Bernard has added a 300 amp MIG fume extraction gun to the Clean Air product family. The new gun allows users to reduce smoke at the source with an industrial-duty fume extraction gun comparable in size and weight to a regular welding gun.

In addition, Bernard has changed the finish from chrome to black on all Clean Air fume extraction gun vacuum tubes and chambers. This aesthetic change will be made on all new guns, replacement vacuum tubes and replacement chambers.

The expansion of the Clean Air fume extraction gun offering provides more choices and greater flexibility for operations seeking to establish a cleaner, more compliant work environment. Clean Air fume extraction guns are also available in 400-, 500- and 600-amp models and can be used with solid and flux-cored wire.

The guns are compatible with high performance consumables from Bernard, including Centerfire, Quik Tip and Tough Lock as well as the Universal Conventional Liner or Quick Load Liner. Users can make their selection and customize their Clean Air fume extraction gun at BernardWelds.com/ConfigureMyGun.

All Clean Air fume extraction guns have a small vacuum chamber that provides good joint access and visibility, along with a 360-degree vacuum hose swivel on the rear of the handle that improves flexibility and reduces operator wrist fatigue. The guns are ideal for large weldment and confined space welding applications.

Bandsaw with increased cutting output

The new Behringer HBE Dynamic Series bandsaws use a high torque, frequency controlled blade drive motor. The specialized gearing in the drive is engineered to produce the blade power and speed needed to achieve fast cutting and peak throughput rates. Because the drive is low horsepower and energy efficient, power consumption is reduced while energy savings and high production are realized. The new saw is designed to meet a broad range of applications in the steel trade, mechanical engineering, tool making and in high-end metalworking shops.
