Tregaskiss (www.tregaskiss.com) unveiled its latest TOUGH GARD™ Spatter Cleaner that helps extend the life of robotic MIG consumables and minimizes spatter build-up. This powerful, all-in-one spatter cleaning station operates on as little as 60 psi, it is wired to easily integrate with existing programmable logic controller (“PLC”) or robotic automation controls that runs on 24 V DC. It is designed to efficaciously remove spatter build-up from MIG welding consumables. The TOUGH GARD Spatter Cleaner, with all of the above features, lessens the MIG consumable changeover’s frequency, making a greater arc-on time with lower overall operating and consumable costs.
The new TOUGH GARD™ Spatter Cleaner greatly fits for the user’s welding cell with its low-cost features. It quickly removes all spatter build-up from the MIG welding consumables, and features factory-installed wire sprayer and cutter.
The Tregaskiss TOUGH GARD Spatter Cleaner has a factory-installed wire cutter and sprayer, which minimizes cost and the need for separate peripherals, as well as maximizing its space within the robotic weld cell (“footprint: L = 9.75 x W = 9.75 x H = 17.5 in.”). The wire cutter redresses the welding wire to a consistent and clean length ensuring accurate arc starting, while the wire sprayer applies a layer of TOUGH GARD Anti-Spatter Liquid for front-end consumables protection. When it is exposed to heat, its anti-spatter liquid produces a protective barrier, which resists spatter accumulation, extending their life and keeping the consumables clean.
“We designed the TOUGH GARD Spatter Cleaner to be an all-in-one cleaning solution-one that minimizes the need and cost for purchasing a separate wire cutter and/or anti-spatter sprayer,” said Rob Ryan, product manager of automation group, Tregaskiss. “It’s a great fit for customers’ welding cells and their budgets.”
