QUICK LOAD Liners Standard on TOUGH GUN Robotic Air-Cooled MIG Guns

September 1, 2010

Tregaskiss announced that as of September 1, 2010, its QUICK LOAD™ Liners are now standard — free of charge — on all TOUGH GUN™ Robotic Air-Cooled MIG Guns, including the TOUGH GUN ThruArm™ Series and TOUGH GUN G2 Series. QUICK LOAD Liners consist of a front-loading two-piece system that requires less than half the time and effort for replacement compared to conventional robotic MIG gun liners.

To replace a QUICK LOAD Liner, the welding operator needs only to remove the front-end consumables (nozzle, retaining head and contact tip), feed the liner through the front of the robotic MIG gun and over the wire, using it as a guide. There is no need to cut the wire and the robotic MIG gun can remain in position during replacement, which minimizes downtime related to maneuveringSave time and money with innovative front-loading QUICK LOAD Liners from Tregaskiss around tooling or transferring systems. It also allows for liner changeover from a safe-zone outside the work cell during routine pauses in production.

Tregaskiss offers the QUICK LOAD Liners in five different sizes to accommodate 0.030", 0.035" to 0.045", 0.045" to 1/16", 1/16" to 5/64" and 0.078" to 3/32" wire diameters. These liner are compatible with Tregaskiss TOUGH GUN Robotic and Automatic MIG Guns and Bernard™ T-Gun™ Semi-Automatic MIG Guns (formerly Tregaskiss TOUGH GUN Semi-Automatic MIG Guns), and allow users of multiple styles of guns to simplify and reduce their overall inventory of welding consumables.
