Gun overheating can be a symptom of numerous problems, and it can result in catastrophic failure if ignored. Here are some common signs and causes of MIG gun overheating to be aware of that can help you prevent or quickly remedy the problem.
The choice between using a through-arm MIG gun or a conventional gun is sometimes an afterthought on these systems, but there are applications where a conventional gun works better and can significantly impact efficiency, throughput and quality of the finished weld. Knowing how to choose the best option for the job up front is key.
Through-arm robotic MIG guns don’t require a mounting arm like conventional robotic MIG guns do. They provide a smaller work envelope that is ideal for working in tight spaces. Here are the top factors in selecting, installing and maintaining a through-arm robotic MIG gun.
Planned downtime for preventive maintenance in the welding operation is not time wasted. Here are some crucial maintenance tips that help optimize MIG gun performance, keep production flowing smoothly and avoid unplanned downtime.
Though proper storage of MIG guns and consumables might seem like a small issue, especially in a large shop, it can greatly affect your costs, productivity and weld quality. Here’s why.
Using either air or water to keep a robotic MIG gun cool is critical because it protects the components from damage due to radiant heat from the arc and resistive heat from the electrical components in the welding circuit. These insights will help you determine if a water-cooled gun is the best fit for your application.
