Syncrowave Complete
Package includes:

Coolmate™ 3X cooler
No. 37 running gear
TIG torch kit with
accessories
Foot pedal
Four gallons of coolant
Standard Machine
The balance control is adjustable to provide
additional oxide removal (more cleaning) or less
cleaning based on the condition of the material
being welded. See pg 2 for more information on
this feature.
Dual inline high-frequency points provide
intense high frequency for arc starting and
stabilization. Internal machine components are
protected from HF interference with additional
grounding and filtering for extended product life.
Syncro Start™ allows the choice of Soft, Standard
or Hot TIG starts based on the application, lead
lengths and tungsten size.
Digital welding meters display both amperage
and voltage for viewing of the actual and preset
values for greater accuracy and repeatability in
your welding procedure.
Last procedure recall simplifies changing your
Syncrowave back and forth from aluminum TIG
to stainless TIG to stick welding. One switch
makes all the control panel changes.
Power source is warranted for 3 years, parts and labor.
Original main power rectifier parts are warranted for 5 years.

Additional Features
Pulsed TIG control lowers the heat input into
the part and reduces warping and distortion
(optional on 250 DX models).
TIGRunner ™ system packages with
Coolmate™ 3X cooler. A 3-gallon cooling
system equipped with a visual flow indicator
ensures that the coolant is flowing. An external
coolant filter stops foreign objects from entering
the water cooled torch cable for better flow and
longer life. Extended cooling capacity ensures
maximum productivity. 3-year cooler warranty.
Stick welding features such as Adaptive
Hot Start ™ provide good arc strikes without
sticking. Once welding, the DIG control makes
dynamic adjustments to the welder to ensure
smooth E7018 and deep penetration E6010.
Tilted operator interface and built-in consumable
drawer provide added convenience to your
welding experience.
Arc timer/cycle counter records actual welding
time and number of arc starts. Great for estimating
job costs.
Squarewave technology developed and
patented by Miller Electric in 1976. Squarewave
technology was developed to improve your weld
quality and make TIG welding easier. Miller
Squarewave technology provides arc stability
when welding aluminum, prevents arc
rectification and eliminates tungsten erosion.
Welding aluminum? Oxides that form on
aluminum melt at temperatures over 3700° F.
The aluminum material that is located under
this layer of oxide melts at 1200° F. The
Syncrowave’s AC Squarewave welding current
automatically removes the layer of oxide which
is necessary for producing high quality welds.
Do you have power fluctuations?
The Syncrowave compensates for power
fluctuation without changing your welding
parameters. Line voltage compensation
works on fluctuating power ±10%.
