      PRODUCT UPDATE – Firmware and Software Update for the TOUGH GUN TT3E Reamer

      PRODUCT UPDATE —
      Firmware and Software Update for the TOUGH GUN TT3E Reamer

      December 2, 2019

      Effective November 15, 2019, the TOUGH GUN® TT3E (Ethernet) reamer is now running updated firmware and software. The ARGEE software has been updated from version 4.0 to 4.1, and the firmware from version 3.5 to 3.6.

      What’s New?

      • Firmware: Allows the Turck ARGEE 4.1 software to be loaded through the Turck Service IP Tool.
      • Software: Spray time was reduced from 250 milliseconds to 1 millisecond, allowing full control over spray time via the robot controller rather than the reamer.

      Compatibility

      • ARGEE 4.1 software can run on firmware 3.5, however, ARGEE 4.0 cannot operate on firmware 3.6.
      • The HMI that is currently available for download on the Tregaskiss.com website is compatible with ARGEE 4.1 only. If you are running ARGEE 4.0, please download the compatible HMI from the Resources tab on the TOUGH GUN TT3E Reamer webpage.

      Downloads

      • The new ARGEE 4.1 software package can be downloaded from the Software tab on the TOUGH GUN TT3E reamer webpage.
      • The new firmware version 3.6 cannot be downloaded from the Tregaskiss.com website. Please contact Tregaskiss Technical Support to request this file.

                    • 58SA004

                    Our legacy TOUGH GUN ThruArm G1 series was replaced by our TOUGH GUN TA3 series in 2014, but although A58G1S connector housing is the replacement for 508-200ABB connector housing, this unit will change tool center point (TCP) by approximately 1.428″.

                    For those customers using a 508-200ABB with a 405-22QC neck, we will be able to develop a special 22-degree neck for use with the A58G1S module to match their existing TCP. However, due to a length restriction in manufacturing, we will not be able to match TCP for those customers using a 508-200ABB with a 405-45QC neck. In this case, reprogramming will be necessary when switching to an A58G1S.

                    Additionally, when transitioning from the 508-200ABB to the A58G1S, the 58SA004 LSR Unicable will need to be replaced with the 58SA024 LSR Unicable, as the cable to torch connection is also different.

                              Tregaskiss TOUGH GUN TA3 Torch Solutions for Yaskawa Motoman Robots

                              December 18, 2019

                              Overview

                              Tregaskiss manufactures TOUGH GUN® TA3 through-arm welding torches for many Yaskawa® Motoman® robot models including but not limited to:

                              • Current models: AR/MA1440, MH12, AR/MA2010, AR/MA3120, AR1730, MH24
                              • Legacy models: MA/EA1400, MA/EA1900, MA3100

                              On the current robot models listed above, the spacers and through-arm cables on a Tregaskiss® gun may originate from either Tregaskiss or from Yaskawa Motoman. It is important to note that the spacers and cables from Tregaskiss have significantly different dimensions than these same items from Yaskawa Motoman. This means that they are NOT interchangeable. Ordering the wrong replacement spacer and/or cable for an existing installation will significantly impact Tool Center Point (TCP) and cable life – please see Configuration Comparison Chart below for both solid mount and clutch mount setups with a short 45-degree neck for reference.

                              Details

                              For each model above, when a TOUGH GUN TA3 MIG gun is configured through Tregaskiss, the complete torch solution is Tregaskiss branded and includes: consumables, neck, torch, cable and power pin. For AR/MA1440, MH12, AR/MA2010, AR/MA3120, AR1730, MH24 models, the system also includes a Tregaskiss-specific aluminum spacer which allows us to bury the cable termination into the torch and away from the articulation on axis 5.

                              When Yaskawa Motoman integrates a welding solution with Tregaskiss product, a Motoman through-arm cable replaces the Tregaskiss through-arm cable for all models listed above (consumables, neck, torch and power pin remain Tregaskiss branded). For AR/MA1440, MH12, AR/MA2010, AR/MA3120, AR1730, MH24 models, the system also includes a Motoman-specific plastic torch spacer which allows us to bury the cable termination into the torch and away from the articulation on axis 5. This Motoman spacer is shorter than the Tregaskiss spacer and as a result, the Motoman cable for this setup is also shorter than the Tregaskiss-specific setup.

                                      June 6, 2016
