AlumaFeed 450 combines extra power and duty cycle with the latest in synergic pulse and profile pulse welding
- October 17, 2012
Miller Electric Mfg. Co.’s new AlumaFeed 450MPa is the dedicated aluminum machine built-in synergic or standard Pulsed MIG capabilities and designed with power to raise the bar, while still affording out-of-the box performance and ease of use in a package that in aluminum exclusive design.
The AlumaFeed 450 MPa is said to be a powerful solution that features Auto-Line power management technology for dirty or unreliable input power situations. The invert arc control technology is matched with a higher duty cycle machine for better performance. The extra power is the answer for larger diameter 1/16” wires and thicker material applications and rated at 450 Amps at 100 per cent duty cycle to support those applications.
The AlumaPower 450 MPa synergic power supply (an 80-lb. inverter with an output of 5 to 600 amps/10 to 38 volts and built-in programs for 4000 and 5000 Series aluminum) incorporates Miller’s newest generation of software and controls which together provide operators with greater weld puddle control and arc stability. To ensure reliability and quality in industrial applications, Miller uses primary power management and conversation technology (AutoLine) the same found in its XMT 450 inverter (which is regarded as one of the most reliable welders available).
The AlumaPower 450 MPa is optimized when you match Pulsed MIG welds through synergic operation with the XR- AlumaFeed push-pull wire feeder and an XR-Aluma-Pro OR XRTM-Pistol Grip push-pull welding gun.
The AlumaPower 450 MPa is said to afford exceptional electrical efficiency; at 400 amps, efficiency is 87.24 per cent, 350 amps of welding output at 60 per cent duty cycle with superior low-end aluminum welding performance. The Power factor of .95 enables smaller fuses/ breakers and primary wiring. Primary amperage draw at rated output is claimed to be 25 per cent less than the competition.
