Air-cooled MIG Guns
When deciding to add air-cooled MIG welding torches to your operation, you will want to consider the needs of your facility. If you are welding daily for only a short period of time, air-cooled MIG guns would adequately cover your operation. This type of gun is optimal for quick, low-amperage MIG welding applications.
Air-cooled MIG guns are most effectively used in smaller, less-demanding operations where they are being used at a lower rate. This is due to the design and usability of the torch. Air-cooled MIG welding guns cannot withstand heat for very long, therefore once the torch reaches a certain point it's functionality will significantly decrease. They rely heavily on the transfer of heat from the contact tip, through the handle, and into the power cable before radiating into the air.
ABICOR BINZEL offers three air-cooled MIG welding torches. Each option having a slightly different look and feel depending on the style of neck, trigger design, and weight of the gun.
There is no standard design for air-cooled MIG welding torches. Each manufacturer has an idea of what the welder is looking for and uses that as their guiding principles. ABICOR BINZEL has designed our three welding guns with the welder's comfort in mind. From the sleek look to the lightweight feel, our guns are built to make your job easier. Our newest designs also include rotating necks, which allow the welder to move around the weld in whatever fashion they feel is best. The combination of these features will help you optimize your productivity significantly.
The neck of a MIG torch is one of the most impactful features. The neck controls your mobility, dictates every angle you attempt, and ultimately influences your decision-making in how you will go about your weld. The ABIMIG AT allows for interchangeable, rotating necks - giving this torch an edge as the welder's choice for getting the job done effectively.
Nozzles and tips can withstand heat, but depending on the time between welds and the amount of cooldown allowed, they can wear due to heat exposure. ABICOR BINZEL uses a two-piece nozzle design for most air-cooled models, which can lessen part inventory and extends the usage of the nozzle. This design allows for continued use, but as you continue to use your MIG torch you will need to verify the proper maintenance is being done.
Air-cooled MIG welding torches are often described as being easy, quick, and low-maintenance. This type of MIG gun is essentially plug and go, meaning it requires little to no outside resources or additional systems to get the job done. You can move freely around the plant without the need for bulky equipment to follow.
The air-cooled MIG torch is a great option for those who want to get in and out quickly, but efficiently. These guns are built to be comfortable and adaptable to not get in the way of the welder's work. The weight and flexibile design allow for more applications than a water-cooled torch, making this gun an easy choice for facilities that are looking to complete more complex projects.
