Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has introduced the new Multimatic200, an all-in-one portable multiprocess welding power source capable of
performing MIG, Stick and TIG welding processes in one compact design. The new
Auto-Set Elite feature allows operators to quickly and easily set weld
parameters based on material type and thickness, as well as fine-tune those
parameters to match each specific application. The Multimatic 200 system weighs
only 29 pounds and connects to common 120- and 230-volt power receptacles with
the Miller-exclusive MVP multi-voltage plug.
Ideal for use in light fabrication, maintenance and repair,
HVAC, construction and farm/ranch applications, the Multimatic 200 system has a
durable, impact-resistant polycarbonate case that protects the machine from
harsh environments and the rigors of daily use. Similar to the Millermatic®
Passport® Plus, the machine offers positive arc starts and a stable arc with
minimal spatter when MIG welding – with mixed gases and straight CO2. Stick and
TIG welding performance matches that of Miller’s Maxstar® 150 series of inverter
power sources, and the system is also compatible with a number of accessories —
including the TIG Contractor Kit and the Spoolmate™ 100 Series spool gun for
MIG welding aluminum — to provide greater application versatility.
“The multiprocess capabilities, the easy setup, and the
multiple power options make this the most versatile portable welding machine on
the market today,” said Ben Romenesko, product manager, Miller. “The small,
lightweight design makes for easy transportation and storage on trucks and trailers,
and at 29 pounds it is easily moved around the jobsite as needed.”
Auto-Set Elite Simplifies Setup, Operation
The new Auto-Set Elite function takes the basic details of
the weld and automatically sets the machine to the optimum parameters for that
joint. Auto-Set Elite asks the welder to select the following criteria to
accurately determine weld parameters:
- Welding process
- Wire/Rod/Tungsten diameter
- Material thickness
It also gives the operator the ability to fine-tune the
selected weld parameters to further match the arc to the application.
Another feature of the Multimatic 200 welding system is an
advanced LCD interface that prompts the operator to select the proper polarity
and gas mix for the process, and uses basic language descriptions — not
numerical codes — to display alerts on the machine. For instance, if there is a
cable error, the LCD will simply read, “Cable error; remove wire feed housing
to clear error.”
Multi-Voltage Plug Allows Welders to Go Anywhere
Popular on a variety of Miller TIG, MIG and plasma cutting
products, the MVP plug makes the Multimatic 200 the first multiprocess machine
outfitted with tool-less multi-voltage capabilities. The Multimatic 200 comes
with two adaptor plugs (one for 120 volts and one for 230 volts) that easily
change over the machine’s main power cord. Changing voltage plugs now takes
seconds, and Auto-Line technology automatically adjusts the machine to operate
at optimal levels based on incoming power.
The machine comes with a setup and operation DVD, as well as an information/settings chart and quick setup guide. Built and designed in Appleton, Wis., the Multimatic 200 welding system is CSA certified and covered by the Miller True Blue® 3-year warranty.
