Overview

These D/F Machine Specialties Water-Cooled Curved Guns are designed to be run at 100% duty cycles, upwards of 600 amps. These W/C Curved Guns are extremely heavy duty and rugged and built for production welding. If you are tired of the problems associated with Air-Cooled (throw away guns) such as Bernard, Binzel, Profax, Fronius, Miller, Lincoln, ESAB, Tweco, Tregaskiss, American Torch Tip, these are far superior welding guns, designed to last years instead of months. Unlike the other welding gun manufacturers mentioned, these D/F hand guns are built with copper, not plastic, have water cooling on the gas nozzle and tip, have a water cooled power cable, and can run any size and kind of welding wire. The NCC-16 "Mighty MIG" welding gun assemblies utilize the same forward nozzle/gas nozzle assemblies and features of the pistol grip. This allows a flexible and low inventory of replacement parts due to interchangeability of these models using .035" through 3/32" diameter wire. The trigger switch assembly is the momentary contact type. Also available is the optional button on/off switch. Both switches can be positioned where desired, at any point 360° around the standard 8" torch handle. Some like to position the switch below the handle as a normal finger trigger, and others might position the switch above the handle for use as a thumb button. These options will help provide comfort and balance, and to escape reflective heat.

Remember the great ESAB ST-16 torch (part no. 997498) welding gun that was used exclusively for gas metal arc (MIG) spot welding of aluminum and hard wires? Very similar in design to the ESAB ST-16 welding gun but with improvements and new features, and proven to be a superior replacement alternative, the D/F water-cooled handheld curved MIG push gun is a rugged, all purpose, water-cooled, manual MIG welding torch designed to operate at welding currents up to 400 amperes on a true continuous duty cycle using all types of shielding gases. Like the ESAB ST-16, the D/F Curved Gun is easily connected to the ESAB MIG-35 wire feeder. The DF curved MIG gun is also intended for use with all wire feeders which have provision for water cooling. It is designed to run wire with diameters up to 3/32". For larger wire diameters 3/32"-1/8", choose from next two sets of models below.

The D/F torch is famous for the fact, that if it is chilled properly, the welder can grab the chrome front water-cooled barrel (not the copper gas nozzle/cup) of the torch with their bare hand and it will be cold to the touch seconds after welding. With the proper chiller, this can be done even after a 4 hour arc time. Make certain the cooling water supply is at least the minimum flow rate of 1 gallon per minute (for each inner body), at 40 psi (80 psi maximum) with a 6 gallon reservoir and a recommended 30,000 BTU/hr cooling capacity. Gun ratings are affected by shielding gas used, arc time, cooling time and inlet water temperature. Water outlet temperature should not exceed 27°C (80°F). The torch’s water out & power cable is not cooled until the coolant has gone through the torch and out the water out & power cable. If water is not flowing through the D/F torch for at least 1 minute prior to striking an arc, when you apply the power and water hits the “hot” water/out & power cable, you will generate steam. Steam can damage the torches internals in seconds causing a leak. It can also blow out the torches water/out & power cable. A flow switch can be installed after the return line ensuring that coolant is present at the return line prior to striking an arc. When High-Deposition GMAW, high current density, high amperages, preheat, or extended periods of arc time are used, a refrigerated liquid chiller with a larger reservoir is required. Precise temperature control maintains the cooling at a constant 13°C (55°F) temperature, thus prolonging the life of the welding equipment and more specifically extending the service life of the gas nozzle and current tip. D/F Machine Specialties does not manufacture or sell chillers, we only recommend them. Click here to see our recommended chillers.

Each D/F Machine Specialties welding gun is fully assembled and ready to install. In order to make the installation complete, the code number, wire size, wire feeder make/model (Lincoln wire feeders, Miller wire feeders, Tweco wire feeders, ESAB wire feeders, & EURO Quick Disconnect wire feeders), and inlet (as needed) must be specified when ordering. If special welding tools or accessories other than those listed previously are required, please consult with the factory. Get the right feeder adapter connection to fit your MIG wire feeder.

Utility Station #45196

45196 Utility StationThe D/F Utility Station is required for all D/F torch installations. Typical modern torch setups utilize a unitized cable assembly with a power pin. D/F torches take an alternative approach to the setup. The torches use a separate gas hose, water-in hose, Water Out & Power Cable, and casing/conduit. When one cable goes bad it is simply replaced instead of attaching an entire new unitized cable assembly; a huge cost saver! This is also where the D/F Utility Station comes into play. The gas hose, water-in hose, and Water Out & Power Cable are interfaced with the customer's existing lines via the Utility Station. The D/F torch leads plug into the front (see right) of the Utility Station. Into the back (see below) of the Utility Station go the customer's utilities.

