Abstract: Precision machine tools are expected to operate at higher machine speed to produce precise products. Hence, its structures must have high structural stiffness and high damping along with dimensional and geometrical stability. Granite is the material used for metrological and precision machine manufacturing applications. Granite is also used in some of the high accuracy machine tool manufacturing. Considering the natural properties and limitations of granite a new emerging material named Epoxy Granite is evolved. In this paper, Epoxy Granite properties using Indian Black granite are studied. In particular, the maximum load-bearing and density of epoxy granite are focussed. Also, the combination which is best suited for the applications can be easily dragged out. Density is compared with maximum load-bearing and their relation is also put forward to simplify the selection process of epoxy granite.
