Newly Designed Cutter Blades Offer Improved Performance at a Competitive Price

Feature a twin flute design that improves cutting and cleaning performance during the robotic MIG gun nozzle cleaning process

WINDSOR, Ontario. July 30, 2013 - Tregaskiss has announced improvements to its cutter blades for use with its TOUGH GUN™ TT3 Reamer and TOUGH GARD™ Spatter Cleaner. The newly designed cutter blades feature a twin flute design that improves cutting and cleaning performance during the robotic MIG gun nozzle cleaning process, helping ensure users gain better performance and a longer life from their consumables - all for a competitive new price.


The new cutter blades are engineered from a durable material that makes them more resistant to breaking, chipping or cracking. The material also provides a sharper cutting edge that improves cleaning and cutting accuracy.

The new cutter blades are designed to fit perfectly with the company's TOUGH LOCK™ Consumables. TOUGH LOCK Consumables feature nozzles, contact tips and retaining heads with Dual Taper Technology. The consumables feature locking features that guarantee positive electrical conductivity for excellent arc performance and minimize overheating to help extend consumables life.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
