Novel, Siegmund Group modular S4 System welding tables offer shorter working time thanks to an ingenious rapid clamping system. The heart of the S4 system is the universal ball bolt which can be fixed reliably in any place with one hand in a second or so, thereby greatly reducing setting up or changeover times. Comparative tests with conventional work tables and screw clamps showed a potential saving in working time of up to 40 per cent. “This quick clamping system will establish itself in the coming years as a worldwide market leader, especially so because the range of applications has not yet been fully realised," asserts Bernd Siegmund. With more than 100 additional tools, the S4 system is the ideal equipment for the manufacture of individual welded parts and prototypes for both single and series productions, either for manual and/or robotic applications.
