By designing steel foundations in the rotational speed range of machines without using any special shapes, we are able to ensure smooth running of your machines

Modern production and working machines are becoming more and more powerful: Round-the-clock production, large dynamic ranges, high speeds and powerful machines place ever-increasing demands on load-bearing structures and foundations.

Foundations must absorb vibrations , avoid resonances and ensure smooth running.
AKUVIB knows exactly which requirements your foundations must meet and works out possible foundation design variants. In addition to planning and engineering, we also advise you on the design and tuning of vibration dampers.

We offer engineering from a single source: Specification, design, static and dynamic calculation, dimensioning and execution.
