WINDSOR — Tregaskiss has introduced its new TOUGH GUN TT4A (analog) and TT4E (ethernet) reamers to try and maximize uptime and weld quality in robotic welding operations. These nozzle cleaning stations provide cleaning power through spatter, improving gas flow and reducing porosity so more time can be spent welding.

Both reamers offer a .95HP motor and 236 pounds of lifting force at 95 psi. Engineered from stronger material, the cutter blades are more resistant to breaking, chipping or cracking. Adding to the reamers’ performance are several features designed to keep robotic welding operations running for extended periods of time. These include durable valves and cylinders rated for 10M+ cycles and a wire cutter that can run 1M+ cycles without requiring maintenance. The reamers also feature a powerful motor that lasts up to 18M cycles at 80+ psi. A standard motor lubricator supports that performance by extending the life of the motor; it is highly recommended for use in damp and moisture rich environments.

Tregaskiss has integrated several new standard features into the TOUGH GUN TT4A and TT4E reamers to try and reduce downtime, safety incidents and costly weld defects associated with the use of anti-spatter liquid.

An anti-spatter reservoir with 20-ounce capacity reduces the need for frequent refills to improve productivity, while a low fluid level indicator sends an alert to the PLC/robot when anti-spatter solution is low.

Also standard is a spray containment unit that captures anti-spatter overspray in an enclosed basin, lessening the potential for slip and trip accidents.

The TOUGH GUN TT4A and TT4E reamers both feature a four-sided v-block that eliminates the need to purchase new v-blocks when changing nozzle styles, while the TT4E model with ethernet provides greater control and flexibility for remote operation.

Tregaskiss offers options for the reamers to further enhance their versality, including a wire cutter that removes the ball at the end of the welding wire for smoother starts and consistent stickout, along with a reamer stand.
