NOTICE − Indicates statements not related to personal injury.
 Indicates special instructions.
This group of symbols means: Warning! Watch Out! ELECTRIC SHOCK, MOVING PARTS, and HOT PARTS hazards.
Consult symbols and related instructions below for necessary actions to avoid the hazards.
1.2 Arc Welding Hazards
The symbols shown below are used throughout this manual to call attention to and identify possible hazards. When you see the symbol,
watch out, and follow the related instructions to avoid the hazard. The safety information given below is only a summary of the more
complete safety information found in the Safety Standards listed in Section 1-5. Read and follow all Safety Standards.
Only qualified persons should install, operate, maintain, and repair this unit.
During operation, keep everybody, especially children, away.
ELECTRIC SHOCK can kill.
Touching live electrical parts can cause fatal shocks or severe burns. The electrode and work circuit is electrically live whenever the output is
on. The input power circuit and machine internal circuits are also live when power is on. In semiautomatic or automatic wire welding, the wire,
wire reel, drive roll housing, and all metal parts touching the welding wire are electrically live. Incorrectly installed or improperly grounded
equipment is a hazard.
•
Do not touch live electrical parts.
•
Wear dry, hole-free insulating gloves and body protection.
•
Insulate yourself from work and ground using dry insulating mats or covers big enough to prevent any physical contact with the work
or ground.
•
Do not use AC output in damp areas, if movement is confined, or if there is a danger of falling.
•
Use AC output ONLY if required for the welding process.
•
If AC output is required, use remote output control if present on unit.
•
Additional safety precautions are required when any of the following electrically hazardous conditions are present: in damp locations
or while wearing wet clothing; on metal structures such as floors, gratings, or scaffolds; when in cramped positions such as sitting,
kneeling, or lying; or when there is a high risk of unavoidable or accidental contact with the work piece or ground. For these
conditions, use the following equipment in order presented: 1) a semiautomatic DC constant voltage (wire) welder, 2) a DC manual
(stick) welder, or 3) an AC welder with reduced open-circuit voltage. In most situations, use of a DC, constant voltage wire welder is
recommended. And, do not work alone!
•
Disconnect input power or stop engine before installing or servicing this equipment. Lockout/tagout input power according to OSHA
29 CFR 1910.147 (see Safety Standards).
•
Properly install, ground, and operate this equipment according to its Owner’s Manual and national, state, and local codes.
•
Always verify the supply ground − check and be sure that input power cord ground wire is properly connected to ground terminal in
disconnect box or that cord plug is connected to a properly grounded receptacle outlet.
•
When making input connections, attach proper grounding conductor first − double-check connections.
•
Keep cords dry, free of oil and grease, and protected from hot metal and sparks.
•
Frequently inspect input power cord and ground conductor for damage or bare wiring – replace immediately if damaged – bare
wiring can kill.
•
Turn off all equipment when not in use.
-1•
Do not use worn, damaged, undersized, or repaired cables.
•
Do not drape cables over your body.

