To better deal with the challenges of the business, Out Back Aluminum Welding relies on the Dynasty® 280 DX TIG/Stick welder from Miller. The power source provides the boat repair and fabrication shop with the flexibility and portability they need for TIG welding on boats — in the shop or at the marina — while still offering the arc performance and power capabilities to tackle a wide variety of repair jobs and produce the high quality work for which they’re known.

The new Spoolmatic Pro spool gun joins the professional-grade line of aluminum welding guns from Miller, offering quality and reliability, easy maintenance, and smooth and consistent feeding for light and heavy industrial applications. Two versions of the gun are available: the Spoolmatic Pro 15A (with a 15 foot cable) and the Spoolmatic Pro 30A(featuring a 30 foot cable).
Built for MIG welding in applications such as trailer manufacturing, ship and boat building, and general fabrication, the Spoolmatic Pro is a spool gun designed specifically for use with aluminum wire and other soft alloys where wire feeding consistency is critical.

Late last week Miller introduced the newest member to its family of industrial engine-driven welding generators, the Big Blue 450 Duo CST. This dual-operator welding system provides two completely separate TIG/Stick welding outputs as well as 12,000 watts continuous 3-phase power and 10,000 watts continuous 1-phase power.

Miller announced last week that it’s adding the Titanium 9400i industrial auto-darkening welding helmet as an option to its line of powered air purifying respirators (PAPRs). You can read all about Miller’s full line of PAPRs here.
Who needs a PAPR? People are using it for more than safety these days, as it also substantially improves the comfort of a welder throughout the day. Here’s an excerpt from an article put together last year with our friends at Ultra Machine and Fabrication. You can read the whole article here.
Ultra’s welding operations are intensive: two eight-hour shifts with almost non-stop welding (and thus, non-stop exposure to welding fumes). Miller’s PAPRs are integrated with EliteTM auto-darkening welding helmets to create a solution that fully covers the welder’s face and neck. Such a design minimizes direct contact with the welding fumes. Miller’s PAPRs (NIOSH Certified 42 CFR Part 84, Assigned Protection Factor (APF): 25) protect the welder beyond what OSHA regulates as acceptable levels in an eight-hour time period. Both audible and vibrating alarms notify the welder if air levels coming into the helmet fall below NIOSH specified levels”It alleviates breathing harmful vapors and smoke,” says David Setzer, welder/fabricator, Ultra Machine and Fabrication. “It keeps you cooler, and I go home at the end of the day and it’s not as hard to breath. It’s the best thing they’ve done.”
