New Robotic Water-Cooled MIG Gun from Tregaskiss Maximizes Productivity
Tregaskiss Posted 08/17/2010WINDSOR, Ontario—To maximize productivity when welding thick plate and/or operating for prolonged duty cycles, Tregaskiss introduces its new TOUGH GUN™ Robotic Water-Cooled MIG Gun.
Featuring a high-flow gooseneck with four cooling channels and a water-cooled power cable, the TOUGH GUN Robotic Water-Cooled MIG Gun provides excellent cooling capacity to the front-end consumables to help extend their service life and allow for longer periods of welding. The MIG gun also features a sturdy stainless steel docking body capable of withstanding the harsh environments common to high-amperage welding applications, along with a durable conduit that swivels independently to provide rigid support for the liner, ensure smooth, consistent wire feeding and minimize downtime for maintenance. Adding to the ease of maintenance, the TOUGH GUN Robotic Water-Cooled MIG Gun has an accessible front housing, quick-change fittings and replaceable components, all features that support greater productivity by lessening the time needed to care for the gun.
The TOUGH GUN Robotic Water-Cooled MIG Gun uses Tregaskiss' Common Consumable Platform based on its TOUGH LOCK™ Contact Tips and QUICK LOAD™ Liners. These products are common across Tregaskiss Semi-Automatic, Automatic and Robotic MIG Guns, allowing users of multiple styles of guns to simplify and reduce their overall inventory of welding consumables.
The robotic MIG gun provides 600 amps welding capacity at 100 percent duty cycle with CO2 shielding gas or 60 percent duty cycle when welding with mixed gases. Further, Tregaskiss R&D testing and extensive field trials have proven this MIG gun is a reliable performer in the most demanding welding applications; including, thick-plate welding that is common in the heavy-equipment manufacturing industry.
This new robotic MIG gun represents the future of the TOUGH GUN robotic water-cooled product line and, as of December 31, 2010 it will completely replace Tregaskiss’ existing TOUGH GUN Quick Change Water-Cooled (QCWC) and Keyed Water-Cooled (KWC) Robotic MIG Guns.
