High precision frames
We use our technological know-how, expertise and experience to excel in the production of complex metal, granite or hybrid frames and cabinets, and complex machined components and modules for high-mix, low-volume, high-complexity markets such as the semiconductor, analytical, life sciences and digital printing sectors.
When building highly complex mechatronic products, selecting the right partners in the supply chain is crucial. NTS goes one step further. For many of these critical components, NTS does not want to depend on external suppliers and produces these components in-house. This brings huge advantages during product development as well as system assembly.

In 2020, NTS got involved in a comprehensive and specialist project for an important customer. The customer asked for a measurement set-up especially designed to perform extreme long-term measurements for huge components used in the semiconductor industry. Initially, the measurement set-up would consist of a number of granite parts, but what started with a relatively small assignment gradually became an immense project. In this whitepaper, Ronald van Mil (Managing Director NTS Botech), Nico Tan (Finite Element Specialist), Arie Brouwers (Quality & Production Engineer) and Ruud van den Heuvel (Programmeur/Werkvoorbereider) share their vision on:
- High-precision machine frames and stability advantages of granite;
- The unique approach to one of the biggest granite projects;
- The design and dynamic calculations by our Development & Engineerign division;
- The manufacturing of a measurement set-up of 4x4x4 meter.
High Precision Granite
Granite is often used to reach the required stability or flatness. NTS designs and manufactures these granite components up to 7 x 2.5 meters in-house. The combination of steel and granite material brings the possibility of hybrid frame technology. Large size milling, gluing various components together and assembling with air bearings make up one of the unique selling points.
