Bernard and Tregaskiss to Showcase Products at FABTECH 2015 in Chicago

BEECHER, Ill./WINDSOR, Ontario. – Bernard and Tregaskiss have announced plans to attend FABTECH 2015 at McCormick Place in Chicago, November 9 to 12. To help companies improve productivity and quality, Bernard will showcase the latest in its semi-automatic MIG guns, fume extraction guns and consumables. Tregaskiss will feature its robotic MIG guns, peripherals and consumables. Both will share booth N14037 with Miller Electric Mfg. Co. and will feature select products on Miller power sources and robotic welding equipment for static and live demonstrations.

Products to be on display from Bernard include:

• Bernard BTB MIG Guns: This rugged and flexible product line allows users to build their ultimate MIG gun by selecting their desired amperage, handle, neck, power cable and more through a convenient online configurator. It builds on the best features from the former Bernard Q-Gun™, S-Gun™ and T-Gun™ MIG Gun lines, and has been designed to provide industrial-grade performance and reliability.

• Bernard Clean Air™ Fume Extraction Gun: Designed to reduce welding fume and smoke, this durable gun is comparable in handle size and weight to a standard Bernard welding gun, making it more comfortable for welding operators to maneuver. The gun is an ideal option for helping create a clean, compliant and productive work environment when welding on medium- to heavy-duty solid or flux-cored wire applications.

Tregaskiss will feature products at the show including:

• TOUGH GUN™ CA3 Robotic Air-Cooled MIG Guns: Featuring a replaceable unicable that offers extended service life to reduce downtime and costs, this gun is a replacement for the TOUGH GUN G1 Series MIG Gun that maintains TCP with minimal or no robotic programming touch ups. The gun has been engineered for precision, durability, and easy maintenance, and also features an improved neck clamp that resists damage due to accidental over-torque.

• TOUGH GUN TA3 Robotic Air-Cooled MIG Guns: A direct replacement for the TOUGH GUN ThruArm™ G1 Series MIG Guns, these guns feature a re-engineered neck clamp to improve durability and consistency of clamping force on through-arm robotic systems. It is also available with additional standard neck options and includes a Low-Stress Robotic (LSR) Unicable that provides a rotating power connection to protect against damage from routine torsion.
