Auto-Set-And-Go MIG
Miller Electric has integrated their exclusive Auto-Set feature into the all-in-one MIG welder to create the Millermatic 212 Auto-Set. Auto-Set simplifies weld setup by automatically selecting wire feed speed and voltage once the wire diameter and material thickness are input. The 212 Auto-Set is capable of welding up to 3/8-inch mild steel in a single pass. Need more auto settings? Well, how about Line Voltage Compensation to keep the voltage output constant even if the input varies by +/- 10 percent. An angled dual-gear drive system addresses the gun cable's tendency to angle downward under gravity, eliminating wire feed friction.
