The new Dynasty 280 DX with CV from Miller Electric Mfg. Co. (Appleton, WI) is a multiprocess welder capable of AC/DC TIG, MIG and stick welding. Weighing just 55 lb, this portable machine is suitable for the shop or jobsite for applications including shipbuilding, construction, precision fabrication, heavy fabrication, pipe and tube fabrication, and maintenance and repair. “This machine is where portability meets multiprocess for a wide range of applications,” says Brian Bellile, a product manager for Miller Electric. “This is the most versatile, portable machine in its class.”
With the Dynasty 280 DX with CV, welding operators can TIG weld 0.012 in to 3/8 in aluminum and 0.004 in to 3/8 in steel. The machine offers superior arc performance and the ability to TIG weld with AC waveforms, including advanced squarewave, soft squarewave, sine wave and triangular wave. Offering multiprocess versatility, the CV output of the machine delivers MIG welding capabilities when paired with a SuitCase® X-TREME™ voltage-sensing feeder that is powered off the arc voltage of the power source and can run both solid and flux-cored wires.
The Dynasty 280 DX with CV delivers up to 280 amps for welding and includes Auto-Line™ technology that allows for any input voltage hookup from 208 volts to 575 volts with no manual linking. This provides convenience for any job setting and is ideal for applications where there is dirty or unreliable power. This machine also uses high frequency (HF) on starts only to eliminate HF interference issues during welding. Blue Lightning™ high-frequency arc starter technology provides non-contact arc initiation, resulting in more consistent arc starts and greater reliability compared to traditional HF arc starters.
Operators can make precision adjustments using the machine’s all-digital controls, for greater quality control and repeatability. The Dynasty 280 DX with CV also includes Pro-Set™ technology that eliminates the guesswork when setting weld parameters. Operators can simply select the feature and adjust until Pro-Set appears in the display.

In Development: New Laser System Creates Grease-Repellent Metal Surfaces
Funded by an EU grant, a European consortium is treating metal with high-power lasers that texture the surface with microscopic spikes that prevent grease and bacteria from sticking. Rough micro-topography acts like a bed of nails to stop dirt or liquid from attaching.
