If you own a Siegmund welding table, you own a piece of engineering art. Designed with meticulous precision, every Siegmund table delivers unmatched durability and flexibility. However, to ensure its longevity and maintain optimal performance, proper maintenance is vital. In this post, we provide you with a comprehensive guide on how to care for your Siegmund welding table.
Cleanliness is Key
Firstly, it's crucial to keep your welding table clean. After finishing your welding tasks, remove any leftover materials or residue. Welding debris can cause staining and eventually lead to surface damage. Use a wire brush to gently remove any spatter and then wipe the surface down with a clean, dry cloth. Remember, a clean table not only preserves your workspace but also ensures accurate welds.
Make it a habit to inspect your table regularly. Look for any signs of damage or wear, such as dents, warping, or rust. Even with the excellent durability of Siegmund tables, which undergo plasma nitration for extreme toughness, occasional surface wear is possible, especially with heavy usage.
Regular Surface Treatment
Siegmund welding tables are renowned for their exceptional surface hardness and resistance due to plasma nitration and BAR-coating. However, to ensure your table stays in top condition, consider treating the surface with a rust inhibitor, such as WD-40. This can add an extra layer of protection against oxidation, especially in humid environments. We also recommend our Anti-Spat spray before and after welding, in order to keep any weld spatter to a minimum.
Protect When Not In Use
When your table is not in use, consider covering it. While Siegmund tables are designed for robust industrial environments, they can benefit from being shielded from excess dust, debris, and moisture.
Maintenance of Fixtures
Your Siegmund fixtures also require attention. Ensure they are clean, rust-free, and lubricated regularly. Proper maintenance of fixtures will not only extend their lifespan but also guarantee precise and secure clamping during operations.
Caring for your Siegmund welding table is an investment in your work's future. Proper maintenance ensures that your table continues to provide a sturdy, precise, and versatile platform for all your welding projects for years to come. Remember, a well-kept welding table not only stands the test of time but also delivers optimal performance, making your welding tasks easier and more efficient.
