Nozzle Detection

Power Through Spatter with the NEW TOUGH GUN TT4A and TT4E Reamer Nozzle Cleaning Stations

A recommended accessory for the TOUGH GUN® TT4A and TT4E reamer, nozzle detect alerts maintenance personnel when the nozzle on the robotic MIG gun is no longer present, before a weld is attempted. This reduces rework and scrap costs caused by welding without a nozzle.

This detection system uses a proximity sensor, which is mounted on the side of the reamer and can be used independently of the ream cycle. The robot positions the front end of the robotic MIG gun close to the sensor to detect the presence of the nozzle. If the nozzle is present, a signal is then sent back to the robot controller or PLC and welding is uninterrupted.

Nozzle detect is an available option when configuring your TOUGH GUN TT4A or TT4E reamer.