•
•
•
If earth grounding of the workpiece is required, ground it directly with a separate cable.
Do not touch electrode if you are in contact with the work, ground, or another electrode from a different machine.
Do not touch electrode holders connected to two welding machines at the same time since double open-circuit voltage will be
present.
Use only well-maintained equipment. Repair or replace damaged parts at once. Maintain unit according to manual.
Wear a safety harness if working above floor level.
Keep all panels and covers securely in place.
Clamp work cable with good metal-to-metal contact to workpiece or worktable as near the weld as practical.
Insulate work clamp when not connected to workpiece to prevent contact with any metal object.
Do not connect more than one electrode or work cable to any single weld output terminal. Disconnect cable for process not in use.
Use GFCI protection when operating auxiliary equipment in damp or wet locations.
SIGNIFICANT DC VOLTAGE exists in inverter welding power sources AFTER removal of input power.
•
Turn Off inverter, disconnect input power, and discharge input capacitors according to instructions in Maintenance Section before
touching any parts.
HOT PARTS can burn.
•
•
•
Do not touch hot parts bare handed.
Allow cooling period before working on equipment.
To handle hot parts, use proper tools and/or wear heavy, insulated welding gloves and clothing to prevent burns.
FUMES AND GASES can be hazardous.
Welding produces fumes and gases. Breathing these fumes and gases can be hazardous to your health.
•
Keep your head out of the fumes. Do not breathe the fumes.
•
If inside, ventilate the area and/or use local forced ventilation at the arc to remove welding fumes and gases. The recommended way
to determine adequate ventilation is to sample for the composition and quantity of fumes and gases to which personnel are
exposed.
•
If ventilation is poor, wear an approved air-supplied respirator.
•
Read and understand the Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and the manufacturer’s instructions for adhesives, coatings, cleaners,
consumables, coolants, degreasers, fluxes, and metals.
•
Work in a confined space only if it is well ventilated, or while wearing an air-supplied respirator. Always have a trained watch-person
nearby. Welding fumes and gases can displace air and lower the oxygen level causing injury or death. Be sure the breathing air is
safe.
•
Do not weld in locations near degreasing, cleaning, or spraying operations. The heat and rays of the arc can react with vapors to
form highly toxic and irritating gases.
•
Do not weld on coated metals, such as galvanized, lead, or cadmium plated steel, unless the coating is removed from the weld area,
the area is well ventilated, and while wearing an air-supplied respirator. The coatings and any metals containing these elements can
give off toxic fumes if welded.
ARC RAYS can burn eyes and skin.
Arc rays from the welding process produce intense visible and invisible (ultraviolet and infrared) rays that can burn eyes and skin. Sparks fly off
from the weld.
•
Wear an approved welding helmet fitted with a proper shade of filter lenses to protect your face and eyes from arc rays and sparks
when welding or watching (see ANSI Z49.1 and Z87.1 listed in Safety Standards).
•
Wear approved safety glasses with side shields under your helmet.
•
Use protective screens or barriers to protect others from flash,glare and sparks; warn others not to watch the arc.
•
Wear body protection made from durable, flame−resistant material (leather, heavy cotton, wool). Body protection includes oil-free
clothing such as leather gloves, heavy shirt, cuffless trousers, high shoes, and a cap.

•
Welding on closed containers, such as tanks, drums, or pipes, can cause them to blow up. Sparks can fly off from the welding arc. The flying
sparks, hot workpiece, and hot equipment can cause fires and burns. Accidental contact of electrode to metal objects can cause sparks,
explosion, overheating, or fire. Check and be sure the area is safe before doing any welding.
Remove all flammables within 35 ft (10.7 m) of the welding arc. If this is not possible, tightly cover them with approved covers.
Do not weld where flying sparks can strike flammable material.
Protect yourself and others from flying sparks and hot metal.
Be alert that welding sparks and hot materials from welding can easily go through small cracks and openings to adjacent areas.
Watch for fire, and keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
Be aware that welding on a ceiling, floor, bulkhead, or partition can cause fire on the hidden side.
Do not weld on containers that have held combustibles, or on closed containers such as tanks, drums, or pipes unless they are properly prepared
according to AWS F4.1 and AWS A6.0 (see Safety Standards).
Do not weld where the atmosphere may contain flammable dust, gas, or liquid vapors (such as gasoline).
Connect work cable to the work as close to the welding area as practical to prevent welding current from traveling long, possibly unknown paths and
causing electric shock, sparks, and fire hazards.
Do not use welder to thaw frozen pipes.
Remove stick electrode from holder or cut off welding wire at contact tip when not in use.
Wear body protection made from durable, flame−resistant material (leather, heavy cotton, wool). Body protection includes oil-free clothing such as
leather gloves, heavy shirt, cuffless trousers, high shoes, and a cap.
Remove any combustibles, such as a butane lighter or matches, from your person before doing any welding.
After completion of work, inspect area to ensure it is free of sparks, glowing embers, and flames.
Use only correct fuses or circuit breakers. Do not oversize or bypass them.
Follow requirements in OSHA 1910.252 (a) (2) (iv) and NFPA 51B for hot work and have a fire watcher and extinguisher nearby.
FLYING METAL or DIRT can injure eyes.
Read and understand the Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and the manufacturer’s instructions for adhesives, coatings, cleaners, consumables,
coolants, degreasers, fluxes, and metals.
•
Welding, chipping, wire brushing, and grinding cause sparks and flying metal. As welds cool, they can throw off slag.
•
Wear approved safety glasses with side shields even under your welding helmet.
BUILDUP OF GAS can injure or kill.
•
•
Shut off compressed gas supply when not in use.
Always ventilate confined spaces or use approved air-supplied respirator.
ELECTRIC AND MAGNETIC FIELDS (EMF) can affect Implanted Medical Devices.
•
•

