January 26, 2021

          PRODUCT UPDATE – Firmware and Software Update for the TOUGH GUN TT3E Reamer

          PRODUCT UPDATE —
          Firmware and Software Update for the TOUGH GUN TT3E Reamer

          December 2, 2019

          Effective November 15, 2019, the TOUGH GUN® TT3E (Ethernet) reamer is now running updated firmware and software. The ARGEE software has been updated from version 4.0 to 4.1, and the firmware from version 3.5 to 3.6.

          What’s New?

          • Firmware: Allows the Turck ARGEE 4.1 software to be loaded through the Turck Service IP Tool.
          • Software: Spray time was reduced from 250 milliseconds to 1 millisecond, allowing full control over spray time via the robot controller rather than the reamer.

          Compatibility

          • ARGEE 4.1 software can run on firmware 3.5, however, ARGEE 4.0 cannot operate on firmware 3.6.
          • The HMI that is currently available for download on the Tregaskiss.com website is compatible with ARGEE 4.1 only. If you are running ARGEE 4.0, please download the compatible HMI from the Resources tab on the TOUGH GUN TT3E Reamer webpage.

          Downloads

          • The new ARGEE 4.1 software package can be downloaded from the Software tab on the TOUGH GUN TT3E reamer webpage.
          • The new firmware version 3.6 cannot be downloaded from the Tregaskiss.com website. Please contact Tregaskiss Technical Support to request this file.

            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

                              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.

                              Key features of Bernard AccuLock S Consumables
