LAYOUT OF ANCHORAGE SYSTEMS

The special anchorage system from CFM Schiller is integrated into the foundation. Anchor points make a dynamically fatigue rated joint between the base plate or clamping plate and the foundation.

The layout of every anchorage system is based on the dynamic forces in every direction that act on the test rig or machine. The CFM Engineers use these specifications to determine the number of anchor points and their necessary cross-section area for the screw joint. Standard joints range from M20 to M42 while loadings of multiple meganewtons can be sustained with anchor sizes M100 or larger.

The anchorage system is dimensioned with an extremely large safety factor, without it causing a significant increase in costs. This ensures that the same fatigue rated connection can be used for other applications with higher loadings – after consultation with CFM Schiller. The special anchors transmit applied forces via very large surfaces into the surrounding concrete structure. Therefore, the concrete is never locally overloaded granting an extraordinary service life of the foundation with anchorage system.

The complete service package from CFM Schiller comprises the layout of the anchorage system, seismic mass planning, as well as selection and design of the clamping plate. For you as our customer, this guarantees that the dimensioning of the anchorage system is perfectly consistent with size and load capacity of the foundation as well as the dimensions of the clamping plate. The design of the foundation reinforcement is individually adapted to the anchorage system and installed simultaneously.
