New Miller XR™-Pistol-Pro Gun Designed for Aluminum MIG and Pulsed MIG Welding in Heavy Industrial Applications
APPLETON, Wis. — September 11, 2012 — Miller introduces the new XR™-Pistol-Pro Gun built for aluminum MIG and Pulsed MIG welding in heavy industrial applications such as truck and trailer manufacturing, shipbuilding, emergency and recreational vehicle manufacturing, and general fabrication. Compatible with Miller XR-S/D Control, XR-AlumaFeed™, and Millermatic® 252 and 350P models, the XR-Pistol-Pro Gun is a push-pull gun designed specifically for use with aluminum wire and other soft alloys where wire feeding consistency is critical.
The new XR-Pistol-Pro Gun features an improved motor and drive design for better feedability and arc consistency over longer distances that also helps reduce downtime and maintenance costs associated with complex drive systems. This new gun features more than 20 head tube options (sold separately) in different lengths and bend configurations to ensure optimal welding performance and access for every application. Each head also easily rotates for better access into tight spots and is self-seating, which helps prevent gas leaks and provides excellent current transfer for stable arc performance.
Rated at 100-percent duty cycle at 200 amps with an air-cooled torch and 400 amps with a water-cooled torch, the gun features aluminum-specific tension settings for 4000 and 5000 series aluminum wires to ensure smooth wire feeding performance. The gun also provides easy access to the drive assembly and a removable toolless head tube for easy service and maintenance without having to disassemble the gun.
