Strong Hand Tools (Santa Fe Springs, CA) developed the PRO28 28-mm modular fixturing system with five-face table in response to customer demand for an affordable heavy-duty metric welding table.
The five-face table for precision vertical and horizontal welding is the newest addition to the company’s BuildPro modular fixturing line of welding tables and fixturing kits. The key to the BuildPro system is the complete modularity of the individual, positionable, reversible, self-locating table plates. Patented locating bushings make it easy to position and reposition plates, making the table the ideal platform for short-run jobs, fixture replication for repeating jobs, or design changes to production weldments.
The tabletop’s plasma nitride surface treatment ensures superior performance and durability with a hardness of HV 750. Fixturing elements mate to the 28-mm CNC-machined holes in a 100-mm grid pattern for rapid setup of customized fixtures for accurate welding and repeatable work quality. Each of the table’s six legs supports 4,400 pounds (2,000 kg).
