Safety Considerations
ELECTRIC ARC WELDING EQUIPMENT
CAUTION : READ BEFORE ATTEMPTING INSTALLATION, OPERATION
OR MAINTENANCE OF THIS EQUIPMENT
1-1 INTRODUCTION
This equipment is intended for ultimate
application by commercial/industrial users
and for operation by persons trained and
experienced in the use and maintenance
of welding equipment. Operation should
not be undertaken without adequate training in the use of such equipment. Training
is available from many public and private
schools or similar facilities.
Safe practices in the installation, operation and maintenance of this equipment
requires proper training in the art, a careful study of the information provided with
the equipment, and the use of common
sense. Rules for safe use are generally
provided by suppliers of welding power
sources, compressed gas suppliers, and
electrode suppliers. Careful compliance
with these rules will promote safe use of
this equipment.
The following Safety Rules cover some
of the more generally found situations.
READ THEM CAREFULLY. In case of
any doubt, obtain qualified help before
proceeding.
1-2 GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
A. Burn Prevention
ELECTRIC ARC WELDING PRODUCES
HIGH INTENSITY HEAT AND ULTRAVIOLET RADIANT ENERGY WHICH
MAY CAUSE SERIOUS AND PERMANENT EYE DAMAGE AND WHICH MAY
DAMAGE ANY EXPOSED SKIN AREAS.
Wear helmet with safety goggles or
glasses with side shields underneath,
appropriate filter lenses or plates (protected by clear cover glass). This is a
must for welding or cutting (and chipping)
to protect the eyes from radiant energy
and flying metal. Replace cover glass
when broken, pitted, or spattered.
Medical first aid and eye treatment.
First aid facilities and a qualified first aid
person should be available for each shift
unless medical facilities are close by for
immediate treatment of flash burns of the
eyes and skin burns.
Wear protective clothing - leather (or
asbestos) gauntlet gloves, hat, and high
safety-toe shoes. Button shirt collar and
pocket flaps, and wear cuffless trousers
to avoid entry of sparks and slag.
Avoid oily or greasy clothing. A spark
may ignite them.
Flammable hair preparations should not
be used by persons intending to weld
or cut.
Hot metal such as electrode stubs and
work pieces should never be handled
without gloves.
of compressed gases and cylinders, and
short circuits.
Ear plugs should be worn when working on
overhead or in a confined space. A hard hat
should be worn when others work overhead.
BE AWARE THAT flying sparks or falling slag can pass through cracks, along
pipes, through windows or doors, and
through wall or floor openings, out of
sight of the goggled operator. Sparks
can fly many feet.
B. Toxic Fume Prevention
WARNING: The use of this product may
result in exposure to chemicals known to
the State of California to cause cancer and
birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Adequate ventilation. Severe discomfort, illness or death can result from fumes, vapors,
heat, or oxygen enrichment or depletion that
welding (or cutting) may produce. Prevent
them with adequate ventilation. NEVER
ventilate with oxygen.
Lead-, cadmium-, zinc-, mercury-, berylliumbearing and similar materials, when welded
or cut, may produce harmful concentrations
of toxic fumes. Adequate local exhaust ventilation must be used, or each person in the
area, as well as the operator, must wear an
air-supplied respirator. For beryllium, both
must be used.
Metals coated with or containing materials
that emit toxic fumes should not be heated
unless coating is removed form the work
surface, the area is well ventilated, or the
operator wears an air-supplied respirator.
Work in a confined space only while it is
being ventilated and, if necessary, while
wearing an air-supplied respirator.
Gas leaks in a confined space should be
avoided. Leaked gas in large quantities
can change oxygen concentration dangerously. Do not bring gas cylinders into a
confined space.
Leaving confined space, shut OFF gas
supply at source to prevent possible accumulation of gases in the space if downstream valves have been accidentally
opened or left open. Check to be sure that
the space is safe before reentering it.
Vapors from chlorinated solvents can be
decomposed by the heat of the arc (or
flame) to form PHOSGENE, a highly toxic
gas, and other lung and eye irritating products. The ultraviolet (radiant) energy of the
arc can also decompose trichloroethylene
and perchloroethylene vapors to form phosgene. DO NOT WELD or cut where solvent
vapors can be drawn into the welding or cutting atmosphere or where the radiant energy
can penetrate to atmospheres containing
even minute amounts of trichloroethylene
or perchloroethylene.
