Introduced by Miller Electric Mfg. Co., the Millermatic 190 with 240 volts of input power welds material from 24 gauge to 5/16-inch-thick in a single pass — the highest output in its class — and has a 40 percent duty cycle, a 10 percent increase over the previous model. The Millermatic 141 with 120 volts of input power welds material from 24 gauge to 3/16-inch-thick in a single pass.A smaller and shorter, newly redesigned case platform featuring more ergonomic handles increases portability — both models integrate front and rear steel-backed plastic handles and a third die-cast center handle for easy transport.

Miller Expands Proportional Gas Mixer line

Thursday, September 11th, 2014
Miller has expanded its Proportional Gas Mixers to include Argon Helium, Argon Hydrogen and Argon Oxygen gas mixers. The mixers are designed to precisely combine gases, as well as eliminate the stratification of gases after sitting for long periods of time. Proportional gas mixers reduce setup time, reduce costs associated with pre-mixed gases and reduce the number of cylinders stored in the facility. No electricity is required, and a simple interface allows for easy operation and training.
