Introducing the New Millermatic 180 with Auto-Set—The Simplest, Most Powerful Welder In Its Class!
APPLETON, Wis. December 3, 2007—Carried over from the well accepted Millermatic 140 with Auto-Set, Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has now added the revolutionary Auto-Set feature to its 180 amp category machine. The new Millermatic® 180 with Auto-Set™ is the simplest to use, most powerful machine in its class.
“The Auto-Set feature is very popular with the owners of the Millermatic 140 with Auto-Set, our 115-V machine,” says Jon Ertmer, Product Manager, Miller Electric Mfg. Co. “Many enthusiasts told us they wanted a machine with the Auto-Set feature but they needed the extra welding output of a 230-V machine.” The new Millermatic 180 with Auto-Set gives you both. It runs off 230-V, giving the user the capability to weld from 24 gauge up to a class leading 5/16-in. mild steel in a single pass.
If you are unfamiliar with the Auto-Set feature here is how it works. Auto-Set is designed to work on mild steel using C25 gas (75% Argon, 25% CO2.) Knowing this, set-up cannot be any simpler:
- Select the wire diameter (either .023” or .030”.)
- Set the machine to the material thickness being welded (Miller even provides a free material thickness gauge to check it with!)
- Start Welding! The machine is automatically set to the proper voltage and wire feed speed for the job.
In the instances where Auto-Set cannot be used, the manual mode still exists. In manual mode the Millermatic 180 Auto-Set is set-up like any other MIG machine. The user sets the voltage and wire feed speed according to the provided parameter chart.
A great new accessory for the Millermatic 180 with Auto-Set is Miller’s new Spoolmate™ 100 Series spool gun. The Spoolmate 100 Series is the simple and economical solution for aluminum welding on all Millermatic 140s and 180s. Hooked up to a Millermatic 180 with Auto-Set, the Spoolmate 100 Series can weld from 18 gauge through ¼” aluminum, perfect for most any do-it-yourself job.
Both the Millermatic 180 with Auto-Set and the Spoolmate 100 Series are available at welding supply distributors. To find your nearest distributor, or for more information on either product, visit www.MillerWelds.com.
