St. Louis, MO (February 12, 2007) - Tweco, the leading innovator in MIG gun technologies, has taken a familiar product - the magnetic ground clamp - and incorporated features that matter most to welders.
Available at an everyday lower price, the new clamp design offers a universal style suitable for pipe and plate, whereas previous designs were either for plate or pipe.
The new design incorporates a V-channel which accommodates an attachment to pipe and plate in one magnet. Improvements in design, configuration and materials deliver lighter weight, greater clamping, less cost and more durability.
The Tweco brand includes an extensive array of products from basic manual welding products and accessories, MIG guns, consumables, and a complete selection of products for precision robotic welding applications.
