A cutting process by which metals are melted by the heat of an arc using a carbon electrode. molten metal is forced away from the cut by a blast of forced air. cac-a;
air carbon arc cutting;
A low-voltage, low-amperage arc starting procedure for tig (gtaw). the tungsten is touched to the workpiece; when the tungsten is lifted from the workpiece an arc is established.
A means to fasten the work lead (work cable) to the work (metal to be welded on). also, the point at which this connection is made. one type of work connection is made with an adjustable clamp.

A safety connection from a welding machine frame to the earth. workpiece connection for the difference between work connection and ground connection.
|advanced active field control technology|
A simple and reliable patented way of accurately controlling an engine drive's generator weld output.
Allows a tig arc on the trailblazer® series to crater-out, allowing time for the addition of filler, without the loss of shielding gas. eliminates the need for a remote control at arc end.
Allows a tig arc to be stopped without the loss of shielding gas on the trailblazer® series.
Allows easy reading of digital meters in direct sunlight or shade on trailblazer 275 dc and 302.
Allows for any primary input voltage within a range, single- or three-phase, 50 or 60 hz. also adjusts for voltage spikes within the entire range.
|weld at idle|
Allows pipepro 304 to automatically weld at a quieter, lower rpm, using less fuel. when more output is required, he machine goes to high speed without a change in arc.
Allows selectable customized arc starts on syncrowave® 200, syncrowave® 250 dx and 350 lx
Allows you to use either a standard gun or a spoolmatic® gun on millermatic® 210, 251, and 350 without flipping a switch. the machine senses which gun you are using when you pull the trigger.

|smaw or shielded metal arc|
An electrical circuit delivering three cycles within a 360 degree time span, and the cycles are 120 electrical degrees apart.
An electrical circuit producing only one alternating cycle within a 360 degree time span.
As the name implies, no current is flowing in the circuit because the circuit is open. the voltage is impressed upon the circuit, however, so that when the circuit is completed, the current will f... ocv;
Automated, electronically controlled welding system for simple, straight or circular welds.
Automated, robotically controlled welding system for complex shapes and applications where welding paths require torch-angle manipulation.
Automatically controls the pilot arc when cutting expanded metal or multiple pieces of metal, without manual re-triggering.
Automatically enhances stick welding, especially on pipe, by focusing the arc and preventing the electrode from going out.
|adaptive hot start|
Automatically increases the output amperage at the start of a stick weld, should the start require it. helps eliminate sticking of the electrode at arc start.
|aluminum pulse hot start|
Automatically provides more arc power to the millermatic® 350p to eliminate a "cold start" that is inherent with aluminum starts.
|auto remote sense|
Automatically switches machine from panel to remote control with remote connected. available on dimension nt 450, xmt® 350, trailblazer® series, and pro 300. eliminates confusion and need for pane...
|active arc stabilizer|
Enhances arc starts and provides a softer arc throughout all ranges, with less puddle turbulence and less spatter.
|wire feed speed|
Expressed in in/min or mm/s, and refers to the speed and amount of filler metal fed into a weld. generally speaking the higher the wire feed speed, the higher the amperage.
|constant-speed wire feeder|
Feeder operates from 24 or 115 vac supplied by the welding power source.
|voltage-sensing wire feeder|
Feeder operates from arc voltage generated by welding power source.
|dual power option|
Gives the option on the pipepro 304 engine drive to use 230 volt single- or three-phase electric input power, eliminating engine wear, noise and emissions, as well as fuel costs.
