Miller has re­leased the multi-func­tional Big Blue 600 Air Pak welder/gen­er­a­tor, a 600A ma­chine that pro­vides field work­ers with on-the-go power for weld­ing, car­bon arc goug­ing, aux­il­iary power or run­ning an air com­pres­sor.

Aimed pri­mar­ily at sin­gle op­er­a­tors per­form­ing crit­i­cal re­pair and main­te­nance func­tions in ar­eas such as rail, min­ing, con­struc­tion and fab­ri­ca­tion, the 600 Air Pak fea­tures a pow­er­ful EPA Tier 4 Fi­nal-com­pli­ant Deutz en­gine rated at 65.7hp.

“Re­spond­ing to a need in the mar­ket­place, the Big Blue 600 Air Pak from Miller is the most re­li­able, ver­sa­tile ma­chine avail­able in its class,” Miller prod­uct man­ager Ben Froland says. “We know that job­site de­mands vary greatly, so Miller has ex­panded our welder/gen­er­a­tor of­fer­ing to en­sure that no mat­ter what your needs are, you can keep your work­site equip­ment fully func­tional – and your em­ploy­ees more pro­duc­tive through­out the day.”

This model fea­tures an Inger­soll Rand screw-type air com­pres­sor, which Froland says makes it ideal for goug­ing. It also can op­er­ate a full range of pneu­matic tools, sup­ply­ing up to 1700lpm of air at seven bars with a 100 per cent duty cy­cle. Up­grades from pre­vi­ous models in­clude im­proved arc char­ac­ter­is­tics, dig­i­tal weld me­ters and dis­play, and a four­inch en­gine dis­play that re­places the tra­di­tional clus­ter of ana­logue gauges.

A ma­jor new fea­ture of the Miller Big Blue 600 Air Pak is the abil­ity to use aux­il­iary power while weld­ing.

“With up to 20,000 watts of con­tin­u­ous three-phase power, and up to 12,000 watts of con­tin­u­ous sin­gle-phase power, the unit is more than ca­pa­ble of run­ning com­mon job­site tools and equip­ment, such as lights, grinders and even other plug-in in­verter welders,” Froland says.

Stan­dard fea­tures also in­clude a 120V block heater and au­to­matic glow plugs for cold-weather start­ing, tai­lorable arc con­trol for SMAW and GMAW pro­cesses, and 90m-range wire­less hand re­mote com­pat­i­bil­ity.
