Handle light fabrication, maintenance and repair with the MIG and flux-cored capable Millermatic 190 and Millermatic 141 MIG welders from Miller Electric, which replace the Millermatic 180 Auto-Set and Millermatic 140 Auto-Set.
The 190 has 240 volts of input power and welds material from 24 gauge to 5/16-inch-thick in a single pass, and the 120-volt 141 welds 24-gauge to 3/16-inch-thick material in one pass. Both models are lighter than the units they replace, with the 141 weighing 51 pounds and the 190 weighing 35 pounds—9 and 37 pounds lighter, respectively.
They feature a Quick Select drive roll that offers three grooves—two for different size solid wire and a third for flux-cored wire. An angled cast-aluminum drive system has a calibrated tension know for consistent feedability, and allows for 10-, 12- and 15-foot MIG gun setup. An Auto-Set feature that automatically provides weld settings is standard, and an infinite voltage control allows for manually setting weld parameters.
