If you’re drawing, drafting, inspecting, or need a table that can illuminate, then an industrial light table should be your next purchase. This type of table has a lightbox and many other optional features that will ensure you get the light you need in your office, lab, or any other setting. This post will go over what light tables have to offer, different types of tables, and what you need to know before making your next light table purchase.
Types & Models of Light Tables
We provide a variety of manufacturer direct, industrial quality illuminated tables for your needs. Our most popular choices include:
- Flat table with top light
- Adjustable height tilt-top light tables
- Flat table with overhead boom
- Light panels for inspection or drafting
Remember that these are our most popular models. There are many other light inspection tables orlight tables for drawingto choose from. The important thing to note is that you have options. The main options include adjustability and where the light source is coming from.
When it comes to adjusting, some of our tables allow you to adjust the height while others allow you to tilt the table to make it better for drawing or drafting. In terms of the light source, some of our light tables use a plastic or glass surface that illuminates from underneath while others also include an overhead light source that shines down. Both have their applications, so it depends on which one is best for your needs.
Would you prefer frosted glass or a chemically-resistant top? These are possible. Just make sure to specify that before ordering and contact us for a quote.
Reasons for Using Light Tables
These tables have many benefits over standard tables. These tables provide the direct illumination you need for tracing lines, reviewing images, or as inspection tables when looking at products, drawings, or anything else. You might think that you can just use a standard table with a light source like a lamp, but these light panel tables are far more convenient.
They give you strong, direct light exactly where you need it. This is helpful in drawing and drafting. It’s essential for certain industries when looking for clash detection with ducts or reviewing radiographs. Using this table makes these jobs easier and can even save money by reducing mistakes and enhancing productivity.
Many industries use these tables. Our quality designed tables can be found in graphic design offices, drafting and drawing companies, hospitals, and whenever checking for clashes from different industrial drawings.
When it comes to graphic design, drafting and drawing companies, these light tables for drawing make it much easier to manually trace underdrawings. This also allows you to illuminate thick pieces of paper for more professional results. Not only that, but these tables allow professionals to alter drawings with ease.
Medical offices use these as inspection tables to check radiographs and other medical images. These can be difficult to see without strong light. Simply place the image on the table and the light will help you interpret the image.
Clash checking is essential for many industries, such as plumbers, contractors, or anyone working with multiple plans at once. For example, a plumber might find that there is a clash with the ducts and other parts of the building. Resolving the problem can save money or make repairs easier.
Key Features & Benefits
There are several key features and benefits. Since all our tables are proudly made in the USA, you can expect us to use only the best, most durable materials. We can also customize the tables to fit your needs. From enhanced lighting to superior materials like frosted glass, let us know what you need and we can accommodate you.
One of the key features is the light source. You can choose to have thelight hang overhead, or it can a florescent or LED lightbox located within the table itself. The lights can be dimmed with an included remote so that you get as much or as little light as you need.
You can also choose between standard or tilt tables depending on your needs. If you know that you will never need to tilt the table, then standard ones should be fine. If you’re using this for drawing or want to inspect images at an angle, then get a tilting table. This gives you improved comfort while using these light inspection tables.
What You Need to Know Before Buying
Since these are manufacturer direct and we build the tables ourselves, we can easily customize the tables to your needs. This will help you see which factors are important when choosing these tables.
You’ll first want to consider the light itself. Do you need an overhead light along with the internal light in the table? You might also need a stronger overall light, which we can accommodate. All tables come with dimmers as a standard feature.
You need to get a table that’s large enough for your needs. You should be able to place drawings or images on it without worrying about the table being too small. We offer many sizes and can even make larger or smaller ones based on your needs.
Tilting is a common feature that you should consider. Standard tables are good if you don’t mind standing over the images, but a tilting table gives you more support when drawing or sitting down.
There are several surfaces to choose from. You can choose a hardened industrial plastic that is translucent and durable. You can also choose tempered glass or frosted glass if you would prefer them. Chemically-resistant surfaces are also possible for more versatile industrial applications.
Light panel tables are useful for many different industries and applications.
