Bernard Updates its Q-Gun with Durable Polished Aluminum Neck Armor

BEECHER, Ill. December 5, 2006-Bernard® has announced that its line of Q-Gun MIG guns will now feature polished aluminum neck armor. This aluminum armor is 35% thicker than the previously used brass armor for increased durability with no weight penalty. Aluminum armored necks are compatible with all 150- through 600-amp Bernard Q-Guns. The upgrade does not affect current pricing or part numbers.

Evolutionary Design
Bernard offers its Q-Gun in multiple custom configuration options to help optimize end-users' hand held welding productivity. In addition to the new aluminum neck armor, Bernard offers several features to increase the Q-Gun's durability and performance. These features and options include:

o A durable strain relief that helps extend product life.
o An upgraded back end assembly, which allows for easier changeover of direct plugs and for the use of trigger cable adapters or "pigtails".
o Trigger and switch options that allow welding operators to choose between locking trigger, dual pull trigger, dual schedule switch and trigger extension.
o Five unique gun handles to suit any hand-held, air-cooled industrial welding application, along with the option for a fixed or rotating neck.
