Tregaskiss now offers a QUICK LOAD™ gooseneck system for its curved-handle TOUGH GUN™ GMAW guns. The system allows welding operators to change gooseneck combinations quickly, minimizing downtime and providing the exact angle for specific welding applications, states the manufacturer. The system accommodates a variety of gooseneck lengths and styles.
A quick-release feature requires only the opening and closing of a latch to switch out different gooseneck styles. It also allows the gooseneck to be rotated 360 degrees to reach awkward joints or weld in confined areas. No tools are required.
The system is combined with the company's QUICK LOAD liner system, which allows a new liner to be installed from the front end of the GMAW gun. Additionally, the company has integrated a sectional liner system into the GMAW guns, allowing the gooseneck liner and consumables to remain in place during changeover.
The system, which operates on a common consumable platform, is compatible with the TOUGH LOCK™ contact system.
