Bernard's Dura-Flux™ is the company's first self-shielded, flux-cored welding gun.
The gun features a nonmetallic trigger that the company says absorbs less heat than metal triggers and is designed to increase operator comfort. The trigger is also made with a sealed microswitch to keep dust and dirt out and to provide a long service life. The smaller trigger guard increases maneuverability.
Rated to 350 amps at 100 percent duty cycle, the gun can handle higher current loads at reduced duty cycles. It accepts flux-cored wire up to 3/32 in. and has a heavy-duty monocoil power cable and the company's Centerfire™ contact tips.
The gun also features interchangeable power pins and trigger leads for compatibility with Miller and Lincoln products, along with power pin liners that can be changed without tools to simplify maintenance.
The standard gun is 15 ft. with a 6-in., 60-degree neck. Various jacketed and armored Dura-Flux necks are available. For welders who prefer a nonstandard gun, the company will replace a standard gun with one that better fits the welder's application, free of charge and with no exchange necessary.
