AccuLock S Click image to enlargeWelding products supplier Bernard’s AccuLock S Series consumables include additional diffuser and nozzle types and sizes, as well as new contact tip options.

Large AccuLock S consumables now feature a new slip-on diffuser, along with a copper 3/8-inch bore tapered nozzle.

The company has also added two new diffusers for easy installation, including thread-on and slip-on versions — plus compatible brass and copper nozzles with 5/8 and 1/2-inch bores and brass nozzles with 3/8-inch bores. A variety of tip recesses are available.

The same nozzle can be installed onto either a thread-on or slip-on diffuser of either size.

New tapered ‘TT’ Series contact tips (0.350-inch O.D.) accommodate wire diameters ranging from 0.023 to 1/16 inch and are compatible with both small and large diffusers and nozzles. They pair with tapered profile nozzles to provide the same tip recess and better weld joint access. Their coarse threads easily mate with the gas diffuser to reduce the risk of cross-threading.

The system concentrically aligns the liner with the power pin and contact tip, locking it in place for a flawless wire feeding path. Welders don’t need to measure the liner during installation or replacement — they simply cut the liner flush with the back of the power pin.
