New MIG-to-Self-Shielded Flux Cored Centerfire(TM) Conversion Parts Decrease Downtime, Improve Weld Visibility



o Allows MIG-to-flux cored conversion without gun changeover

o Improves joint visibility and accessibility

BEECHER, Ill. - To improve joint visibility and accessibility for companies that regularly switch between MIG and self-shielded flux cored welding with the same power source, Bernard offers conversion parts that allow a Q-Gun(TM) with Centerfire(TM) consumables to be easily converted to accommodate either process.

Centerfire conversion parts allow the welding operator to replace the MIG nozzle, which directs the shielding gas, with a contact tip holder and insulator, since shielding gas is not needed for self-shielded flux cored welding.

Removal of the MIG nozzle increases weld joint visibility and accessibility, allowing the welding operator to better control the arc and weld pool.

Centerfire self-shielded flux-cored conversion parts can also decrease a company's equipment cost and inventory footprint by eliminating the need to purchase and stock separate guns for MIG and self-shielded flux cored welding.

Bernard also offers Centerfire conversion parts that allow Centerfire consumables to be used with all major MIG gun brands, further reducing the need to buy and carry multiple types of consumables for different MIG guns.
