer the top plate to size as well as profile the bottom feet. Each base is then surface machined top and bottom. The final step in our production process is our quality and conformance check. All our bases are inspected to industry leading flatness tolerances on our granite surface plates. A report is then completed and provided to our customer. Our goal is not to provide an equivalent to flatness standards set by other suppliers, but to exceed them.

With each base provided by NKB you can be assured you have the key component in any successful construction, a solid foundation to base your build from.

In todays rapidly growing and fast paced society we know timing can always become an issue. To speed up your manufacturing process we offer additional machining services for our bases. Those services range from adding grid lines, engraving or special features. As well as drilled, reamed and tapped holes. With these services you can assemble your fixture or gage immediately upon its arrival.
