The new solid machine feet from Winco are particularly suited for large and heavy systems and machines.

The machine foot GN 36 uses the weight of the machine to create a stable connection between the threaded stud and the foot. The threaded stud is not connected to the foot plate. Rather, the stud centres itself automatically at the contact point via the radius. The blue zinc-plated steel threaded stud is available with fine thread from M20x1.5 to M42x2 for precise leveling and comes with the matching lock nut. The forged steel foot plate is available in a diameter up to 7.87 inches (200 millimetres), has a powder coated black matte surface and can be ordered in three different types.

The second new machine foot GN 37 has a central fastening hole running clear through. This allows use of an anchor bolt. As with GN 36, the foot plate GN 37 can be ordered in types A, B and C. The machine feet GN 37 of types A and C can support between 8992 lbf (4 t) and 33721 lbf (15 t), depending on diameter, while the load capacity of type B ranges between 4496 lbf (2 t) to 24729 lbf (11 t).
