    Abstract

    The paper presents a novel technique for accurately measuring the static stiffness of a machine tool concrete foundation using various items of metrology equipment. The foundation was loaded in a number of different ways which simulated the erection of the machine, traversing of the axes and loading of the heaviest component. The results were compared with the stiffness tolerances specified for the foundation which were deemed necessary in order that the machine alignments could be achieved. This paper is a continuation of research previously published for a FEA of the foundation
