APPLETON, Wis., December 3, 2007-At the 2008 CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show (Booth S-660) Miller Electric Mfg. Co. will show its new XMT® MPa multiprocess inverter with pulsed MIG, the PipePro(TM) 450 welding power source, the SuitCase(TM) X-TREME(TM) Series wire feeders, CST(TM) 280 8-pack welding rack, Digital Elite(TM) auto-darkening welding helmets and Arc Armor safety gear.
Miller products to be showcased at 2008 CONEXPO-CON/AGG:
o XMT® 350 MPa
For pulsed MIG welding in portable applications or when space savings and low weight are a prime consideration, Miller Electric Mfg. Co. offers its XMT® 350 MPa multiprocess inverter featuring built-in pulsed MIG capabilities. It is the industry's first welder specifically designed for pulsed MIG welding with voltage sensing feeders, such as Miller's SuitCase X-TREME Series.
o SuitCase(TM) X-TREME(TM) 8VS & 12 VS
Miller's SuitCase(TM) X-TREME(TM) 8VS and 12VS voltage-sensing wire feeders improve wire welding performance in portable applications. Both feeders feature two fully-driven drive rolls that provide positive feeding performance for solid and flux-cored wire.
The SuitCase X-TREME 12VS weighs 35 lbs. and holds wire spools up to 12-inches, while the more compact 28-lb. Suitcase X-TREME(TM) 8VS holds an 8-inch spool. The Suitcase X-TREME VS Series features a polypropylene case that withstands the rigors of extreme shipbuilding, construction, maintenance and rental equipment applications.
o CST(TM) 280 8-Pack Rack
Available in a lightweight and compact eight pack rack configuration, the Miller CST(TM) 280 Stick/TIG welder provides contractors with the ability to place a large number welding arcs at locations where space is at a premium. The 8-Pack Rack weighs only 640 lbs. fully-loaded and features a lift eye and lift truck fork pockets for job site portability.
o PipePro(TM) 450
Providing unmatched versatility for field and shop fabrications, the PipePro(TM) 450 offers superior arc performance in all welding processes: Stick, TIG, MIG, FCAW, Air Carbon Arc Cutting and Gouging.
The PipePro 450 features the patented RMD(TM) (Regulated Metal Deposition) which is easier to use than conventional pulse in out-of-position pipe welding applications. More user-friendly than competitive systems, operators can become proficient with the RMD Pro process much faster than they can with TIG or Stick welding.
o Miller Auto-Darkening Welding Helmets
The new top-of-the-line Digital Elite(TM) Series features a welding, grinding, cutting and new X-Mode that electromagnetically senses the arc, providing full protection for those instances when there is an arc present, but the sensors are obstructed. X-Mode eliminates interference from sunlight and out-of-position welding angles.
o Arc Armor(TM)
To meet the demand for attractive safety apparel that fits as well as it functions, Miller's Arc Armor(TM), a line of affordable safety apparel focuses on style, design and comfort. Arc Armor uses high quality materials and a welder-friendly design to break away from the clunky, boxy standard currently found in the industry. Arc Armor includes a complete line of welding caps, gloves, jackets and tool bags.
