APPLETON, Wis., January 21, 2009”Miller Electric Mfg. Co.today introduced its first 200-amp water-cooled TIG welding systems, the Dynasty® 200 DXTIGRunner and Maxstar® 200 DXTIGRunner. A TIGRunner enables customer to order a complete, ready-to-weld TIG system with one stock number, as opposed to 15 different stock numbers for individual system components. The TIGRunner system eliminates the frustration associated with forgetting to order critical and necessary components, while the water-cooled torch increases operator comfort when welding for longer periods of time at higher amperages.
The Dynasty 200 DX has an AC/DC output of 1 to 200 amps, while the Maxstar 200 DX welder has a DC-only output of 1 to 200 amps. Previously, water-cooled components for these welders needed to be ordered separately and were not optimized to work as a system. For example, with the new TIGRunners, the power source and the Coolmate 1 cooler have approximately the same footprint, so they fit conveniently on the same cart. The 2-wheeled trolley cart greatly increases shop mobility and equipment organization, which especially benefits cramped or cluttered operations.
TIGRunner components include: includes Dynasty 200 DX or Maxstar 200 DX power source, Coolmate 1 cooler, 1 gallon of coolant, 2-wheel trolley cart with cylinder rack and cable and torch holders, 25 ft. Weldcraft WP20 water-cooled torch, cable cover, remote foot pedal or fingertip control, torch accessory kit with tungsten, 15 ft. work lead with clamp, 12 ft. gas hose, regulator/flowmeter, air-cooled TIG torch adapter, two 50 mm Dinse connectors and adjustable shoulder strap. A TIGRunner system includes every item necessary to begin welding (except a shielding gas bottle and personal safety gear).
The Dynasty 200 DX TIGRunner increases portability. The way the cart is organized lets us tip the system back, even in a tight space, and wheel it around the shop. It wheels right over power cords, which isn™t true of other systems. With the amount of aluminum we weld, a water-cooled system is pretty much a necessity to keep the torch cool and keep the arc stable.
