Fixture tables comes in various sizes and shapes. Starting from 1 x 1m and goes up to more than 5m in length. These table with modular sizes in order to adjust the table sizes for different work projects.
If your welding projects have big and heavy metals involved it is better to go for larger tables. If your projects are smaller in dimensions but heavier (greater than 2 tons) in weight, it is better to go with 25mm thickness tables rather than smaller 16mm thick.
People having projects which are less than 200 kg in weights can opt for 12 mm thick table.
Depending upon the size of the fixture it is advisable that the complete fixture should be placed on the table
2) Hole center distance:
The standard hole center distance of welding tables is 50mm. When your welding projects are larger in size it is better to go with a 100 mm distance in order to reduce the table cost.

5) Type of table:
Generally, the fixture table comes with 3D, 2D, and Rotary types.
3D welding tables– Here YOU get 5 precision machined surfaces. These types of tables provide you with clamping options outside the table with help of side plates.
2D welding tables– The top surface is precision machined. Smaller workpieces can go with these types of tables.
Rotary welding tables– Has rotating top surface. This type of table is used for welding projects where the welder can sit at one place, and the welding position can be brought to the welder for increased accuracy in welding.
