Bernard S-Gun 250 Amp MIG Gun Eliminates Downtime and Costs Associated with Neck Replacements
Press release date: November 12, 2012
BEECHER, Ill. – To help eliminate downtime and costs associated with missing MIG gun necks – a common occurrence in shipbuilding and repair – Bernard has introduced its Bernard® S-Gun™ 250 amp MIG Gun. The new gun features a locked rotatable neck that cannot be easily removed by the welding operator, but is still easily serviceable by maintenance. By having the locked neck, companies can reduce time at shift starts looking for or replacing MIG gun necks, as well as minimize the need for additional neck purchases.
The Bernard S-Gun 250 amp MIG Gun is compatible with the Weld Cable Control (WCC) Systems from Miller Electric Mfg. Co. Together the two help optimize weld quality while also increasing productivity.
The gun includes a steel monocoil power cable designed with lightweight steel coils that offer an exceptional conduit for shielding gas flow and wire feeding. The coil can accommodate commonly used wire sizes — .045- to 1/16 inch. The Bernard S-Gun 250 amp MIG Gun also features a handle constructed of a high-impact, glass-reinforced composite that can withstand rough workplace conditions, and is ergonomically designed to offer welding operators better comfort and control — even after extended use.
The Bernard S-Gun 250 amp MIG Gun is compatible with Quik Tip™ Series Consumables, which provide excellent arc starting capabilities, reduce spatter and provide more consistent welds than many competitive consumables. The Quik Tip Series Consumables feature a threaded taper lock that increases contact tip life by providing excellent heat transfer and electrical conductivity, along with gas diffusers that have positive stops. These stops secure Quik Tip nozzles in a fixed position for superior repeatability and consistent, quality welds.
