Everyone likes super teams, right? The Avengers, the Rock and Kevin Hart, the Lakers… Well, maybe not every super team. But one super team that no one can doubt is Miller’s lineup of industrial equipment. These are anything but your average welding machines. Here’s a list of a few of our favorites.
Syncrowave 300 AC/DC TIG and Stick Machine
With industrial machines, no one’s trying to win a beauty contest. It’s not about needless bells and whistles or features you’ll never use. It’s about an incredibly reliable machine that’s 100% geared towards getting the job done.
That’s exactly how we’d describe the Syncrowave 300. Welders unfamiliar with industrial machines might wonder why it still has a traditional control panel compared to the new LED touch screens. But don’t let that fool you. Because with industrial welders, it’s all about what’s on the inside. And what’s inside the Syncrowave is 300 amps of pure and unadulterated power. It’s capable of pulsed TIG, AC/DC TIG and stick. With that range, there’s very little the Syncrowave can’t TIG weld.
While the Syncrowave 300 does offer plenty of quality-of-life improvements, it's designed around giving the operator tons of controls over its parameters and settings. If you’re in need of an industrial welder, then chances are that you’re experienced enough to want all the fine-tuning you can get. That being said, the pro-set feature will get you back to default settings with the touch of a button, making it easy to adjust and tweak your parameters.
XMT 450 CC/CV Multiprocess Machine
Because of the price of most industrial machines, they’re generally used by skilled welders. So it’s always surprising to hear how both experienced and beginner welders alike love using the XMT 450 CC/CV. Now, that’s not to say the XMT isn’t an industrial machine. It has everything you would expect. You get complete control over your settings, with the ability to fine-tune just about anything you want. But its incredibly smooth, reliable and consistent arc makes laying a bead so darn satisfying, welders of any skill level usually see the quality of their work jump by leaps and bounds.
Miller does have a number of XMT machines in their series, but the XMT 450 tends to be the most popular in the series. This is largely due to the flexibility of its 14-pin connection for spool guns, feeders, and remote controls.
The Miller Deltaweld 350 and Intellx Pro Wire Feeder
For anyone involved in heavy fabrication, the Deltaweld is a pretty popular powersource to use. It’s everything you’d expect from industrial equipment. Similar to the above machines, the Deltaweld is all about what’s inside. The regular version comes with no screens and incredibly minimal controls. This is because it was designed to work with a separate wire feeder machine (such as the Intellx). There is a version of the Deltaweld 350 that comes with a 14 pin connection so if you have an older wire-feeder system, it can still connect. Make sure you get the right version based on the wire feeder setup you’ll be using.
Realistically, you’ll probably want to pair the Deltaweld 350 with the Intellx wire feeder. This comes in both single and dual set-ups, the latter allowing you to have two welders working off one power source.