C. Fire and Explosion Prevention
Causes of fire and explosion are: combustibles reached by the arc, flame, flying
sparks, hot slag, or heated material, misuse
To prevent fires and explosion:
Keep equipment clean and operable, free
of oil, grease, and (in electrical parts) of
metallic particles that can cause short
circuits.
If combustibles are in area, do NOT weld
or cut. Move the work if practicable, to
an area free of combustibles. Avoid paint
spray rooms, dip tanks, storage areas,
ventilators. If the work cannot be moved,
move combustibles at least 35 feet away,
out of reach of sparks and heat; or protect
against ignition with suitable and snugfitting, fire-resistant covers or shields.
Walls touching combustibles on opposite sides should not be welded on (or
cut). Walls, ceilings, and floor near work
should be protected by heat-resistant
covers or shields.
Fire watcher must be standing by with
suitable fire extinguishing equipment
during and for some time after welding
or cutting if:
1. Appreciable combustibles (including
building construction) are within 35 feet.
2. Appreciable combustibles are further
than 35 feet, but can be ignited by sparks.
3. Openings (concealed or visible) in
floors or walls within 35 feet may expose
combustibles to sparks.
4. Combustibles adjacent to walls, ceilings, roofs, or metal partitions can be
ignited by radiant or conducted heat.
Hot work permit should be obtained
before operation to ensure supervisor’s
approval that adequate precautions have
been taken.
After work is done, check that area is free
of sparks, glowing embers, and flames.
An empty container that held combustibles, or that can produce flammable or
toxic vapors when heated, must never be
welded on or cut, unless container has
first been cleaned in accordance with
industry standards.
This includes: a thorough steam or
caustic cleaning (or a solvent of water
washing, depending on the combustible’s
solubility), followed by purging and inerting with nitrogen or carbon dioxide, and
using protective equipment.
Python® Fronius Compatible™ Owner's Manual - Page i
Water-filling just below working level may
substitute for inerting.
its contents for other than its intended use,
NEVER as a support or roller.
A container with unknown contents
should be cleaned (see paragraph
above). Do NOT depend on sense of
smell or sight to determine if it is safe to
weld or cut.
Locate or secure cylinders so they cannot
be knocked over.
Hollow castings or containers must be
vented before welding or cutting. They
can explode.
Transporting cylinders. With a crane, use
a secure support such as a platform or
cradle. Do NOT lift cylinders off the ground
by their valves or caps, or by chains, slings,
or magnets.
Explosive atmospheres. NEVER weld
or cut where the air may contain flammable dust, gas, or liquid vapors (such
as gasoline).
D. Compressed Gas Equipment
The safe handling of compressed gas
equipment is detailed in numerous industry publications. The following general
rules cover many of the most common
situations.
1. Pressure Regulators
Regulator relief valve is designed to
protect only the regulator from overpressure; it is not intended to protect any
downstream equipment. Provide such
protection with one or more relief devices.
Never connect a regulator to a cylinder
containing gas other than that for which
the regulator was designed.
Remove faulty regulator from service
immediately for repair (first close cylinder
valve). The following symptoms indicate
a faulty regulator:
Leaks - if gas leaks externally.
Excessive Creep - if delivery pressure
continues to rise with downstream valve
closed.
Faulty Gauge - if gauge pointer does not
move off stop pin when pressurized, nor
returns to stop pin after pressure release.
Repair. Do NOT attempt repair. Send
faulty regulators for repair to manufacturer’s designated repair center, where
special techniques and tools are used
by trained personnel.
2. Cylinders
Cylinders must be handled carefully to
prevent leaks and damage to their walls,
valves, or safety devices:
Passageways and work areas. Keep cylinders clear of areas where they may be
stuck.
Do NOT expose cylinders to excessive heat,
sparks, slag, and flame, etc. that may cause
rupture. Do not allow contents to exceed
55 degrees C (130 degrees F.) Cool with
water spray where such exposure exists.
Protect cylinders, particularly valves from
bumps, falls, falling objects, and weather.
Replace caps securely when moving cylinders.
Stuck valve. Do NOT use a hammer or
wrench to open a cylinder valve that cannot
be opened by hand. Notify your supplier.
Mixing gases. NEVER try to mix any gases
in a cylinder.
NEVER refill any cylinder.
