Miller recently returned from the Minnesota State Fairgrounds where we were the main stage sponsor for the 2012 Car Craft Summer Nationals. The event, which ran July 20-22, 2012, featured more than 4,000 muscle cars, and attracted approximately 45,000 participants and automotive enthusiasts.
From the Miller booth, spectators could test MIG, TIG and Plasma cutting equipment, get trusted advice regarding welding and application questions, learn how to enter the Job Weld Done Giveaway and also check out the latest offerings in the Miller line of Arc Armor® welding protection.
Attendees with registered cars on display also had the opportunity to WIN daily welding prizes, including welding gloves (hourly) and an end-of-day prize: Spectrum 375 X-TREME with XT Torch Plasma Cutter (Friday); Diversion 180 TIG welder (Saturday); and Millermatic 211 Auto-Set MIG welder with MVP (Sunday).
New Arc Armor® Titanium Series™ welding helmets built for heavy-use/high-amperage applications feature Miller-exclusive InfoTrack™ technology that allows the operator to track arc-on time, improves comfort and adjustability. The new external grind button featured on the Titanium 7300™ and Titanium 9400™ allows welders to switch to grind mode without ever lifting their helmets.The Titanium 9400i™ features an auto-darkening lens that flips up to expose an ANSI approved grinding shield with an almost 180-degree field of view.
Check out the all-new digital controls with larger displays and intuitive design allow the welder to adjust modes, shade levels, delay and sensitivity, and a new three-year warranty matches the longest of any welding helmet in the industry today.

Miller teamed up with J.F. Ahern’s Pipe Fabrication shop to get them premium Arc Armor welding PPE that they had never tried before. The Miller team came in and personally matched up each of the welding operators with the correct welding protection for their application. They were given PAPRs (Powered Air Purifying Respirators) to keep from breathing in smoke and harmful fumes, WeldX and Classic Cloth Jackets, Titanium 9400i welding helmets with integrated grinding shields, gloves and more. After a week of use, the Miller team came back and got these testimonials from the guys and we couldn’t have asked for better feedback.

Heat stress relief, especially in welding environments where temperatures regularly exceed triple digits, is extremely important for the well-being, satisfaction and productivity of your welders. We recently spent some time with Valmont Industries in Tulsa to discuss their welding operation and to discuss their use of Miller’s CoolBand helmet-integrated cooling system for heat stress relief. Here’s an excerpt with a video of the interview that follows:
Valmont Industries—a worldwide leader in the fabrication of structural and transmission towers used by municipalities, utilities, communication companies and irrigation professionals—has 95 facilities worldwide, including in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Outside temperatures in the summer regularly reach triple digits in Tulsa, and temperatures inside the plant can reach as high as 110 degrees. Noting the effects that heat stress was having on his crew of 100 welding operators, Valmont Operations Director, Tony Schuler, worked with Bobby Goodman of Best Welders Supply to identify a solution to keep the staff cool.
The company decided to test trial Miller Electric Mfg. Co.’s exclusive new CoolBand™ headgear-integrated cooling system coupled with its Performance™ Series line of welding helmets. The result: cooler, more comfortable welders who are able to get more work done in the same amount of time because there is substantially less fatigue and they spend less time wiping sweat and de-fogging glasses and lenses.

With numerous studies pointing to heat’s negative impact on performance, fabricators are naturally searching for technologies that offer a combination of convenience and results. Miller’s CoolBand™ and CoolBelt™ are solutions that have been shown to reduce temperatures significantly with minimal extra weight or feeling cumbersome to the welder. At a price of $150 and $295, respectively, they also offer a quick return on investment through increased productivity and product quality.
There is no singular solution when it comes to heat stress prevention, and specialized apparel by itself may not be enough to keep workers functioning at their best. Every welding environment is different, and organizations typically employ a combination of measures that meet their needs. However, the welding helmet cooling devices now available on the market represent a big step forward in terms of convenience and effectiveness. Already used in a variety of demanding environments, they’ve proven to be highly effective as part of an overall plan to maintain the welder’s well-being and performance.