Comparing Push Guns, Push-Pull Guns, and Spool Guns

Push Gun Benefits
Feeding aluminum wire through a push only system is very advantageous. The D/F Water-Cooled Pistol Gun easily connects to a Millermatic 350P and XR-AlumaFeed, and is a superior alternative to the Miller XR-Pistol-Pro and XR-A, and the MK Products Prince XL® Push-Pull Pistol Grip Gun. The D/F Pistol is inexpensive unlike the push-pull MIG torches and spool guns on the market today. Push-pull torches are also very fragile, difficult to maintain, and have more parts. A push gun requires u-groove drive rolls to provide more surface contact with the wire, a nylon liner, and adequate drive-roll pressure. With the use of the D/F steel reinforced casing supporting the liner, the D/F Pistol Gun can push 3/64", 1/16", and 3/32" aluminum wire up to 15 feet. Because the D/F Pistol Gun can hook up to any manufacturer's wire feeder and power source, large spools of wire can be used reducing expenses, down time, and wear and tear on the torch by the changing of spools, as in a spool gun. A spool gun needs to have the roll changed after every pound of wire is used, compared with the 8 or 15 lb spool on a push-pull system. In tight spaces, the spool may limit access, requiring the operator to use a longer stickout. If the operator is using several pounds of aluminum per day, the few minutes need to change spools can add up. Also, the chance of burnback exists when the end of a spool is reached, so many operators stop when a few turns are left on the spool.

Spool Gun Limitations
Because a spool gun is larger than a push gun, it can sometimes be difficult to get close access to the weld. Also, a spool gun can only hold a 1 pound spool of aluminum wire electrode, so changeovers are frequent. In addition, these small spools typically are not the most economical way to purchase wire.

Push-Pull Gun Limitations
Typically, the greatest disadvantage of a push-pull system is that it requires the most number of components and is the most expensive. Push-pull guns are also very fragile and do not last as long.

Push Welding vs. Push-Pull Welding
A push gun also has advantages over a push-pull gun for many reasons. Typically, the greatest disadvantage of moving wire over long distances with a push-pull system is that it requires the most number of components and is the most expensive. It is very easy to mount a D/F Pistol Gun on a boom system to take all of the weight off of the gun. By mounting the wire feeder and power source on a 4-wheel cart, you can now travel great distances very easily. Push-pull guns are also very fragile and do not last as long (months vs. years). Push-pull guns are 2-3 times more expensive than the D/F Pistol. They only last up to 9 months on average, and you either have to replace the torch or rebuild by installing a new motor costing as much as $400-plus. Lastly but most importantly, because the D/F Pistol uses a 4" contact tip that is recessed in the water-cooling, not only is the arc stability increased, the tip life is increased 7-1, and there is built-in wire straightening. If the operator is using several pounds of aluminum per day, the few minutes need to change spools or replace motors can add up.

Pushing Aluminum Wire
Feeding aluminum wire through a push only system is very advantageous. Because push-only guns like D/F Pistol Gun can hook up to any manufacturer's wire feeder and power source, large 300 lb spools of wire can be used reducing expenses, down time, and wear and tear on the torch by the changing of spools as in a spool gun. A spool gun needs to have the roll changed after every pound of wire is used, compared to the large size spools used in a D/F Pistol Gun. Also, the chance of burn-back exists when the end of a spool is reached, so many operators stop when a few turns are left on the spool.

Trailer Manufacturing
When manufacturing high quality aluminum trailers, it is important to consider longevity and strength of the weld joints. With aluminum in particular, it is somewhat of a fine-tune process to get a weld that will penetrate correctly with slightly higher heat and slightly lower travel speed. Also, choosing the correct wire size is crucial to an optimally strong aluminum weld. Since the D/F Water-Cooled Pistol Gun can handle a wide range of wires, and can hook up to any power source and wire feeder to accept any necessary welding parameters, it is a superior choice for manual MIG aluminum welding and trailer manufacturing.

Overview

The NCC/HTC curved MIG gun assemblies utilize the same forward nozzle/gas nozzle assemblies and features of the pistol grip. This allows a flexible and low inventory of replacement parts due to interchangeability of these models using .035" through 1/8" diameter wire. The trigger switch assembly is the momentary contact type. Also available is the optional button on/off switch. Both switches are positionable where desired on the torch for comfort and balance, and to escape reflective heat.