Cylinder fittings should never be modified
or exchanged.
3. Hose
Prohibited use. Never use hose other
than that designed for the specified gas. A
general hose identification rule is: red for
fuel gas, green for oxygen, and black for
inert gases.
Use ferrules or clamps designed for the
hose (not ordinary wire or other substitute)
as a binding to connect hoses to fittings.
No copper tubing splices. Use only standard brass fittings to splice hose.
Avoid long runs to prevent kinks and abuse.
Suspend hose off ground to keep it from
being run over, stepped on, or otherwise
damaged.
Coil excess hose to prevent kinks and
tangles.
Protect hose from damage by sharp edges,
and by sparks, slag, and open flame.
Avoid electrical circuit contact with cylinders including third rails, electrical wires,
or welding circuits. They can produced
short circuit arcs that may lead to a serious accident. (See 1-3C)
Examine hose regularly for leaks, wear, and
loose connections. Immerse pressured
hose in water; bubbles indicate leaks
ICC or DOT marking must be on each
cylinder. It is an assurance of safety
when the cylinder is properly handled.
4. Proper Connections
Clean cylinder valve outlet of impurities that
may clog orifices and damage seats before
connecting regulator. Except for hydrogen,
crack valve momentarily, pointing outlet
away from people and sources of ignition.
Wipe with a clean, lintless cloth.
Identifying gas content. Use only cylinders with name of gas marked on them;
do not rely on color to identify gas content. Notify supplier if unmarked. NEVER
DEFACE or alter name, number, or other
markings on a cylinder. It is illegal and
hazardous.
Empties: Keep valves closed, replace
caps securely; mark MT; keep them separate from FULLS, and return promptly.
Prohibited use. Never use a cylinder or
Repair leaky or worn hose by cutting area
out and splicing. Do NOT use tape.
Match regulator to cylinder. Before connecting, check that the regulator label
and cylinder marking agree, and that the
regulator inlet and cylinder outlet match.
NEVER Connect a regulator designed for a
particular gas or gases to a cylinder containing any other gas.
Tighten connections. When assembling
threaded connections, clean and smooth
seats where necessary. Tighten. If connection leaks, disassemble, clean, and
retighten, using properly fitting wrench.
Adapters. Use a CGA adapter (available
from your supplier) between cylinder
and regulator, if one is required. Use
two wrenches to tighten adapter marked
RIGHT and LEFT HAND threads.
Regulator outlet (or hose) connections
may be identified by right hand threads
for oxygen and left hand threads (with
grooved hex on nut or shank) for fuel gas.
5. Pressurizing Steps:
Drain regulator of residual gas through
suitable vent before opening cylinder
(or manifold valve) by turning adjusting
screw in (clockwise). Draining prevents
excessive compression heat at high
pressure seat by allowing seat to open
on pressurization. Leave adjusting
screw engaged slightly on single-stage
regulators.
Stand to side of regulator while opening
cylinder valve.
Open cylinder valve slowly so that regulator pressure increases slowly. When
gauge is pressurized (gauge reaches
regulator maximum) leave cylinder valve
in following position: for oxygen and inert
gases, open fully to seal stem against
possible leak; for fuel gas, open to less
than one turn to permit quick emergency
shut-off.
Use pressure charts (available from your
supplier) for safe and efficient recommended pressure settings on regulators.
Check for leaks on first pressurization
and regularly thereafter. Brush with soap
solution. Bubbles indicate leaks. Clean
off soapy water after test; dried soap is
combustible.
E. User Responsibilities
Follow all Safety Rules.
Remove leaky or defective equipment
from service immediately for repair. Read
and follow user manual instructions.
F. Leaving Equipment Unattended
Close gas supply at source and drain gas.
G. Rope Staging-Support
Rope staging-support should not be
used for welding or cutting operation;
rope may burn.
1-3 ARC WELDING
Comply with precautions in 1-1, 1-2, and
this section. Arc Welding, properly done,
is a safe process, but a careless operator
invites trouble. The equipment carries
high currents at significant voltages.
The arc is very bright and hot. Sparks
fly, fumes rise, ultraviolet and infrared
energy radiates, weldments are hot,
and compressed gases may be used.
The wise operator avoids unnecessary
risks and protects himself and others
from accidents.
