Challenge Precision Granite Surface Equipment

Surface Plates

picture

Granite surface plates offer very accurate, stable, precision surfaces that can be used for layout, gaging, and inspection. These plates also can be used as bases for fixtures, coordinate measuring machines, and other machines. They are self supporting, have a low co-efficient of expansion, and have a low degree of surface deflection under normal loads. Challenge granite surface plates meet or exceed Federal Specification GGG-P-463c and are in compliance with MIL-STD-45662A