1.6 EMF Information
Electric current flowing through any conductor causes localized electric and magnetic fields (EMF). The current from arc welding (and allied processes
including spot welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, and induction heating operations) creates an EMF field around the welding circuit. EMF fields
may interfere with some medical implants, e.g. pacemakers. Protective measures for persons wearing medical implants have to be taken. For
example, restrict access for passers−by or conduct individual risk assessment for welders. All welders should use the following procedures in order to
minimize exposure to EMF fields from the welding circuit:
1. Keep cables close together by twisting or taping them, or using a cable cover.
2. Do not place your body between welding cables. Arrange cables to one side and away from the operator.
3. Do not coil or drape cables around your body.
4. Keep head and trunk as far away from the equipment in the welding circuit as possible.
5. Connect work clamp to workpiece as close to the weld as possible.
6. Do not work next to, sit or lean on the welding power source.
7. Do not weld whilst carrying the welding power source or wire feeder.
About Implanted Medical Devices:
Implanted Medical Device wearers should consult their doctor and the device manufacturer before performing or going near arc welding, spot
welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, or induction heating operations. If cleared by your doctor, then following the above procedures is recommended.

SECTION II
INTRODUCTION
The roundway carriage provides a heavy-duty
vertical mounting platform 27” (685 mm)
wide and 17” (430 mm) high for mounting all
popular types of semi-automatic and
automatic welding processes, system controls,
and accessories. It is designed for use with
Miller Welding Automation roundway tracks.
The platform itself is made from heavy steel
plate and travels on three bearing assemblies.
Two of these are at the top of the carriage.
These carry the weight and side thrust due to
the offset weight of the welding equipment.
One bearing assembly is mounted at the
bottom. This holds the carriage in alignment
and also takes a side load.
The SWCB-3AB and SWCB-3C series carriages
are driven by a DC permanent magnet
reversible 1/8 HP (90 watt) motor through a
gear reducer and pinion gear. The SWCB-3D is
the same but with a tach feedback motor
producing 11.3 lb-in (1.2 nm) of torque. The
pinion on the gear reducer engages the gear
rack mounted on the rear of the roundway
track. The motor and pinion are mounted on a
swing plate and can be engaged or disengaged
by means of the handle from either the left or
right side of the carriage.
Note: For information on the carriage control
supplied with your carriage, refer to the
supplied control manual.

SECTION III
INSTALLATION
The welding head and carriage are fitted to
the side beam track and require the removal
of one shipping bracket. The shipping bracket
is bolted to the carriage and the track, keeping
the carriage from moving during shipment. The
bracket is located on the top portion of the
track and carriage and is held in place with two
bolts. Remove this shipping bracket from the
carriage and discard.
•
•
The carriage has been adjusted and aligned at
the factory. If, during transit, the carriage has
be- come misaligned, use the following
procedure.
In most cases, carriage assemblies (either with
or without welding apparatus) are removed
from the track for shipping. To install the
carriage onto the track, use the following
procedure:
•
•
Set the lower roller block using the two set
screws (Item 4 of parts list drawing SWCB3AB) so that the single cam follower on the back
side of the track has a clearance of 0.010”
(0.25 mm) from the roundway. The two inner
cam followers should both turn when the
carriage is traversing the track. If one side is
not turning, use a soft mallet and tap the side
of the roller block where the cam follower is
not turning.
At each end of the track are two
mechanical stops. These stops serve as a
safety device to prevent the carriage from
falling off the end of the track. Remove
the carriage angle stop from the top end
of the track. Rotate the cam handles so
that the motor pinion is disengaged.
We recommend using a crane or fork lift
truck to hoist the carriage up to the track.
When lifting the carriage, you will find a
Note: The rear cam follower on the lower
roller block assembly should have a clearance of
0.010” (0.25 mm) between it and the
roundway.
½-13 tapped hole on top of the carriage.
This hole, along with an eye bolt (not
supplied), can be used for lifting the
carriage.
•
•
The hose support bracket has been removed
for shipping and can now be remounted to
the top of the carriage where the mounting
bolts are located.
Re-install the carriage angle stop.
As an alternative, use the lift holes
located in the gussets at either end of the
carriage to slide the carriage onto the
track.
Refer to Figure 3 to verify the carriage is
correctly aligned.