Python® Fronius Compatible™ Owner's Manual - Page ii
A. Burn Protection
C. Fire and Explosion Prevention
Comply with precautions in 1-2C.
The welding arc is intense and visibly
bright. Its radiation can damage eyes,
penetrate lightweight clothing, reflect
from light-colored surfaces, and burn
the skin and eyes. Skin burns resemble
acute sunburn; those from gas-shielded
arcs are more severe and painful. DON’T
GET BURNED; COMPLY WITH PRECAUTIONS.
Equipment’s rated capacity. Do not overload arc welding equipment. It may overheat cables and cause a fire.
Comply with precautions in 1-2.
1. Protective Clothing
Wear long-sleeve clothing in addition to
gloves, hat, and shoes. As necessary,
use additional protective clothing such
as leather jacket or sleeves, flameproof
apron, and fire-resistant leggings. Avoid
outer garments of untreated cotton.
Bare skin protection. Wear dark, substantial clothing. Button collar to protect
chest and neck, and button pockets to
prevent entry of sparks.
2. Eye and Head Protection
Protect eyes from exposure to arc. Eyes
may be damaged by radiant energy
when exposed to the electric arc, even
when not looking in the direction of the
arc. Never look at an electric arc without
protection.
Welding helmet or shield containing a
filter plate shade no. 12 or denser must
be used when welding. Place over face
before striking arc.
Protect filter plate with a clear cover plate.
Cracked or broken helmet or shield
should NOT be worn; radiation can be
passed through to cause burns.
Cracked, broken, or loose filter plates
must be replaced IMMEDIATELY.
Replace clear cover plate when broken,
pitted, or spattered.
Flash goggles with side shields MUST be
worn under the helmet to give some protection to the eyes should the helmet not
be lowered over the face before an arc
is struck. Looking at an arc momentarily
with unprotected eyes (particularly a high
intensity gas-shielded arc) can cause a
retinal burn that may leave a permanent
dark area in the field of vision.
3. Protection of Nearby Personnel
Enclose the welding area. For production
welding, a separate room or enclosed
bay is best. In open areas, surround the
operation with low-reflective, noncombustible screens or panels. Allow for free
air circulation, particularly at floor level.
Viewing the weld. Provide face shields
for all persons who will be looking directly
at the weld.
Others working in area. See that all persons are wearing flash goggles.
Before starting to weld, make sure that
screen flaps or bay doors are closed.
B. Toxic Fume Prevention
Comply with precautions in 1-2B.
Generator engine exhaust must be
vented to the outside air. Carbon monoxide can kill.
Loose cable connections may overheat or
flash and cause afire.
Never strike an arc on a cylinder or other
pressure vessel. It creates a brittle area
that can cause a violent rupture or lead to
such a rupture later under rough handling.
D. Compressed Gas Equipment
Comply with precautions in 1-2D.
E. Shock Prevention
Exposed electrically hot conductors or
other bare metal in the welding circuit, or in
ungrounded, electrically - HOT equipment
can fatally shock a person whose body
becomes a conductor. DO NOT STAND, SIT,
LIE, LEAN ON, OR TOUCH a wet surface
when welding without suitable protection.
To protect against shock:
Keep body and clothing dry. Never work
in damp area without adequate insulation
against electrical shock. Stay on a dry
duckboard, or rubber mat when dampness
or sweat cannot be avoided. Sweat, sea
water, or moisture between body and an
electrically HOT part - or grounded metal
- reduces the body surface electrical resistance, enabling dangerous and possibly
lethal currents to flow through the body.
1. Grounding the Equipment
When installing, connect the frames of
each unit such as welding power source,
control, work table, and water circulator to
the building ground. Conductors must be
adequate to carry ground currents safely.
Equipment made electrically HOT by stray
currents may shock, possibly fatally. Do
NOT GROUND to electrical conduit, or to a
pipe carrying ANY gas or a flammable liquid
such as oil or fuel.
3. Cables
Frequently inspect cables for wear,
cracks, and damage. IMMEDIATELY
REPLACE those with excessively worn
or damaged insulation to avoid possibly
lethal shock from bared cable. Cables
with damaged areas may be taped to give
resistance equivalent to original cable.
Keep cable dry, free of oil and grease,
and protected from hot metal and sparks.
4. Terminals and Other Exposed Parts
Terminals and other exposed parts of
electrical units should have insulating
covers secured before operation.
