The New Miller SuitCase X-TREME 12VSMiller Electric has introduced the next generation of their SuitCase X-TREME 12VS, a feeder designed specifically for field applications.

The feeder features a new drive motor assembly, motor control and integrated tachometer that provides electronic wire feed speed control and accuracy that rivals the performance of bench-top-style feeders found in shop environments.

A new wire delivery system also eases wire loading and provides minimal resistance in feeding, helping to further ensure consistent performance in MIG and flux-cored welding applications.

Wire feeder’s performance can fluctuate throughout the day – as ambient temperatures change, and as the feeder gets hotter or colder, wire feed speed can vary from its original setting.

The new wire delivery system allows for easy loading of the 12-inch wire spools and reduces drag on the wire. It also features a new visual scale on the wire pressure knob so users don’t need to guess when dialing in tension settings.

Other new features:

- Redesigned placement of the shielding gas inlet (for MIG and dual-shielded Flux-Cored welding applications).

- A new wire speed dual schedule feature that reduces wire feed speed to 87.5 per cent of standard speed for applications such as pipe welding. This feature requires a dual schedule gun or switch (sold separately).
