FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Miller Expands ArcReach™ Remote Control Technology to
Additional Power Sources, Offers New Features to Simplify Ease of Use
By providing complete control of voltage at the weld joint – without the use of control cords — ArcReach
technology helps improve productivity, quality and safety.
APPLETON, Wis. (April 5, 2016) — Miller announced that it has expanded its ArcReach™ remote
control technology to three additional machines for portable welding applications found in the
construction, fabrication and shipbuilding markets: the XMT® 350 CC/CV, XMT 450 CC/CV and
Dimension™ 650 multiprocess welding power sources.
ArcReach allows welding operators to adjust and set voltage at the point of use — the weld joint —
without the use of control cords, reducing downtime and improving safety by reducing exposure to
tripping hazards and lessening operator fatigue associated with walking to and from the power source.
The technology also eliminates the need to settle for less-than-optimal welding parameters, which helps
improve weld quality, and it increases productivity by providing for more time to weld.
In addition to gaining point-of-use control, these machines now include a new Auto-Bind™ feature as a
component of the ArcReach technology. Auto-Bind automatically establishes exclusive communication
between the power source and wire feeder, using the existing weld cables when the system powers up.
There is no need to pull the trigger to establish the connection. The machine automatically selects the
correct welding process based on polarity and indicates that polarity on the feeder, making setup easier
for welding operators.
Miller is also offering a new ArcReach Stick/TIG Remote equipped with remote control technology that is
compatible with all three machines. This remote allows welding operators to set the amperage for stick
and TIG welding right at the weld joint, again eliminating unnecessary trips to the power source to adjust
welding parameters. The remote also includes the Auto-Bind feature and includes settings for welding
with American Welding Society (AWS) EXX10 and EXX18 series of stick electrodes, as well as offering
the ability to air carbon arc gouge.
The XMT 350 CC/CV and XMT 450 CC/CV multiprocess welding power sources are capable of MIG,
stick, TIG and flux-cored welding, along with air carbon arc cutting and gouging, and provide the flexibility
of a 14-pin connection for spool guns, feeders and remote controls. The Dimension 650 power source
offers the same multiprocess capabilities, with the control needed to weld thin materials and the capacity
to handle 3/8-inch carbon arc gouging applications. It has been designed to provide an unbeatable
combination of durability, output, efficiency and capability — all in a smaller, easier-to-handle package.