5. Electrode Wire
Electrode wire becomes electrically HOT
when the power switch of gas metal-arc
welding equipment is ON and welding
gun trigger is pressed. Keep hands and
body clear of wire and other HOT parts.
6. Safety Devices
Safety devices such as interlocks and
circuit breakers should not be disconnected or shunted out.
Before installation, inspection, or service
of equipment, shut OFF all power, and
remove line fuses (or lock or red-tag
switches) to prevent accidental turning
ON of power. Disconnect all cables from
welding power source, and pull all 115
volts line-cord plugs.
Do not open power circuit or change
polarity while welding. If, in an emergency, it must be disconnected, guard
against shock burns or flash from switch
arcing.
Leaving equipment unattended. Always
shut OFF, and disconnect all power to
equipment.
Power disconnect switch must be available near the welding power source.
Three-phase connection. Check phase
requirement of equipment before installing. If only three-phase power is available,
connect single-phase equipment to only two
wires of the three-phase line. Do NOT connect the equipment ground lead to the third
(live) wire, or the equipment will become
electrically HOT - a dangerous condition
that can shock, possibly fatally.
Before welding, check ground for continuity.
Be sure conductors are touching bare metal
of equipment frames at connections.
If a line cord with a ground lead is provided
with the equipment for connection to a
switch box, connect the ground lead to
the grounded switch box. If a three-prong
plug is added for connection to a grounded
mating receptacle, the ground lead must be
connected to the ground prong only. If the
line cord comes with a three-prong plug,
connect to a grounded mating receptacle.
Never remove the ground prong from a plug,
or use a plug with a broken ground prong.
2. Connectors
Fully insulated lock-type connectors should
be used to join welding cable lengths.

Coolant Recommendations
Use Cobra Coolant (Aluminum Protection), P/N 931-0060. Cobra Coolant
does not contain reactive sulphur or chlorine and does not react with copper,
brass or aluminum.
The coolant flow rate should be a minimum of 15 GPH (1 qt/min) between
35 and 45psi. Contact the re-circulator manufacturer for specifications on
pressure.
Gun Lead Connections
Power Cable - Air Cooled
A #2 power cable is used on the Python® Fronius Compatible™ gun. The
gun and Power Pin ends of the cable are stripped to the copper strands and
wrapped with a copper strip. A setscrew holds the cable securely in the gun
body and in the Power Manifold with torque requirements of 55-60 in-lb.
Power Cable - Liquid Cooled
Python® Fronius Compatible™ liquid cooled gun utilizes a power/liquid cable
with a #6 AWG cable inside a 5/16” diameter hose. When liquid is used with
this cable and the #10 liquid cooled gas cup (P/N 621-0065), the system is
rated at 450 amps @ 60% duty cycle. The gun end is threaded into the gun
body with torque requirements of 100+5 in-lb.
Conduit
The Python® Fronius Compatible™ comes standard with a poly-lined conduit,
for feeding aluminum wire. The longer fitting with a shallow groove is used
on the gun end. A set screw located on top of the gun handle secures the
conduit in place. The cabinet end of the conduit is secured into the Power Pin
connector with a set screw.
Gas Hose
The gas hose is pushed over a barbed fitting on the gun body and Power
Manifold and secured with the hose retainer.
Coolant Connections
If so equipped, the ends of the coolant hoses push over a barbed fitting on
the Power Manifold and secured with the hose retainer.
Python® Fronius Compatible™ Owner's Manual - Page 1
The BLUE coolant supply hose pushes over a barbed fitting on the Rear
Brazed Body of the gun and is secured with the hose retainer. The RED
coolant return hose pushes over the barbed fitting on the Power Manifold
and is secured with the hose retainer. The opposite end of the RED hose
connects to the return hose of the coolant recirculator.
Both hose ends are male quick connect fittings.
Control Cable
A multi-conductor control cable is used on the Python® Fronius Compatible™
gun. The gun end of the cable is secured with a cable clamp and the wires
are connected to the potentiometer, the micro switch, the motor and the gun
body mechanically. Slack is left in the electric cable as it exits the back of the
gun to prevent cable and/or wire breakage. The cabinet end of the control
cable uses a 9-Pin, rectangular connector.
