Miller Electric Mfg. Co., has introduced what it calls "the simplest wire welder in the industry" with the new Millermatic 140 with Auto-Set.
The new machine requires the operator to set only the wire diameter and material thickness...the Auto-Set technology handles wire feed speed and voltage.
Auto-Set works with C25 gas (75% argon, 25% CO2) and either .024 or .030 solid wire. A keychain material thickness guide is included with the welder to help the user determine the thickness of the material they are welding.
The new Millermatic 140 replaces the company's popular 135 115VAC wire welder with new technology that allows the user to set only wire diameter and material thickness for proper welding setup. The Auto-Set technology automatically sets the machine's voltage and wire feed speed.
The Millermatic 140 is available with and without Auto-Set and replaces the Millermatic 135 as the company's basic 115 VAC wirewelder for metals as thick as 3/16-inch.
The 140 with Auto-Set provides an easy-to-use chart and a manual mode which allows the operator to manually set wire feed speed and voltage for broader applications.
Miller officials say the new technology was developed after customer research noted one of the basic issues among most welders was lack of confidence in setting welding parameters.
