We are pleased to inform you that Translas has made a further improvement to the 8XE MIG & 8XR Cobot Extractors Consumable Contact Tips and how you will greatly benefit from it. Starting🗓️March 1, 2022, all Translas 8XE/8XR Extractor torches will be provided with new and improved contact tips
➡️ The 8XE Extractor tip is M8X1,5 threaded and is not interchangeable with metric standard tips.
➡️ The shape of the cone has been changed to a less sharp point, the cone holds more copper material which results in a longer lifetime, the shielding gas coverage remains concentrated as before.
➡️ The tip is made of a new copper alloy, which has an even longer lifetime than the previous tip.
➡️ The Tip is nickel-plated, which causes reflection of radiation heat, creating less spatter attachment.
➡️ The wire inlet opening is improved from a 60-degree hard angle to a rounded shape (better wire feeding when changing wire spool).
Welding torches and welding equipment from Translas are distinctive in ergonomics, durability, performance, shape, and appearance.
