This is just a small collection of some of the bespoke benches we have manufactured.  If you are interested in any of the products or would like something similar please do not hesitate to contact us.

Wilkinson Welding Academy (UK)

When John Wilkinson OBE Chairman of Wilkinson Star in Manchester decided to build a brand new training facility to compliment his welding machine distribution business he looked at various methods of welding bay construction before settling for our new range of WeldSafe Acousto bays.

CWS manufactured, supplied and installed our Acousto welding booths in grey powdercoat finish. The welding column tables and downdraft benches were finished in blue powdercoat at customers request.

The academy comprises of eleven Weld Safe welding bays and one dedicated grinding / plasma cutting bay. As part of the contract CWS were also tasked with providing a state of the art extraction system with our partners Nederman. The academy opted for a low pressure system with fume arm in each bay as well as a high vacuum system for on torch extraction, power tools & general cleaning.

The grinding and plasma bay fully fitted with Weld Safe 1250 Downdraft bench and WeldSafe 860 Plasma Cutting bench to control both fume and sparks.

Welding bays feature Weld Safe training column tables.

All benches and columns were specially finished in blue powder coat finish as requested by client.


Witter Towbar Systems (UK)

The UK's top manufacturer of towbars approached CWS to assist in their upgrade programme.  

To solve the problem of afterburn when their products are removed from the robot cells we manufactured and installed nine Weld Safe 1500 downdraft fume benches.  After removal from the robot cell, bars are placed on the fume bench whilst the operator is free to load more parts, inspect or carry out any manual welding or fettling as required.

To upgrade their manual welding operations we manufuctured and installed a further seven Weld Safe 1500 downdraft fume benches which were installed in bespoke acousto welding bays covering 83 sq mt which we also manufacture.


Lysfasi Agricultural College (UK)

Lysfasi Agricultural College turned to CWS for a fast turnaround when they received the authorisation for a new welding facility at short notice.

Providing a full package for booths, column tables, downdraft grinding bench and fume extraction system.  The entire project was completed within ten weeks of the initial enquiry.

10 x Weld Safe Acousto welding booths (2000mm x 2000mm) c/w training column were installed with a 3000mm x 2000mm grinding bay housing a Weld Safe 1500 downdraft bench.


Rhino Products (UK)

When Rhino Products a long standing customer of CWS moved to their new manufacturing facility management were determined to find the best solution to their fume problems.

They had previously found fume capture arms to be inadequate for their production methods. This was due to a number of factors one being they used rotating jigs during the welding process. For the extraction arms to be effective they needed to be positioned close to the welding arc but the speed of production and length of components being welded made it impractical to constantly be repositioning a hood. As a result it was often found the operators positioned the hood above the welding jig resulting in fume capture close to zero.

We manufactured three Weld Safe downdraft benches and incorporated Rhino's existing rotating jig fixtures in to the benches. The resulting fume capture was astounding and far exceeded Rhino's expectations capturing and estimated 95% of fume produced without any change in the manufacturing process. The operators benefit from not having to pay attention to fume control measures at it is now constant over the area they are working.

Two benches 2300mm wide and one bench our largest made to date at 3000mm wide were installed.


All Downdraft tables are made specifically to order.
