Miller Electric’s Trailblazer 302 Air Pak is a self-contained welding power source that welds at up to 350 amps, provides 13,000 watts of Accu-Rated generator power and 26 cubic feet per minute of compressed air at 100-percent duty cycle. The rotary-screw compressor delivers 70 to 160 pounds per square inch of air with no storage tank. It runs most air impact wrenches with the engine at idle, and is capable of working with ¼-inch carbons. Miller says there is enough power and air pressure to run its full line of portable Spectrum plasma cutters with a rated cut of 5/8 inch. A 30-horsepower Kohler gas engine powers the Trailblazer 302 Air Pak. Miller says it occupies up to 50 percent less truck space and up to 25 percent less axle weight compared to using a welder and separate engine-driven air compressor.
