Miller remote control technology for wider range of welders
- Published: August 21, 2017
Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has expanded its ArcReach remote control technology to more engine driven power sources in the company's Trailblazer and Big Blue families of products.
The technology is available on Trailblazer 325 power sources and the Big Blue 600 Air Pak, 800 Duo Pro and 800 Duo Air Pak models, providing complete control of welding parameters at the weld joint, without a control cord.
With the addition, ArcReach capabilities are now available standard on nearly all products in the Big Blue lineup and on Trailblazer 325 models. The expansion provides greater flexibility and fleet compatibility in heavy industrial applications, including maintenance and repair rigs, construction, mining maintenance, railroad maintenance and pipe welding.
The same ArcReach accessories that work on ArcReach-equipped XMT and Dimension power sources are now also compatible with select Trailblazer and Big Blue engine-driven power sources, so companies can expand use of the technology with their existing accessories. In addition, legacy wire feeders and stick/TIG remotes will continue to work with the ArcReach-equipped machines, so companies can fully utilize their existing accessories and equipment until they are ready to replace or upgrade.
