Advanced RMD® and Pulse MIG Processes Now Available in Miller® Big Blue 350 PipePro® SF Engine-Driven Welder/Generator

APPLETON, Wis. (December 14, 2015)  — Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has introduced the Big Blue® 350 PipePro SF engine-driven welder/generator — a smaller, more portable version of the Big Blue 800 Duo Pro SF that also features the exclusive FieldPro™ Smart Feeder compatibility for improved productivity and efficiency in field welding applications. The addition of the new power source helps Miller to address a wider range of customer needs for those who rely on an engine-driven welder/generator on their jobsites. 

The multiprocess system can run conventional stick, DC TIG, FCAW and MIG welding — and now advanced Regulated Metal Deposition (RMD®) and pulsed MIG processes with the addition of the FieldPro Smart Feeder. These advanced processes help to reduce weld failures and can eliminate backing gas on some stainless and chrome-moly pipe welding applications.

The FieldPro Smart Feeder brings complete control to the welding operator at the joint, optimizing uptime and simplifying parameter adjustments and process changeover, while helping to improve overall weld quality and productivity. Eliminating the need to travel to and from the power source also improves safety by limiting jobsite movement — reducing slip, trip and fall hazards.

The FieldPro Smart Feeder utilizes standard weld cables to deliver excellent RMD and pulsed MIG welding up to 200 feet away from the power source, with no expensive control cables that can cause clutter and hassle on a jobsite. Controls are labeled in common welder terminology to make it simple and intuitive to use.

This next-generation, rugged, low-speed diesel welder/generator is designed to improve productivity, quality, and safety with complete remote control of advanced RMD and pulsed MIG processes through the FieldPro Smart Feeder. Users can experience up to 12kW of single-phase power, along with superior arc performance and simple-to-set controls. Customers can choose from either a CAT or Mitsubishi engine — both are backed by worldwide support and service.

The Big Blue 350 PipePro also features a multi-function fuel gauge and engine coolant temperature meters, low OVC stick for increased safety without compromising arc starts and Auto Remote Sense for 14-pin accessories. Other standard features include digital preset weld meters, output contractor control, automatic idle and a 120-volt block heater.

Every component is engineered and built to ensure ultimate reliability in tough welding conditions. A unique feature of this model is the Miller-exclusive Line-X® top cover, which provides added durability for superior impact, corrosion and abrasion protection.
