To minimize downtime and cost for MIG gun liner replacement, Tregaskiss offers Quick Load liners for its semi-automatic and robotic MIG guns. These liners require less than half the time and effort for replacement when compared with conventional MIG gun liners, and allow for more regular and easier routine maintenance.
The Quick Load liner consists of a two-piece system with a retainer that installs in the power pin on the first use. The liner portion of the Quick Load liner then feeds through the front end of the gooseneck while the MIG gun remains attached to the wire feeder. There is no need to cut the wire in the MIG gun. The welding operator simply removes the front-end consumables (nozzle, retaining head, and contact tips) and slides the liner over the wire, using it as a guide.
On robotic applications, the Quick Load liner minimizes downtime by eliminating the trouble of maneuvering around tooling or transferring systems to remove the MIG gun from the wire feeder. It also allows for liner changeover from a safe-zone outside the work cell during routine pauses in production. Quick Load liners are particularly beneficial when coupled with Tregaskiss' Tough Gun ThruArm Series robotic MIG guns, as the wire feeders in through-arm systems are closely positioned next to the robot's casting and can be cumbersome to move during conventional liner changeover.
Tregaskiss offers Quick Load liners in lengths up to 25 feet for semi-automatic MIG guns and up to 15 feet long for robotic applications. The liners, made of high carbon steel, accommodate wire diameters ranging from .035“ to 1/16“.
