Why using an aluminium-cooper alloy as welding table surface?

1 Clamping system without contact to any ferritic material

Förster welding systems, as sole manufacturer of welding tables for stainless steel processing, offers you the optimum base for the professional and fine handling of sensible and non-ferritic materuals.

Welding tables with rails made of an Al/Cu alloy offer the safest basis for a professional stainless steel processing.

A necessary requirement for quality stainless steel processing is, apart from the physical separation between steel and stainless steel, the right non-ferritic 3D welding table to process them.

The correct processing of stainless steels (austenitic) requires a strict separation from any ferritic material, since even the slightest adhesion or scratch on the welding table surface can cause more corrosion (eg pitting corrosion).

2 Al/Cu alloy to avoid any damages to visible surfaces

Vulnerabilities within the processing can only be adjusted through a complete "immersion pickling". Consequently, the stainless steel fabricator is increasingly interested since the very beginning in a safe surface for the welding table in frequent contact to his parts.

For this case table surfaces with T-Slots made of a special Aluminum/Copper alloy have proven to be advantageous because they cannot cause any ferritic scratch. And also due to their high tensile strength, with a low surface hardness, they also provide 3D clamping and positioning.

Table design - Open your table surface to new ideas

Partially covered welding tables and surfaces may be not so common, but they offer advantages in many areas letting large parts "stick through" the surface or allowing an easier access to critical welding areas.

3 Durability through low welding spatter adhesion

The high thermal conductivity prevents almost completely spatters from getting attached to our welding tables.

4 Welding tables almost unlimited working life

The modular interchangeable rails enable permanent accuracy on the table surface and therefore durable high-quality parts as a result.

5 Completely continuous positioning in the grid-free T-Slot

The T-Slot most exclusive advantage appears when it is necessary to weld casings and containers. In this case, the completely free positioning through the T-Slot makes the working process easier, consequantly leading to important time savings. Only with a welding table based on T-Slots you will be able to reach every angle by using less clamping elements than with other grid-related systems.

The clamping plungers are wisely made ​​of bronze. Extension with additional clamping elements and accessories or copper rails to reinforce the structure (as slot liner) are always available.

The T-Slot position is protected from any welding spatter.
