Bernard has announced the availability of Best of the Best (BTB) Platform GMAW guns. Users build the semiautomatic, air-cooled GMAW guns by choosing from an expanded list of features from the legacy Bernard Q-Gun™, S-Gun™, and T-Gun™ GMAW gun lines. The company has consolidated the top features from each gun line into a single GMAW gun offering and a single online configurator.
The new guns range from 200 to 600 amps, with cable length options between 8 and 25 ft. Configured guns are available for wire sizes from 0.023 to 0.125 in. Three consumable series are available: Centerfire™, TOUGH LOCK™, and Quik Tip™. Users can pair their consumable choice with any fixed or rotatable neck on one of the six front handle sizes and styles offered, including straight or curved models.
Users also can select new universal power pins to adapt to most major brands of wire feeders; industrial-grade cable or steel monocoil cables; neck angles and lengths in both fixed and rotatable styles; and trigger options including locking, dual pull, dual schedule switch, and locking dual schedule switch.
