Picture this: You're in the market for a welding table, not just any welding table but one that effortlessly complements your craftsmanship, fuels your passion, and stands up to the test of time. You're in search of not just a product, but a partner in your work. Let me introduce you to the Siegmund Welding Table, where quality, durability, and precision converge to create a masterpiece.
To begin with, our tables are constructed from a proprietary blended Through Hardened Tool steel, renowned for its incredible strength and resilience. Our specific blend is ONLY available to Siegmund. Why is this steel only available to Siegmund? Simple – because Siegmund engineered and developed the very chemistry of the steel specifically for the Siegmund products, which makes it a Titan in the realm of materials. This is not your run-of-the-mill steel, or worse yet, cast material. Our tables can endure the harshest welding conditions, all thanks to this exceptional choice of steel.
Our commitment to durability does not stop at material selection. We incorporate a Plasma Nitration and Bar Coating Process, creating a fortress of corrosion resistant and weld spatter defiance. In terms of hardness, our tables are incomparable; as they can reach up to a whopping 900 Vickers or 66.5 Rockwell, depending on the series. Compared to the other welding table manufactures which sport 1/2 the Vickers of ours & believe it or not, most other tables are not even heat-treated.
But what sets a Siegmund table apart is not just the robustness but the precision it offers. We follow a stringent table flatness tolerance of +/-.020” across even our largest tables, which can be as large as a 5’x10’ with our imperial series and up to a 4,000x2,000mm with our metric series as well as a hole diameter tolerance & center to center tolerance of +/-.002”. We ensure precision down to the millimeter, or should we say to the thousandth of an inch, because we understand that accuracy is the secret ingredient to your success. Steel Tolerances heavily play a crucial role as they contribute to the enhanced precision in your work and enable you to weld faster, ultimately leading to a dramatic boost in your profits.
Our long-standing and proven models, the Extreme 8.7 and Extreme 8.8 Plus Series, continue to be a top choice for professionals and enthusiasts alike. Our tables are available in both imperial and metric versions, ranging from 1/2” thick to 1” thick tables. Most of our Siegmund Tables are reinforced with additional ribbing underneath, consistently offering a steadfast, unwavering platform for all your welding tasks.
The Siegmund 8.7 series Welding Tables are renowned for their quality and adaptability, offering high precision and extreme resilience due to their hardened steel build and innovative hole grid system. However, the all-new Siegmund 8.8 PLUS Series Welding Tables provide an upgraded experience, as the 8.8 PLUS series incorporates a highly advanced hardening process, resulting in a table surface that demonstrates the utmost superior resistance to wear, abrasion, heat, and deformation. The 8.8 PLUS tables feature higher side panels that provide extra work space for larger welding projects that require you to work off of the side of the table. Also, the 8.8 PLUS tables are designed with elevated ribbing underneath, further-enhancing structural rigidity.
In a market teeming with welding tables, some manufacturers lure customers with swappable replaceable plates, arguing that the plates can be swapped out when damaged. We respectfully disagree - we believe in providing a steadfast product that holds its ground from the get-go. A Siegmund table is designed to withstand the rigorring test of time and usage. If a welding table manufacturer is offering a so-called solution to your investment by saying that you would need to continuously replace your investment, why would you make that investment time and time again? Why should you replace a plate or worry about unevenness – Now listen, I’ve been to countless tradeshows and have personally seen the quality and consistency (or shall we say inconsistency) of multi-plate tables. When you take a flat piece of metal, and run it across the table, there is no consistency. With Siegmund, we will never tell you to replace the tabletop on our tables… ever! Our tables aren’t consumables in your shop, they are going to be the foundation of your work.
The question of origin is of the utmost importance, and in the case of Siegmund, it becomes an indisputable factor. Siegmund represents the epitome of German engineering, where every aspect, from precision machining to the plasma nitration process, is meticulously executed in-house, where Siegmund has full control of the quality. This unwavering dedication to quality serves as a resounding testament to the excellence that Siegmund stands for.
Be vigilant of the market. Questions like, where is your table made or what type of steel is used, are critical. Some tables come from China, Taiwan, Turkey, or India. More than likely, they will not disclose these details unless you ask. Always remember, with Siegmund, you're not just acquiring a table, but immersing yourself in the realm of German quality and precision. It goes beyond a simple transaction, as Siegmund represents the embodiment of exceptional craftsmanship and unwavering attention to detail.
Beware of imitations claiming to produce Siegmund tables or even similar tables. Let's put them to the test. Strike a real Siegmund table with a square tube. It withstands the hit with ease, demonstrating its unparalleled strength. Now, would the table you're considering endure the same? If you’re doing your homework, ask any of the other manufacturers or suppliers to send you a video of them truly doing the same. They may, but you will see the damage that is caused on their tables. Whereas with a Siegmund, not even an indication of a dent is left.
The market has seen an influx of cast tables. The problem with a cast table is the impurities that can lie beneath the surface such as air pockets & “hair fractures” that can reveal themselves over time. Manufactures who make their tables out of cast are posing tables that are not made to last and have no flexion. Without any flexion, a table will crack to the point where they do need to be replaced. So ask yourself… why should you invest your hard-earned money on a non-heat-treated, run-of-the-mill cast table when a Siegmund table is made to last a lifetime?
Choosing Siegmund isn't just a logical decision, it's the only decision for those who value exceptional craftsmanship, enduring performance, and laser-like precision. Ultimately, when you choose to move forward with a Siegmund Welding Table, you're not just choosing another tool for your shop, you're entrusting a masterpiece of engineering to fuel your creative pursuits. In essence, there's Siegmund, and then there's everything else.
