Abicor Binzel has launched its FreedomDrive push-pull welding gun system.
The push-pull system is designed to free welders of the typical heavy, bulky handheld push-pull gun; giving the welder a more comfortable, reliable, and efficient way to weld in push-pull applications.
The system uses an assist drive approximately six feet downstream of the standard, lightweight gun handle. The assist drive is powered directly from select push-pull power sources, or by a separate Abicor Binzel power control box.
The assist motor will feed slightly faster than the main wire feeder, which places tension on the weld wire through the rear cable assembly. This allows the wire to be fed over longer distances than a typical push-pull gun.
The AT/WT guns that come with the FreedomDrive use the same handle and consumables as ABIMIG AT/WT guns. This gives the welder a variety of neck length and angle options, longer consumable life, and a lightweight gun designed with ergonomics as a top priority.
Flexibility is the highlight of the FreedomDrive, with access to parts is improved by relocating the bulky drive components down the cable instead of in the handle. The system comes in 20-foot and 30-foot length options, giving you the freedom to move around as needed.
