New Millermatic® 190 and 141 MIG Welders Offer Improved Portability, Ease-of-Use and Arc Performance

Thursday, November 13th, 2014
Built for light fabrication, maintenance and repair, auto body and farm and home applications, the new MIG and Flux-Cored-capable Millermatic® 190 and Millermatic 141 MIG welders (replacing the Millermatic 180 Auto-Set™ and Millermatic 140 Auto-Set MIG welder models) offer personal users improved portability, ease-of-use and arc performance.

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.

Shawn Moreland, Hot Az Hell Welding

As an experienced welder, Shawn Moreland cut his teeth at Northern Pipeline, and a few other places before founding his own company. Today Moreland’s company, Hot Az Hell Welding of Chino Valley, Ariz., is known as one of Arizona’s premier welding contractors for building carbon steel handrails along Arizona’s highways.

After installing tens of thousands of linear feet of handrail, Moreland found that flux cored welding with Miller’s SuitCase™ X-TREME™ 12VS wire feeder could deliver significant productivity and cost savings.

Before purchasing the SuitCase wire feeders, Moreland and his crew relied on the Stick welding capabilities of their Bobcat™ 250 and Trailblazer® 302 welding generators. Now, Moreland and his crew run the SuitCase wire feeder off of the welding generators. By adding a SuitCase wire feeder and switching to flux cored welding, Moreland was able to realize a 33 percent increase in productivity, lower consumable costs, less cleanup and a better distribution of labor for a substantial return on investment.

“Between wages, consumables, fuel costs and actual production, I figure we’re saving at least $650 to $800 for every 100 ft. of handrail,” says Moreland. “And after seeing what this machine can do, I can honestly say that soon we will double our footage amounts in an 8-hour day.”
