Miller Electric, a global manufacturer of Miller brand arc welding equipment, has released the new Millermatic 142 MIG welder, a lightweight machine in the 140-amp class.
“Designed for people who weld DIY projects or at work, the new Millermatic 142 makes it easy to get the professional-quality results that welders expect from a Miller machine — even if they don’t weld every day,” says Robert Rodriquez, product manager. “Miller believes that no job is a small job, and every job deserves Miller quality.”
The Millermatic 142 is easy to set up and use. Auto-Set technology eliminates guesswork, so welders can ensure that they are using the right parameters to make high-quality welds. Operators simply set the wire diameter and material thickness and they’re ready to weld.
A digital segment display lets users easily fine-tune parameters to exactly where they want them. The machine welds up to 3/16-inch mild steel in a single pass and comes spool gun ready for MIG welding aluminum.
Weighing less than 40 pounds, the machine is easy to move without help — so operators can work on more projects in more locations. Ergonomic handles allow users to carry the machine with one or two hands.
Additionally, the rated output of 100 amps at 60% duty cycle means operators can spend more time welding and less time waiting, providing the versatility to get more projects done. The machine also delivers full output when running on generator power of just 5,000 watts, so users can work almost anywhere.
