4 Common Types of Industrial Workbenches

There are many different types of industrial workbenches available based on your operational requirements. The following types of workbenches are a popular choice for various industries:

1. Packing Tables

If your operation receives and sends multiple shipments involving packaged goods each day, a packing table is likely the perfect choice for your needs. These workbenches offer a large flat surface that is ideal for placing products of all sizes, wrapping them, and packaging them. This large surface area can also accommodate various packing/shipping materials, allowing operators to store all required tools in the same place.

2. Machine Stands

Machine stands are designed to occupy a small amount of floor space while offering a stable and durable platform that can be used to set up, test, and repair machinery. The lip around the edge of the table prevents machinery from vibrating off the surface while a 2000 lb weight capacity ensures reliable support and safety for even the most demanding items.

3. HD Workbenches

If you require a flat and durable surface to work on various projects, the HD workbench is the perfect choice. Each unit features a 14-gauge coated metal surface to ensure that you will be able to work on heavy-duty materials without fear of damaging or breaking the workbench. Heavy-duty workbenches can also be easily moved as needed due to their swivel casters, making them a durable and versatile option for many applications and work environments.

4. HD Cutting Tables

Heavy-duty cutting tables offer a simple and flat surface that is ideal for various cutting and shaping jobs. Each cutting table is built with a shelf for more efficient storage of tools and access to materials. A drop-in bar grate surface is also included to make various cutting projects easier, safer, and more efficient, especially when cutting through materials.
