Watch as Troy Ladd of Hollywood Hot Rods demonstrates MIG and spot welding to reach the same result on their 1961 Ford Sunliner build for the 2015 ARP/Street Rodder Road Tour and compares advantages of the processes, including productivity and easy access.
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.

Swartfager Welding is the epitome of a family business done right. What started six generations ago in the 1800s as a traditional blacksmith operation has evolved today into a booming modern fabrication business.
We visited Swartfager to discuss with them one of their more successful process advancements: transitioning to metal-cored wires and optimizing these applications with new Pulsed MIG and Regulated Metal Deposition® capabilities as made possible by the PipeWorx multiprocess pipe welding system.
Benefits achieved by Swartfager include increased productivity, less post-weld cleanup, and easier operation and training for its workforce – all while meeting code requirements.
