Press Release Summary:
Model 714S bench style wire feeder features one tool-less, rotatable drive assembly and automatic run-in. Dual tension control provides independent drive roll pressure on front and back rolls, while trigger hold allows extended welds. 714S runs hard and cored wires from 0.023 to 1/8 in. dia at speeds from 50 to 780 ipm. Spool size capacity is 60 lb, and incorporates Posifeed(TM) four-drive-roll system that features all-gear-driven-roll carriers.
Original Press Release:
New 714S Wire Feeder Provides Cost-Effective, Simpler Operation And Increases Weld Efficiency
Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has introduced the 714S bench-style wire feeder, the second product in its 700-series family of semi-automatic, constant-speed wire feeders designed for use in heavy and high-volume manufacturing, metal fabrication and construction applications. The 714S wire feeder costs about $700.00 less than Miller's 714D feeder, yet it can be easily upgraded to the full-featured model by changing the front panel.
"This basic wire feeder provides superior arc control and weld consistency," says Jeff Hietpas, segment manager, Miller Electric, "for those who currently do not need meters or control of weld sequence. The ability to upgrade to a 714D ensures that, as business needs grow, the machine's functionality grows as well."
The 714S features: dual tension control, a trigger hold feature, a tool-less rotatable drive and an automatic run-in feature. The dual tension control provides independent drive roll pressure on the front and back rolls for more flexibility and helps eliminate bird nesting. Trigger hold allows the operator to make extended welds without finger fatigue by automatically staying locked in position until the trigger is pushed again. The tool-less rotatable drive assembly allows for easy rotation of the drive assembly, thus reducing stress on the gun cable, which reduces premature liner failure.
"The automatic run-in speed feature sets wire feed speed at a percentage of the actual welding wire feed speed from the time you pull the gun trigger until arc initiation," Hietpas notes. "After it senses an arc, the machine switches to welding speed. For example, using a slower run-in speed can solve problems related to wire stubbing during both arc initiation and tacking."
The 714S runs hard and cored wires from .023 to 1/8 in. diameter at a speed range of 50-780 IPM. The feeder has a spool size capacity of 60 lb. and incorporates Miller's unique Posifeed(TM) four-drive-roll system that features all-gear-driven-roll carriers that grip wire more positively than a single-driven wheel/idler wheel arrangement.
A Quick Change
Changing the front panel of an S model 714 to that of a D model enhances the machine's capabilities with customized weld programs, more flexibility with dual scheduling, adjustable weld sequence control and weld process range control.
"We made the process of converting one to the other less time-consuming and tedious by eliminating unnecessary work," Hietpas notes, "you simply purchase a D model upgrade kit and use it to replace your S models front panel. It is also necessary to add tach feedback and an encoder disk. This is a plug and play kit and requires no rewiring."
The 714S is compatible with any CV welding power source with a 14-pin receptacle and a 24 VAC supply, such as Miller's Deltaweld®, Dimension, XMT®304, XMT 456 and Invision.
The 714S industrial wire feeder is covered by Miller's True Blue&' 3-year parts and labor factory warranty.
