Mahany Welding Supply Co. in Rochester, NY, opened the Rochester Arc & Flame Center (RocAFC), a 5,000 sq. ft. training center for welding, glass blowing and blacksmithing instruction in January of 2012. The school is the next step for a distributorship that has trained more than 3,000 welders in the last decade.
At the heart of the classroom, student welders are protected by an advanced weld fume management system that is impressing welding veterans. Read more about the Arc & Flame Center.
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.

The Boys Scouts of America (BSA) has been a part of the lives of young men for more than 100 years –- not quite as long as welding has been around, but both the act of welding and the involvement in scouting have been important in the American story and worldwide success. In February the BSA unveiled the first official connection between Scouting and welding: Scouts can now earn a welding merit badge. It all came together thanks to a member of the American Welding Society and his fond memories of being a Scout.
The welding badge will certainly inspire more young people to become involved in and gain a passion for welding. The ultimate impact will be more skilled workforce moving into welding and welding related careers and having a positive influence on the future needs of industry.
Miller has re-engineered its class-leading Bobcat line of engine-driven welder/generators to reduce sound, reduce weight, offer a smaller footprint, reduce fuel use and simplify daily maintenance. Sound on the newly designed Bobcat models is reduced by as much as 33 percent, and the machine is up to 5 inches shorter and 55 pounds lighter (depending on the model). The Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) option with the Bobcat 250 also reduces fuel use by as much as 27 percent compared to carbureted models.
Engine-driven welder/generators are ideal machines for service trucks and/or emergency power situations on farms and ranches, and are also often found in construction, MRO, and fabrication applications.
The EFI option (Bobcat 250 only) optimizes the air/fuel ratio for less emissions, longer runtimes and superior performance compared to carbureted models. It provides more reliable starting performance in cold climates, requires no choke, and is less prone to fuel deterioration due to infrequent use. Payback can be achieved in a matter of months with up to 27 percent fuel savings.
Each Bobcat engine-driven welder/generator has also been fully optimized for truck integration. The shorter and lighter design allows more room for other tools and equipment, and reduces the wear and strain of a heavier machine on the truck’s chassis. Daily maintenance has also been made easier with front panel displays to help users keep track of service intervals, as well as the intuitive placement of service points. Oil and air filter checks are performed from the top by the front panel, and fuel fill and oil drain/filter are easily accessible on the side. Tool-less panels allow for quick access.
The three new models are:
