Putting a neck on the line

Bernard Welding Equipment has introduced a new Metal Inert Gas (MIG) gun Neck Grip and Neck Coupler to improve operator comfort and access to difficult-to-reach joints. Made of a high-temperature silicone rubber tube that slides onto all Bernard Q-Gun and S-Gun necks, the new Neck Grip reduces fatigue and increases operator control for those welders who use their hand or forearm as a pivot point.

The new Neck Coupler allows welders to join two or more Q-Gun or S-Gun necks in a sequence — instead of ordering custom necks — to weld inaccessible joints. The Neck Coupler is easily installed in under three minutes and provides joint access that would otherwise be impossible with a traditional MIG gun neck. (www.bernardwelds.com)
