Abstract: The productivity and accuracy of machine tools now became most significant as the cutting conditions changes continuously. Therefore to withstand against these cutting conditions the machine tool structural material must have higher stiffness and damping. This review deals with various research works to study the stiffness and damping of epoxy granite or polymer concrete. It is reported that the epoxy granite shows improved damping and high strength to weight ratio than that of conventional machine tool structures of steel and cast iron.
