Waste Not, Want Not

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. 

Small Issue, Big Impact

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.

Insider Q&A: Questions Answered About Water-Cooled Robotic MIG Guns

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.

Trends in Robotic Welding Guns

Robotic MIG guns may seem like a small part of the whole automated system, but the evolution of their design and functionality is having a significant impact on the cost, productivity and quality of an application.

Which is the Right MIG Gun?

Here are some insightful tips on how to weigh out the pros and cons when selecting between air- or water-cooled guns and light- or heavy-duty models.