Section B Operation
General
The Python® Fronius Compatible™gun maintains a constant, steady, uniform
wire feed speed, regardless of curved or looped wire conduit. The constant
push exerted by the slave motor in the cabinet, combined with the pull of
the gun motor, causes the wire to literally float friction-free through the wire
conduit. The 24VDC gun motor is controlled by a three and three-quarter
(3 3/4) turn potentiometer in the gun handle.
Controls and Settings
Potentiometer
The laterally-positioned potentiometer is located in the lower end of the
handle, providing up to 800 ipm with 3 3/4 turns.
Micro Switch
The micro switch assembly consists of the
micro switch, and leads.
Trigger Sensitivity
The amount of trigger level travel can
be shortened for a "quicker" or "more
responsive" action.
A more sensitive trigger lever is produced
by reducing the gap between the trigger
lever and the micro-switch lever. By
turning-in the Trigger Sensitivity Adjustment
Screw, it closed the gap between the
trigger lever and the micro-switch lever.
This well enable the operator to increase
the sensitivity of the trigger lever.
Sensitivity Adjustment
With the wire feeder turned on (with or
without welding wire loaded), turn the
screw in until the micro-switch is activated.
Once activated, the gun and wire feeder
motors will begin feeding wire. Retract the screw accordingly until the system
is deactivated and adjusted to the operators' liking.
Drive Roll and Idler Rolls
General
The Python® Fronius Compatible™ gun comes standard with a knurled drive
roll and a grooved idler roll, which will handle aluminum wire with diameters
of .030 to 1/16 inch and steel from .030 to .045 inches. Optional insulated
Python® Fronius Compatible™ Owner's Manual - Page 2
V-groove drive rolls are also available for aluminum wire if desired (see
Optional Kits).
Drive roll tension is accomplished with a unique spring-loaded pressure
screw. The Python® Fronius Compatible™ comes from the factory with
the pressure adjustment screw preset. NO ADJUSTMENT is
required for all sizes and types of wires.
Drive Roll Installation/Removal
NOTE: Neither of the handles needs to be removed to access the Drive
or Idler Rolls.
Cam Lever
1. Pull the Cam Lever away from the idler roll.
This will relieve the pressure against the drive
roll (as shown in Figure 1).
Figure 1
2. Align the Drive Roll Removal Tool (P/N
931-0100) over the flats of the drive roll (as
shown in Figure 2). Hold the gun with one
hand or on a table top, with the other hand
give the Removal Tool a quick snap-turn in
the CLOCKWISE DIRECTION.
Figure 2
3. Once the drive roll is loose, continue to spin drive roll in the clockwise
direction to remove the drive roll from the gun.
4. Install a new drive roll on the left-hand threaded shaft. The drive roll will
self-tighten when it is feeding wire.
Idler Roll Installation and Removal
(Reference Figure 3)
1. Using a slot type screwdriver, loosen idler screw, taking care not to lose
lock washer under idler roll.
2. Insert new idler roll and lock washer onto screw, insuring that idler groove
is toward top and lock washer is beneath.
3. Tighten.
Figure 3
NOTE: Lock washer must be under idler roll or it will not turn freely.
Section C Accessories/Options
Insulated Drive Roll Kits are used to prevent preheating of the wire which
may soften it and clog the liner. This picking up of current at the drive rolls
rather than at the contact tip is usually not a problem unless using too large
of a contact tip or excessively oxidized aluminum wire.

Barrel Removal and Installation
To remove the barrel assembly, loosen the patented EZ Lock™ Taper lock
nut until it is clear of the threads. Pull barrel out of the gun body.
To replace a barrel assembly, open the drive and idler roll door and seat the
barrel assembly until the inlet guide is almost touching the drive and idler roll
and the rear face of the barrel is flush with the aluminum body block. Take
care not to damage the “O” rings when inserting into the body. Tighten taper
lock nut assembly firmly so that barrel cannot rotate.
Barrel Rotation
To rotate a barrel assembly, loosen the patented EZ Lock™ Taper lock nut
assembly no more than 1 turn. Rotate barrel to the position of your choice
and retighten taper lock nut assembly firmly so that the barrel cannot rotate.
WARNING: Do not attempt to weld without the barrel being tightly
secured in the gun body, or damage to the barrel or body may result.
Section D
Maintenance
Periodic Maintenance
Your Cobramatic® System is designed to provide years of reliable service.
