Features on New TOUGH GUN TT3 Reamer Simplify Maintenance and Increase Reliability
Tregaskiss Posted 04/02/2013
Tregaskiss has introduced the next evolution of its popular TOUGH GUN™ Reamer — the new TOUGH GUN TT3 Reamer. With features that simplify maintenance and increase the product’s reliability in even the harshest welding environments, the TOUGH GUN TT3 Reamer helps extend the life of robotic MIG guns and consumables to increase productivity and profitability.
The TOUGH GUN TT3 Reamer features a new sprayer reservoir location on the opposite side of the unit (compared to previous models) to safeguard against overfilling and leakage onto internal electronics. Tregaskiss has also eliminated an electronic check valve, which allows for faster troubleshooting and results in fewer parts to maintain in the sprayer system. New plug and play internal replacement parts feature smart-keyed connections to ease assembly and provide quick in-cell troubleshooting.
The TOUGH GUN TT3 Reamer also includes simplified internal wiring by way of a centralized terminal strip, and the TOUGH GUN Anti-Spatter Sprayer now comes standard with this new model. The addition of a sprayer with an anti-spatter compound, like TOUGH GARD™ Anti-Spatter Liquid can help extend the life of front-end consumables, including the nozzle and contact tip, and reduce maintenance and operating costs. To ensure its reliability, the TOUGH GUN TT3 Reamer features internally mounted pneumatic valves and protected external setup switches, as well as seals on all points of entry to the reamer. External setup switches on the TOUGH GUN TT3 Reamer increase safety by allowing independent operation of the sprayer and the clamp and spindle during manual setup. Plus the cutter blade lifts into position but does not spin when activated by the spindle setup switch.
The TOUGH GUN TT3 Reamer is available with several optional features, including a wire cutter, dedicated motor lubricator, nozzle detection, TOUGH GUN Reamer Stand and more.
