Weldsale Platens

Weldsale Platens are made of Cast Iron.  We use a high tensile strength Grey Iron.  This is VERY strong and durable.  It is NOT brittle (Note:  a white iron would be brittle, and we NEVER use that).

They are a flat, smooth work surface to which you can safely and securely clamp a myriad of various fabrications and constructions as you are building your project.

Weldsale Platens are very heavy duty.  They last for MANY years.  We don’t know how many.  Weldsale has been selling cast iron Platens – Weldsale brand, “Other” brands, and No Brand – for over 50 years.  Not one of our Customer – or anyone else – has ever called us and told us they wore one out.

Weldsale Platens are the infrastructure of many, many work shops.  These work shops include Shipbuilders, Bridge Builders, Heavy Equipment Manufacturers , making Locomotives, Rail Cars, Bulldozers, Back hoes, Excavators, Mining Equipment and Power Shovels, etc., etc.

Platens have  been used for building Race Cars, Motorcycles, Aircraft, Submarines, Truck Frames and Trailers, Ski Trail groomers, and many other forms of Transportation.

They are also used extensively in Television and Film studios, and in the Scenery workshops of Opera and Theatre Companies.  Many manufacturers of Architectural Millwork use Weldsale Platens.

Chemical Plants, Power Plants, and University Physical Plants use Weldsale Platens.

This is just a small variety of the types of Shops and Companies that use Weldsale Platens.  If you don’t already use Platens, we hope you will consider them for your Workshop.
