Adjustable feet

Adjustable feet

Areas of use for adjustable feet

Adjustable feet are used when you need to compensate for minor height differences in the floor when, for example, a machine is to be set up. Since our adjustable feet come in several different models and sizes, almost anything can be leveled. They are mainly used for industry, furniture, and shop fittings. In mechanical engineering and plant construction, they are used to level entire production facilities. The adjustable feet include a threaded pin and a suitable foot, for example, a plate or an articulated foot. We use hex sockets, square grooves, screwdriver grooves, and hexagon grips in various combinations to make it easy to mount and adjust the feet.

Adjustable steel feet

If the adjustable feet are to be subjected to heavy loads, we recommend models where both the threaded pin and the plate are made of steel. This reduces the risk of material fatigue and increases process reliability. As a result of the material's properties, these are mostly used in dry indoor environments.

Adjustable feet in stainless steel

Stainless steel feet are very strong and have many uses. The leveling feet in stainless steel both resist rust and are as solid as steel feet, this makes them both suitable for outdoor use and indoors in damp environments.

Plastic plates

As the plate has a larger surface, the forces are therefore distributed well. This means that the plate does not necessarily have to be made of steel or other metal, but can be made of plastic, but to get as good stability as possible, the threaded inserts in the plastic feet are always made of metal.

Plates in zinc ware

Even plates made of zinc are very stable and can even withstand a little rust, you can almost compare them with plates made of stainless steel. To protect the surface, zinc ware plates are often offered with a powder coating.

Adjustable feet with anti-slip plate

With anti-slip plates, the adjustable foot stands stable. The rubber bottom parts are attached between the floor and the foot, this means that the foot cannot slide away, and it also acts as a vibration damper where it reduces and absorbs light vibrations and movement.

Vibration dampening adjustable feet

HILFA's adjustable feet work well for adjusting units and motors, for example. When these are in operation, they give off oscillations and movements that can be harmful to floors and foundations. To avoid this, you can use adjustable feet with vibration damping. They have a rubber center that absorbs most of the vibrations and minimizes the transfer to the environment.

Adjustable feet with articulated plates

Adjustable feet with articulated plates can be used for uneven or slightly sloping surfaces. The joint between the plate and the screw's attachment evens out small unevenness. This means that the surface of the foot always rests against the ground and provides the best possible stability.
