By using electronic fuel injection instead of a carburetor, two updated welder generator models cut hydrocarbon and nitrogen oxide emissions by double digits.
By replacing the carburetor with electronic fuel injection (EFI), Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has managed to cut hydrocarbon and nitrogen oxide emissions by 33 and 27 percent respectively on each of two updated welder generator models, the manufacturer says. The Trailblazer 302 EFI and Bobcat 250 EFI are the only EFI engine-driven, twin-cylinder welder generators available in the industry, says Miller, improving claimed fuel economy up to 27 percent. Weld output and generator power is increased to 12,000 peak and 10,500 continuous watts on both multi-process machines, which offer stick, MIG, flux cored, AC/DC TIG and gouging capabilities.
The Big Blue 600 Pro welder/generator replaces the Tier 4-Interim Big Blue 500 with a more powerful Tier 4-Final–compliant engine.
Flextec 500 multi-process welder from Lincoln Electric delivers up to 500 amps of inverter welding power and is designed for construction, fabrication, shipbuilding and other heavy-duty applications.
The new Weld-Mask auto-darkening welding goggles from Miller Electric feature an extreme low-profile design that allows welding operators access into spaces where the use of a traditional welding helmet would be limited.
The Dimension 650 provides both power-intensive output for heavy welding and carbon-arc gouging, as well as precision arc characteristics designed for thin-metal welding, the company says.
