BEECHER, Ill., May 22, 2008”For increased jobsite versatility, Bernard Welding Equipment™s new Dura-Flux self-shielded flux-cored welding gun can now be configured with direct plugs for wire feeders outfitted with Tweco® 4 and Euro® gun connections.
Direct plug replacement kits make Dura-Flux direct plugs easily interchangeable, allowing companies with several brands of feeders to move the Dura-Flux from one brand of feeder to another simply by switching the direct plug and trigger cord adapter.
The new Tweco 4 and Euro direct plugs were developed in response to increased demand for the Dura-Flux gun from welders using wire feeders with these types of gun connections. In addition to the Tweco 4 and Euro direct plugs, the Dura-Flux can also be configured with Miller® and Lincoln® direct plugs.
Designed to withstand the oftentimes brutal environments of construction, shipbuilding, heavy manufacturing and rental applications, the Dura-Flux gun features a non-metallic trigger that reduces heat absorption during high-amperage self-shielded flux-cored welding, a small trigger guard that increases the gun™s maneuverability in confined areas and a sealed microswitch that keeps out dust, dirt and other contaminants.
The Dura-Flux is rated to 350 amps at 60 percent duty cycle and can handle higher current loads at reduced duty cycles. It accepts flux-cored wire up to 3/32-in. and is equipped with a heavy-duty monocoil power cable and Bernard™s Centerfire contact tips, which last up to three times longer than other brands.
For a limited time, the Dura-Flux will be packaged at no additional charge with Miller SuitCase 12RC and SuitCase X-TREME 12VS wire feeders.
