The AccuLock S consumables system is designed to address liner trim length errors and erratic wire feeding. The AccuLock S liner is locked and concentrically aligned to both the contact tip and the power pin without the use of fasteners, which provides a flawless wire-feed path that guarantees smooth, uninterrupted delivery of the wire to the weld puddle. Plus, the liner replacement process has been error-proofed so you can trim your liner accurately and easily every time, with no measuring.

Important Note:
The AccuLock S consumables system requires all AccuLock components: contact tip, diffuser, nozzle, liner, neck insulator, power pin and power pin cap.

The only difference you will notice is a slight change limited to the crimp area of the nozzle. The difference is shown below:

401-20-62 nozzle showing 6 jaw crimp
Part Number: 401-6-62 Assembled with a six-jaw crimper
401-20-62 nozzles showing 8 jaw crimp
Part Number: 401-6-62 Assembled with an eight-jaw crimper
401-20-62 nozzle showing 6 jaw crimper notches
Part Number 401-20-62 Assembled with a six-jaw crimper

Part Number 401-20-62 Assembled with an eight-jaw crimper

Timeline for Transitioning to Eight-Jaw Crimpers
(Actual ship dates will be dependent upon existing inventory levels at time of assembly transition)

  • July 2020: This transition has already begun on part number 401-6-62, with additional part numbers to follow
  •  August 2020: All heavy duty (HD) Tregaskiss nozzles will transition to the new style crimp and will be completed by August 31

      NEW PRODUCT – AccuLock R Consumables

      NEW PRODUCT – AccuLock R Consumables

      October 23, 2019

      Tregaskiss is pleased to announce the launch of new AccuLock™ R consumables, a system designed to maximize throughput and efficiency with minimal risk and effort.

      Image of AccuLock R consumables family including contact tips, nozzle and diffuser

      AccuLock contact tips last longer and are virtually impossible to cross-thread. The long contact tip tail concentrically aligns the tip within the diffuser prior to thread engagement, and this coupled with the tip’s coarse thread ensures quick, accurate replacement without cross-threading. An upgrade to AccuLock HDP contact tips can extend life by 10x or more in pulse welding applications.

      You can easily switch from TOUGH LOCK® and other consumables to AccuLock R consumables with no impact to tool center point (TCP), making this upgrade low effort, low risk, and high payoff.

      Plus, Tregaskiss AccuLock R consumables and Bernard® AccuLock S consumables share a common contact tip, so you can benefit from the reduced costs and simplified inventory of a common consumable platform™ if you have a combination of robotic and semi-automatic MIG guns in your facility.

      Reduce troubleshooting, downtime and rework with these new consumables. Learn more about Tregaskiss® AccuLock™ R consumables.

                NEW PRODUCT – AccuLock S Consumables

                November 1, 2018

                Bernard is proud to introduce new AccuLock™ S consumables, a system designed to address liner trim length errors and erratic wire feeding.

                Important Note: Most components of the AccuLock S consumables family are currently available. The complete offering will be coming soon.

                The AccuLock S liner is locked and concentrically aligned to both the contact tip and the power pin without the use of fasteners, which provides a flawless wire-feed path that guarantees smooth, uninterrupted delivery of the wire to the weld puddle. Plus, the liner replacement process has been error-proofed so you can trim your liner accurately and easily every time, with no measuring.

                The AccuLock S consumables system requires all AccuLock components: contact tip, diffuser, nozzle, liner, neck insulator, power pin and power pin cap.

                  PACKAGING CHANGE — Changes to Bernard Bag Packaging

                  November 1, 2018

                  Customers may notice that some Bernard® parts and consumables are arriving in different bags. We transitioned to a newly designed Bernard branded white bag design.

                  In addition to changing the artwork layout and color of the bags, the overall usability has also been improved. These new white bags offer a clear window on the printed side of the bag to make visual product identification easier. To increase the hanging capacity of the bags, we’ve added a second hanging hole on our larger bags and a new double-sealed header on all bag sizes. The sombrero shaped hanging holes provide compatibility with a wider variety of hook sizes and shapes.

                      PRODUCT UPDATE – New Liner Trim Length for Liners 6-Feet Long and Shorter

                      PRODUCT UPDATE –
                      New Liner Trim Length for Liners 6-Feet Long and Shorter

                      February 3, 2017

                      Tregaskiss now recommends trimming all rear-loading conventional and front-loading QUICK LOAD® liners that are 6-feet in length and shorter with a 1/2-inch stick out.

                      This new trim length provides performance improvements for the liner and cable, and for wire feeding overall. It also helps to reduce some strain on both the liner and the cable while still maintaining a proper liner seat in both the retaining head and the power pin.

                      Effective late February, all bagged 6-foot Tregaskiss conventional and QUICK LOAD liners will include a new 1/2-inch blue liner gauge along with a technical insert outlining these updated trimming instructions. The outside of each bag will also be marked with a sticker indicating a change to liner trim length.
                       

                      Liner trim length instructions


                      NOTE: Liners longer than 6-foot in length should still continue to be trimmed with a 3/4-inch stick out. No change to liner gauges or trim instructions for conventional or QUICK LOAD liners longer than 6-feet is recommended.

                        Tregaskiss has improved the crimp on our heavy duty (HD) nozzle offering. The profile on the crimping dies that form the ring crimp has been narrowed from a pad length of 0.450″ to a pad length of 0.390″ (see image below). This change significantly improves the quality of the crimp since it allows for enhanced integrity of the nozzle insulator.

                          Bernard has implemented a material change to all Bernard conventional liners. All liners were previously produced from high carbon music wire. All liners will now be produced from high carbon music wire with tin zinc plated coating.

                          Liners are still available in lengths of up to 25 feet (7.6 m) for various wire sizes. Part numbers will remain the same as released on June 2, 2014.

                              Designed for shipbuilding, trailer fabrication and other heavy equipment manufacturing operations.
                               

                              • Increased wall thickness and insulating material reduces number of changeovers caused by heat degradation
                              • Removeable nozzle cone lowers downtime and consumables cost by allowing operators to replace only the cone, the most frequently damaged part of the nozzle, without removing and replacing the entire nozzle and contact tip
                              • Nozzle cleaning made easy – removable cone allows greater access to nozzle body for spatter removal
                              • Fully compatible with standard Quik Tip™  Series 1 Contact Tips, gas diffusers and insulating caps – See Bernard Quik Tip Series Spec Sheet for part numbers

                                The QUICK LOAD® liner AutoLength™ system from Tregaskiss is designed specifically to minimize downtime, wire feeding and quality issues commonly associated with the liner being cut to an incorrect length.

                                Short liners are a common root cause of poor wire feeding. Further, a short liner does not have a chance of properly seating in the retaining head — often resulting in “bird-nesting” of the welding wire or premature contact tip failure and wear.

                                Wire feeding challenges reduce efficiency of the welding process and cause undesirable (and expensive) downtime. A system upgrade to this new innovative product can help improve welding efficiency and reduce costly downtime.

                                  This optional insulator for the 601 series water-cooled nozzle is now made of high-temperature Teflon material rather than ceramic. This new design is shorter than the previous ceramic version, but outperforms the previous design since it uses a more durable material.

                                  This optional nozzle insulator is available as a separate item: Part #601-5-75-4
