Tregaskiss introduces analog and Ethernet reamers
- September 14, 2021
Tregaskiss has introduced the TOUGH GUN TT4A (analog) and TT4E (Ethernet) reamers.
Tregaskiss says the new reamers maximize uptime and weld quality by powering through spatter, improving gas flow and reducing porosity so more time can be spent welding.
The reamers are based on a 0.95HP motor with 236 pounds of lifting force at 95 psi. The cutter blades have been engineered from harder, stronger material and 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 motor lasts up to 18M cycles at 80+ psi. A standard motor lubricator extends the life of the motor and is highly recommended for use in damp and moisture rich environments.
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. This minimizes the risk of running out and helps prevent poor weld quality from lack of shielding gas due to spatter build up. The reservoir includes a tethered cap and easy-clean filter to protect against anti-spatter contamination, which can also lead to weld quality issues. It mounts directly to the reamer frame to increase durability. The reservoir is compatible with the TOUGH GARD anti-spatter multi-feed system to provide a continuous supply of anti-spatter solution to up to 10 reamers from a 5-gallon pail or 55-gallon drum.
