Question about Miller Welding Tools

Open Question

We use Miller Auto Axcess 450 integrated with ABB robot. The problem is the Robot suddenly stop welding and the Miller Welding set indicate 'Over Current'.But after off and on,the robot works for a while and then goes back to the same problem mentioned above. From the manual, it stated that we have to press Purge/Jog buttons to clear the error and set the current value lower. Unfortunately we have tried that but no effect.

SOURCE: Trying to weld with Hobart 125 EZ

If you are using flux wire and not shielding gas, your clamp should be positive and the wire should be negative. Heat is provided by the electrical arc that happens between the wire and the material. Your welder by itself does not pre heat the material and with 3/16 material you should not need to preheat anyway.

The electrical arc is kept consistent by adjusting the wire feed rate and the current applied. You will need to experiment with these settings to find what works best with your welder. For this welder and 3/16 material, I would suggest you start at the upper end of the current scale and about a third of the way up on wire speed. The welder might have a chart for these settings in the manual or inside cover.

If the wire feeds too fast, it will push the probe around and you will feel pressure as the wire feeds out. If the speed is too slow you will get large spatters and intermittent arcs. When properly adjusted the arc will sound even and consistent. The arc gap should always be about 1/8 of an inch.

To maintain enough heat for good penatration, do not move the probe too fast, work in a pattern and watch the weld pool (melted metal) and not the arc. Watching the weld pool will clue you in if you are moving too fast or too slow.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: handler 140 wire jerky when welding

make sure rollers are clean and slots not wore out check alignment
do not over tighten wire feed so it smashes the wire
flux wire is hard to get a good setting
make sure if you can set it for gas welding it is not on this setting

SOURCE: miller bobcat 225g plus welding problem

If the idle is not working, then it is either you idle solenoid attached to the carberator or your idle board is bad. If you apply 12Vdc to the idle solenoid is should move, if not then the solenoid is shot, no good. If it works then you idle board is bad. Also, check to see if you are 60Hertz by measuring at the outlet with a frequency meter. I recommend a Fluke meter. You should have 120Vac and 60HZ at the outlet. If the frequency is low then your engine speed needs to be increased. The idle solenoid could be causing all these problems.

What does NET WAIT stand for on my miller axcess 450 and how do I get it to go away/fix it?

So I spent half a day swapping boards from a good 450 axcess from what I found between testing and the manual the net wait stands for network updating. The problem I had is the pc7 board (user interface card ) had a burnt spot on the solder joint for the ground I replaced the pc7 board and this fixed the problem.

I have a miller sycrowave 250DX i have been tig welding for about 10 years i bought this machine 2nd hand hoping it would work ok when i weld in AC and hq the arc seems like it just wants to stop it...

Did the machine ever work properly? I am assuming you are using a remote for tig welding. If you watch the points, does the HF stay on after the 5 to 10 seconds as you stated. It should stay on as long as you activate the machine. Make sure your Start Mode is in continuous. See page 42. Since there are so many options, check page 34 for help setting the options. If you still cannot get ti to weld properly, contact Miller for service.

Sir, we are using machine mounted MIG welding torches.Before these torches are working properly, now we got problem i.e, nozzle became red hot, cos of this we had stopped our production. pls suggest me.The...

Ensure that you are using the correct contact tip in the welding gun, if the tip is too short; the cup will fill with splatter and submit excess heat to the cup.

Also, make sure if you are using a name brand gun 'miller, lincoln etc' to use THEIR contact tips, the miller guns use a special tip 'the threads on the tip are mashed into the gun ensuring maximum contact for high amperage welding' if the wrong tip is used, it will overheat and jam the wire.

Another thing to remember is to check the amperage rating on the actual gun itself; you may have a 150 amp maximum gun on a 300 amp welding unit.

Good luck

My miller matic 35 welds and stops after about 2 inches let cool for about 30 to 40 sec and it welds again. fan runs

these need a good power supply , i looked and did not see the duty cycle on this welder if you are doing heavy welding 100% power it will need 30- 40 minutes to cool of to weld again. it all depends on the units duty cycle, stated on the welder spec plate ..can you bypass the auto feed speed mode ? this might be the issue.. good luck ..use all the protection you can when welding these are like the sun and can and will burn exposed skin and eyes .. if'n i was any help throw me a bone and vote thanks jay