Maintenance of the gun will normally consist of a general cleaning of the wire
guide system, including barrels, drive rolls, and conduits at regular intervals.
Remove spatter build-up from inside of nozzles with a hardwood stick.
The only parts on the Cobramatic® system that are subject to normal wear
are the conduit, contact tips, gas cups, front body liners, wire guides, drive
and idler rolls. A supply of these parts should be maintained on hand.
The number of units in operation and the importance of minimal “down time”
will determine to what extent spare parts should be stocked on hand. See
the “Recommended Spare Parts List” for the most commonly replaced parts.
If repairs do become necessary, qualified shop maintenance personnel can
easily replace any part.

Troubleshooting Guide
Regardless of which gun or feeder used, all MK Products’ push-pull guns
operate on the same principle. The slave motor in the feeder runs at a fast,
constant speed, but has very low torque. It is always trying to feed more wire
than the gun motor wants, and when the motor gets all it wants, it slows the
slave motor, preventing a bird’s nest. Because of the low torque produced by
the slave motor, a brake system is used to prevent wire overrun rather than
tension. The drag adjustment in the feeder is used simply to keep the wire
slightly taut, so it will not pull off the spool while feeding wire.
The high torque 24VDC gun motor is controlled by a solid state speed
control located in the feeder, and a pot located in the gun. The gun motor,
potentiometer, and micro switch are connected to the cabinet/control box via
a control cable and Amphenol connector. If this cable becomes damaged, a
variety of symptoms can occur, depending on which wire(s) break. To test,
check each wire for continuity and shorts.
Remember, the micro switch in the gun activates both the slave motor and
gun motor circuits in the cabinet. Therefore, if the slave motor and brake
solenoid operate, but the gun does not, look more toward the gun motor’s
24V circuits, speed control, control cable, or the gun motor. If nothing
operates, look more toward the slave motor’s input, micro switch leads, or
micro switch.
Testing The Gun
Reference the 9-pin rectangular diagram
on the Python® Fronius Compatible™ electrical diagram
for information about pin-outs and locations.
Motor Check
Remove the connector from the cabinet.
Using the 9-pin connector, check the resistance across pins “1” and “6”
(motor leads). The resistance across the motor should be between 5 - 10
ohms as the potentiometer is turned.
If an open circuit or short exist, check the motor leads and motor
independently.
Testing the Gun Potentiometer
Using the 9-pin connector, check the resistance across pin “3” (wiper) and
pin “2”. The resistance should vary from 0 - 5K ohms as the potentiometer
is turned.
Check the resistance across pin “3” (wiper) and pin “7”. The resistance
should vary from 5K - 0 ohms as the potentiometer is turned.
Testing the Micro Switch
Using the 9-pin connector, check for continuity across pins “9” and “5” when
the trigger is pressed.

CUP INSULATOR AND O-RING MAINTENANCE
CAUTION: Power-off the coolant pump before disassembling liquid-cooled barrels.
1. Unscrew Retaining Nut and slide back on barrel.
2. Using a firm pull and twist action, the Liquid-Cooled Gas Cup or Air-Cooled Gas Cup
Assembly can be removed from the Cup Insulator.
3. Inspect the Cup Insulator and o-rings (included with Insulator) for wear and proper lubrication.
It is considered good practice to replace all o-rings at the same time.
4. To remove the Cup Insulator, it must be unscrewed and pulled from the barrel. Use a rag or
towel (due to o-ring lubrication) and wrap it around the Cup Insulator.
Unscrew and pull when completed unthreaded from barrel. Be sure the Insulator is fully
unscrewed from the threads. Pulling the Insulator over barrel threads will damage the
threads on the Insulator.
Inspect o-rings on barrel for wear and lubrication. It is considered good practice to replace all
o-rings at the same time.
5. To install the Cup Insulator, it must be pushed all the way onto the barrel then screwed onto
the threads. If necessary, place small amount of o-ring lubricant on the inside diameter of the
Cup Insulator, this will help it slide onto the barrel.
Push the Insulator onto the barrel until it bottoms out, screw onto barrel threads.
The Insulator MUST be all the way onto the barrel to avoid assure proper coolant passage
and from blocking the gas outlet orifices.
6. Push Liquid-Cooled Gas Cup or Chrome Nut, Cup Adapter and Gas Cup Assembly onto Cup
Insulator. Slide Retaining Nut forward and tighten.
