Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has introduced the Big Blue® 350 PipePro diesel engine-driven welding machine and AC generator. The machine is designed for transmission pipeline welding, as well as structural steel, construction, fabrication, and MRO applications.
The unit provides 20 to 400 amps for both DC SMAW (325 amps at 100 percent duty cycle) and DC GTAW; 14 to 40 volts for GMAW and FCAW (350 amps at 100 percent duty cycle); and 12,000-W peak/10,000-W continuous auxiliary generator power for running tools on-site.
Infinite arc control allows arc characteristics to be tailored to specific applications in SMAW, GMAW, and FCAW. The company's "Vault" — two halves of aluminum casing sealed together — protects the machine's circuit board from dirt, moisture, and heat. The 24.4-HP Mitsubishi engine lowers RPM to 1,850 and helps reduce noise and fuel usage.
An optional stainless steel package withstands corrosive elements in harsh environments. All models come standard with a LINE-X®-coated top cover.
