MK Products has introduced a flexible barrel that bends from 180 degrees to beyond 90 degrees depending on the application. The Flex Barrel offers the ability to weld in difficult areas found in aluminum welding. It also can be used for hard-wire applications.
The product is designed to fit with the air-cooled versions of the companys Prince® XL, Prince XL Spool, Python®, and Python LX guns. It also can use the same cups and tips from the CobraMAX™ and Cobra® MX MAX cup models, in addition to spring-loaded tips.
Available in 12-, 24-, and 36-in. lengths, the flexible barrel comes standard with a 0.375-in.-OD by 0.06-in.-ID by 1-in.-long tip and a #8 gas cup for improved reach. Duty cycle is 200 amps at 60 percent duty cycle.
