Miller Diversion 180 TIG Welder 907627

For those Miller Die-Hard fans the 180 is an excellent choice. Miller is often considered one of the highest end welding brands available.


Easy-to-Understand Operator Interface
It’s as easy as “1, 2, 3” to set your machine and start welding! 1. Power-up2. Select material type3. Set material thickness range We’ve also added a digital display so you know exactly what your settings are.
Use It On 120 Or 240 Volt Input Power
Miller’s Multi Voltage Plug (MVP™) allows you to connect to common 120 or 240 V power receptacles without the use of any tools. Simply chose the plug that fits the receptacle and connect it to the power cord.
Utilizes Latest Inverter Technology
By utilizing an inverter-based AC/DC power source, a more efficient (less energy is used) and consistent welding arc is provided compared to older transformer based TIG machines.
Torch Designed for Maximum Operator Comfort
The package comes standard with a Diversion Series foot control and the Weldcraft A-150 TIG torch. This 150 amp, air-cooled torch features a compact and durable design ideal for both the professional and hobbyist welder. The Diamond Grip head design has ergonomic contact points for thumb and fingers, provides a more comfortable grip and reduces operator fatigue.
Light Weight = Portability
Whether it’s in the shop, garage or at the race track, at only 50 lbs it can be taken anywhere. You can’t do that with those heavy transformer machines!
Reduce Noise, Maintenance and Operating Costs.
Our Fan-On-Demand™ cooling system only operates when needed. This cuts down on fan noise, along with reducing power consumption and contaminants drawn into the machine.
Eliminate Waste of Expensive Shielding Gas
Our Auto-Postflow feature optimizes postflow time based on welding amperage. This allows for proper shielding of both the weld end zone and electrode every time without waste of gas or need for adjustment.
Dependable Arc Starts
Provides HF, non-contact arc starting to eliminate tungsten and material contamination time after time.
