Bernard Welds Centerfire Components
March 4, 2008

Designed to reduce operator downtime and improve weld quality for companies that weld at high amperages or that frequently change between MIG welding and self-shielded flux-cored welding, Bernard offers its Heavy-Duty and Gasless Centerfire components. The Heavy-Duty Centerfire nozzles, designed for shipbuilding, trailer fabrication and other heavy equipment manufacturing operations, feature thicker walls, a new heat-resistant insulating material and a removable nozzle cone. Heavy-Duty nozzles are well-suited to applications using mixed gases, spray transfer processes or thick aluminum welding and other uses that increase the heat transferred to the consumables. The removable nozzle cone lowers downtime and consumables cost by allowing operators to replace only the cone, the most frequently damaged part of the nozzle, without having to remove and replace the entire nozzle. The removable cone also makes cleaning easier by allowing greater access to the nozzle body for spatter removal.
