Semi-Automatic MIG Gun Withstands Heavy-Duty Welding, Minimizes Downtime

The Bernard T-Gun Semi-Automatic Air-Cooled MIG Gun has been designed for heavy-duty welding, features a comfortable straight handle design and can be built to order to ensure users have the features they need to weld in even the harshest and most abusive environments.
The T-Gun Semi-Automatic Air-Cooled MIG Gun from Bernard features an aircraft-grade aluminum armored neck with an insulated copper conductor tube rated over 650 amps to prevent overheating even after continuous use. 

MIG Gun Liner System Reduces Downtime, Addresses Burnbacks and Wire-Feeding Issues

In the MIG gun liner system from Tregaskiss, a spring-loaded module housed inside the power pin applies constant pressure on the liner, keeping it seated properly in the retaining head (or diffuser) at all times. The system allows for up to one inch (2.54 cm) forgiveness and it also accommodates liner movement during welding.
The Quick Load™ Liner AutoLength™ System from Tregaskiss helps reduce wire-feeding problems and also decreases burnbacks, along with premature contact tip failure and wear associated with misalignment between the liner and contact tip.
