Offshore oil and gas industry welding needs are much different from those of a small welding shop or large fabrication line. Pipes, platforms, tower support structures and other critical infrastructures on offshore rigs must be repaired quickly, efficiently, and most importantly — safely. You cannot achieve this goal with subpar welding equipment.

Welders working on offshore platforms often make repairs in cramped working conditions while braving extreme elements like rough seas and high winds. Choosing MIG welding equipment that is durable, reliable, and versatile and that can perform in the most adverse situations is critical. Finding a partner that can support both semi-automatic and fixed automatic welding needs can be equally as challenging. 

Bernard® IronPro™ and Dura-Flux™ Self-Shielded Flux-Cored MIG guns are extremely durable and comfortable to hold and use. They are specifically designed to meet demanding needs and perform in harsh environments.

Designed for cobot (collaborative robot) welding applications, the Tregaskiss® BA1 cobot air-cooled MIG gun with high-performing AccuLock™ R consumables delivers through its proven durability and overall simplicity of design, keeping the cobot up and running no matter what the welding job is.

Achieve maximum uptime with Tregaskiss® fixed automatic MIG guns. Engineered for hard tooling applications requiring a simple, durable, and repeatable MIG gun, These fixed automatic torches can be configured with the same consumables as your Bernard® semi-automatic or Tregaskiss® robotic MIG guns to simplify your inventory.

    Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO)

    The wear and tear of your industrial equipment over time can cause unplanned downtime and production delays. Whether you are working in steel mill, agriculture or power generation applications welders are expected to respond quickly when welding equipment breaks down on these jobsites. It is our goal to help keep your jobsite up and running by providing you with the best welding equipment and consumables to conduct routine and emergency maintenance.

    Bernard® BTB semi-automatic MIG Guns optimize welder ergonomics and weld access by allowing you to configure your gun with a variety of necks, handles and trigger styles to match the demands of your application. When used with Bernard® AccuLock™ S consumables welders will spend less time troubleshooting and changing out contact tips and more time getting the job done.


    Oil and Gas

    Energy is the lifeblood of today’s economy and the basis of our collective prosperity and quality of life. As an operator, EPC firm, contractor or OEM building pipelines for oil, gas and petrochemical products, you are not prepared to compromise quality or sacrifice productivity to meet tight delivery schedules, quality specifications and budget constraints. You are looking for welding products and vendors with longstanding reputation for innovation, durability, technical know-how, and best-in-class service.  

    At Tregaskiss and Bernard, our goal is to partner with our customers in delivering world-class pipeline projects. We were the first to perfect the Dual Shield welding process (now known as Flux Core Arc Welding), a vital technology for field welding. Since then, we have continued to provide industry leading innovative, rugged and long-lasting welding guns and consumables. Whether you are in a fabrication facility in a metro area or a pipe trench in a remote rugged terrain, our welding solutions are built to deliver world-class quality results every time, and with increased productivity.
