PRODUCT UPDATE —

Tregaskiss® TOUGH GUN® TA3 Torch Solutions for Yaskawa® Motoman® Robots

December 18, 2019

Overview

Tregaskiss manufactures TOUGH GUN® TA3 through-arm welding torches for many Yaskawa® Motoman® robot models including but not limited to:

  • Current models: AR/MA1440, MH12, AR/MA2010, AR/MA3120, AR1730, MH24
  • Legacy models: MA/EA1400, MA/EA1900, MA3100

On the current robot models listed above, the spacers and through-arm cables on a Tregaskiss® gun may originate from either Tregaskiss or from Yaskawa Motoman. It is important to note that the spacers and cables from Tregaskiss have significantly different dimensions than these same items from Yaskawa Motoman. This means that they are NOT interchangeable. Ordering the wrong replacement spacer and/or cable for an existing installation will significantly impact Tool Center Point (TCP) and cable life – please see Configuration Comparison Chart below for both solid mount and clutch mount setups with a short 45-degree neck for reference.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

If you require Yaskawa Motoman components, please contact Yaskawa Motoman directly.


Otherwise, if you require Tregaskiss components, please contact us for further assistance.

For each model above, when a TOUGH GUN TA3 MIG Gun is configured through Tregaskiss, the complete torch solution is Tregaskiss branded and includes: consumables, neck, torch, cable and power pin. For AR/MA1440, MH12, AR/MA2010, AR/MA3120, AR1730, MH24 models, the system also includes a Tregaskiss-specific aluminum spacer which allows us to bury the cable termination into the torch and away from the articulation on axis 5.

When Yaskawa Motoman integrates a welding solution with Tregaskiss product, a Motoman through-arm cable replaces the Tregaskiss through-arm cable for all models listed above (consumables, neck, torch and power pin remain Tregaskiss branded). For AR/MA1440, MH12, AR/MA2010, AR/MA3120, AR1730, MH24 models, the system also includes a Motoman-specific plastic torch spacer which allows us to bury the cable termination into the torch and away from the articulation on axis 5. This Motoman spacer is shorter than the Tregaskiss spacer and as a result, the Motoman cable for this setup is also shorter than the Tregaskiss-specific setup.

A complete Tregaskiss setup consists of all Tregaskiss branded components. The torch spacer will be aluminum and approximately 4-3/8" in length. The cable will have a corrugated hose from front to back.

 

A hybrid Tregaskiss/Motoman setup consists of a Tregaskiss torch and consumables with a Motoman spacer and cable. The spacer will be approximately 2-3/8" in length. The cable will have a loose spring from front to back.

Improper Setup – Negative impact on TCP and/or cable life

Installing a Motoman cable on a system with an aluminum spacer will result in a cable that is too short. This cable will not be long enough to plug the power pin into the wire feeder.

 

Installing a Tregaskiss cable on a system with a plastic spacer will result in a cable that is too long. Although this cable can be physically installed, this setup will result in premature cable failure.
