Bernard announced that its AccuLock S consumables system now includes Lincoln, Tweco #4, and Tweco #5 power pins. These are in addition to the power pins for Miller equipment previously available.
All power pins are configurable options for the company’s BTB semi-automatic air-cooled MIG guns using the online configurator.
The AccuLock S consumable system addresses errors in liner trimming by locking and concentrically aligning the liner between the contact tip and power pin – no fasteners required. This system provides a wire feeding path to minimize downtime associated with issues like burnbacks and birdnesting. Installing and replacing the liner is a process that requires no measuring. Users simply load the liner and trim it flush with the power pin.
Contact tips in the AccuLock S consumables system last two to three times longer due to optimized wire feeding, the company says. The contact tips also simplify inventory as part of a common consumable platform; they share the same contact tip with Tregaskiss AccuLock R consumables.
The AccuLock S consumables system requires all AccuLock components: contact tip, diffuser, nozzle, liner, neck insulator, power pin, and power pin cap.