Similar to the "Mighty MIG", these models provide options for longer 3", 4", and 5" water-cooled nozzles to meet different job requirements. Each of these lengths comes in the standard diameter, or the Series A high capacity diameter for increased gas coverage.

Remember the great ESAB ST-16 torch (part no. 997498) that was used exclusively for gas metal arc (MIG) spot welding of aluminum and hard wires? Very similar in design to the ESAB ST-16 but with improvements and new features, and proven to be a superior replacement alternative, the D/F water-cooled handheld curved MIG push gun is a rugged all purpose, water-cooled, manual MIG welding torch designed to operate at welding currents up to 600 amperes continuous duty using all types of shielding gases. This gun has been used exclusively with aluminum welding, shipbuilding and trailer manufacturing. The DF curved MIG gun is intended for use with all wire feeders which have provision for water cooling and will handle all types of welding wire from .035" diameter through 1/8" diameter flux cored wire, and 3/64" AL through 3/32" Aluminum wire.

The Model NCC-A/HTC-A semi automatic hand held guns provide water-cooled nozzles that accommodate gas nozzles 11/16" through 15/16" I.D. for hard, cored and aluminum wire applications.

Overview

This is a very special Water-Cooled Curved Welding Gun for large wire diameters, high heat, hard to feed aluminum wire, abrasive overlay cored wires, and working with extreme preheat. Similar to the torches above, including the save 3", 4" and 5" lengths in the two diameter nozzle configurations, the NCC-E/HTC-E (External Casing) curved MIG semi-automatic overlay gun assemblies use an axial alignment of the casing to reduce wire feed pressure and improve current tip life. Because of the external conduit, now, instead of bending a large wire through a small torch body you are able to feed the wire smoothly through a gradual 6 foot radius from wire feeder to the tip. The version of this gun with a 20 inch long handle, enables the welder to be 2 feet back from the upwards of 1000 degree preheat. This gun is one of the few guns that can handle the high heat and is the superior choice for laser welding. The gun assembly is available with an extended handle (20") and slide switch to help keep the welder away from the extreme conditions of preheat and high amperage required for overlay applications, steel casting repairs, surfacing and rebuilding applications, in the forging industry for the repair or reclamation of forging dies (also utilized in rams, sow blocks, die holders and die shanks when increased hardness is required), and in the steel mill industry for steel gears, arbors, shafts and couplings.

These semi automatic hand held curved torches utilize the same forward nozzle/gas nozzle assemblies and features of the pistol grip torch. This allows a flexible and low inventory of replacement parts due to interchangeability of these models using .035" through 1/8" diameter wire, and are ideal for welding with 3/64" AL and 3/32" AL wire. The trigger switch assembly is the momentary contact type. Also available is the optional button on/off switch. Both switches are positionable where desired on the torch for comfort and balance, and to escape reflective heat.

The model NCCE-A/HTCE-A provide Water-Cooled nozzles that accommodate gas nozzles 11/16" through 15/16" I.D. for hard, cored and aluminum wire applications.

The D/F torch is famous for the fact, that if it is chilled properly, the welder can grab the chrome front water-cooled barrel (not the copper gas nozzle/cup) of the torch with their bare hand and it will be cold to the touch seconds after welding. With the proper chiller, this can be done even after a 4 hour arc time. Make certain the cooling water supply is at least the minimum flow rate of 1 gallon per minute (for each inner body), at 40 psi (80 psi maximum) with a 6 gallon reservoir and a recommended 30,000 BTU/hr cooling capacity. Gun ratings are affected by shielding gas used, arc time, cooling time and inlet water temperature. Water outlet temperature should not exceed 27°C (80°F). The torch’s water out & power cable is not cooled until the coolant has gone through the torch and out the water out & power cable. If water is not flowing through the D/F torch for at least 1 minute prior to striking an arc, when you apply the power and water hits the “hot” water/out & power cable, you will generate steam.

Utility Station #45196

45196 Utility StationThe D/F Utility Station is required for all D/F torch installations. Typical modern torch setups utilize a unitized cable assembly with a power pin. D/F torches take an alternative approach to the setup. The torches use a separate gas hose, water-in hose, Water Out & Power Cable, and casing/conduit. When one cable goes bad it is simply replaced instead of attaching an entire new unitized cable assembly; a huge cost saver! This is also where the D/F Utility Station comes into play. The gas hose, water-in hose, and Water Out & Power Cable are interfaced with the customer's existing lines via the Utility Station. The D/F torch leads plug into the front (see right) of the Utility Station. Into the back (see below) of the Utility Station go the customer's utilities.
