Miller Electric Mfg. LLC, a global manufacturer of arc-welding equipment, recently added the Hercules single-wire, high-deposition, automated MIG welding system to its equipment line-up.
The Hercules significantly boosts welding productivity rates without the expense of adding more weld cells. It delivers a gain of up to 30% or more in deposition rates and up to 30% or more in productivity with no loss of weld quality — ensuring greater productivity.
Developed by Miller, Hobart, and Tregaskiss, the Hercules MIG welding system combines Miller’s power source and wire-feed technology, a unique Tregaskiss torch, and a specialized Hobart metal-cored wire. Together, these components work to extend welding productivity rates.
The Miller power source — an Auto-Continuum and XMT 450 power source that works with the Hercules Drive to deliver the amperage and fast, precise wire-feeding the Hercules MIG welding system requires for durability and productivity.
The Tregaskiss Hercules torch — offers dual contacts that allow two sources of power input, which are crucial for the high-deposition process. Created specifically for the Hercules MIG welding system, this torch’s water-cooled design maximizes electrical conductivity and optimizes filler metal delivery.
The Hobart FabCOR Hercules metal-cored wire — formulated exclusively for the Hercules system, FabCOR is the only metal-cored wire that can accommodate faster travel speeds to deliver the Hercules system’s higher deposition rates and extraordinary productivity.
