Thursday, April 12th, 2012

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 Reinvents Bobcat™ Engine-Driven Welder Generators

Monday, April 9th, 2012

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:

Bobcat 250

Bobcat 225

Bobcat 3 Phase

Bobcat 250 EFI
