New TOUGH GUN™ G2 Series Robotic MIG Gun Provides Accuracy, Durability and Repeatability
Tregaskiss Posted 03/10/2010To maximize durability, repeatability and accuracy on demanding robotic welding applications, Tregaskiss has enhanced all the top features of its popular TOUGH GUN™ MIG Guns in its new sleek and durable air-cooled TOUGH GUN G2 Series Robotic MIG Gun. The TOUGH GUN G2 Series features a next generation QUICK LOAD™ Gooseneck System with resilient, thick-walled aluminum armor that resists bending in the event of a collision, and its superior alignment features maintain an accurate, repeatable TCP (tool center point) to ensure quality welding performance. Tregaskiss has also merged the clutch (or solid mount) with the connector housing to increase the gun’s working envelope, while also improving joint accessibility and providing excellent performance—no matter how challenging the weld.
To ease routine maintenance and reduce downtime, the gun’s QUICK LOAD Robotic Gooseneck System incorporates a hand nut mechanism that requires no tools during neck replacement. Tregaskiss also offers quick-change unicables for the TOUGH GUN G2 Series that can be replaced quickly by removing a single fastener.
The TOUGH GUN G2 Series uses Tregaskiss' Common Consumable Platform based on its TOUGH LOCK™ System 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.
At 60 percent duty cycle, the TOUGH GUN G2 Series provides 500-amps of air-cooled welding capacity using mixed gases.
