Miller Electric Mfg. Co. introduces the PipeWorx Welding System.
The multi-process welding system is designed for use in pipe fabrication shops to provide ease-of-use and exceptional pipe-welding performance with quick, one-button changeover between processes. The PipeWorx System’s Stick, TIG, MIG (including Miller’s RMD and ProPulse technologies) and flux cored processes have been optimized specifically for pipe fabrication. Switching between the processes is almost instantaneous, with no need to manually switch polarity, cables or hoses, thus increasing productivity and eliminating a potential source of errors. The PipeWorx System’s ease-of-use and optimized weld processes enable even new welders to produce code-quality welds quickly and with less training.
Setting up a new process requires only a few simple steps, resulting in quicker training times and reducing the chance for input errors. Operators need only select the desired process and, as applicable, the electrode or wire, the gas, the voltage and the wire feed speed. Up to four programs can be stored for each process, and processes can be shared among different machines via a memory card. The front panel, designed by pipe welders for pipe welders, is clearly labeled, easy to use and provides only the controls necessary for the task at hand. To eliminate confusion, only backlit controls are adjustable.
Since all cables remain connected to the unit and do not need to be switched for the different welding processes, changing between processes can save several minutes per weld joint, as compared to changing processes with older technology. Quick Set technology automatically sets the correct polarity and returns to the last settings for that process. An innovative storage system keeps cables organized when not in use and helps eliminate the potential for incorrect or loose connections that could lead to weld defects, as with other systems.
The PipeWorx Welding System comes ready to weld out-of-the-box for immediate productivity.
