Bernard has introduced its new AccuLock™ S Consumable system, offering advanced design features to maximise productivity and weld quality.
Bernard has added advanced design features that ensure higher productivity and optimised wire feeding while also simplifying installation and maintenance. The system includes a contact tip, nozzle, gas diffuser, liner, and power pin and power pin cap.
“AccuLock S Consumables represent a revolutionary improvement for users of industrial MIG guns,” said Linda Ray, Vice-President and General Manager.
“These consumables work together, as a complete system, improving performance and minimising – if not eliminating – the most common gun maintenance issues,” Ray continued.
The AccuLock S Consumables are designed to solve issues associated with poor wire feeding in semi-automatic MIG welding, such a bird-nesting, burnback and erratic arc.
The system locks in place and concentrically aligns the liner with the power pin and contact tip for a flawless wire feeding path with no gaps or misalignments. Liner measuring is not required during installation or replacement. Welders simply cut the liner flush with the back of the power pin for perfect liner trimming.
The AccuLock S Consumables are designed to reduce heat build-up for long product life. 60% of the contact tip is buried in the gas diffuser to protect it from heat damage, while shielding gas helps cool the contact tip tail.
AccuLock R Consumables for robotic welding applications will be released under the Tregakiss®brand name later in 2019.
