Bernard Welding Equipment has announced improvements to its Dura-Flux self-shielded flux-cored welding gun. A variety of trigger guards, cable lengths, neck styles, and direct plugs allow users to customize the gun for their applications.
The company now offers six different cable lengths ( 8 ft. – 25 ft.) and the choice between a small trigger guard and a large heat shield. The small trigger guard provides increased maneuverability and access to tight weld joints, whereas the large heat shield increases operator comfort by blocking radiant heat from the welding arc.
The company also offers an optional heavy-duty contact tip insulator that is included along with the standard insulator on all new gun purchases. The heavy-duty insulator has a thicker wall above the base of the tip and is longer than the standard insulator, which provides increased heat resistance and allows a shorter contact tip stickout to prevent arc-out against the side walls of deep joints.
The gun has direct plugs that accommodate Miller, Lincoln, Euro, and Tweco 4 wire feeders.
