New Tregaskiss® BA1 Cobot Air-Cooled MIG Gun Increases Uptime and Throughput

POSTED 03/31/2021

WINDSOR, Ontario. — Tregaskiss has incorporated its well-known and dependable performance into the new BA1 cobot air-cooled MIG gun. The gun’s simple and durable design helps operators stay focused on welding, not troubleshooting, to help increase uptime and throughput. The BA1 cobot MIG gun also uses long-lasting AccuLock™ R consumables — a combination that minimizes downtime, improves weld quality and further drives productivity. 

Users can depend on the BA1 cobot MIG gun for its durability in manufacturing environments. The gun features metal-to-metal keyed connections that hold it in place in the mounting arm and keep the strong, aluminum-armored neck firmly in place in the gun body. The BA1 cobot MIG gun has a user-friendly, easy-to-grip mounting arm and free-drive options to simplify and speed programming. It offers 385 amps of power at a 100% duty cycle using mixed gases. 

Simplified installation
Tregaskiss delivers the BA1 cobot MIG gun fully assembled, including AccuLock consumables. This, along with minimal fasteners and a precision-machined keyway mounting system, makes installation of the gun and mounting arm quick, easy and accurate. Adding to the ease of installation, Tregaskiss has made power pins available for an assortment of wire feeders and offers insulating discs that are designed to match various brands of cobots.  

Less frequent, easier maintenance 
The BA1 cobot MIG gun uses QUICK LOAD® liners that maintenance personnel or welders can replace from the front of the gun without disturbing it, the wire or the feeder connection, for faster changeover. AccuLock contact tips are also fast and easy to install. 

High quality and versatility
AccuLock contact tips prevent the cross-threading that can lead to weld-quality problems. The tip’s long tail concentrically aligns within the diffuser before coarse threads engage, making the contact tips virtually impossible to cross-thread.

The consumables are part of a Common Consumables Platform™ and are also compatible with Bernard® semi-automatic MIG guns and Tregaskiss fixed automatic and robotic MIG guns. The platform minimizes inventory and simplifies its management, so more time is spent on welding.
