A foundation for a new special drilling machine with the size of 36 x 17 x 4m had to be engineered. This huge foundation will be realized in an existing production facility under running production conditions. The boring machine will handle work pieces up to 160 tons weight. The requirements of a low tolerance in deforming and a technical solution for uncoupling vibrations were challenging.
