Machine-Foundation Experts Solve Press-Pit Challenge for Automotive Stamper
The 22-ft.-deep excavation project required support by 30-ft. steel pilings; Delta pumped water from the pit through six well points. Then, after allowing the ground to dry, Delta used an epoxy-based non-shrink grout for the press pit that the firm says is five times stronger than concrete. During press installation, Delta placed four 3-ft. by 2-in.-thick leveling base plates atop the foundation, 20 ft. apart, that were within 0.001 in. variance—no additional leveling was required.
