All In One Welder – Miller Multimatic 215 Features
Without reading a manual, anyone that has any familiarity around welders can setup the Multimatic 215 all in one welder in less than 5 minutes. With the automated LED panel, the operator trims out their wire-feed speed and voltage, hence creating the perfect MIG weld. Just select the process (MIG, TIG, or Stick), wire size (MIG), and metal thickness. The Miller Multimatic 215 takes it from here.
We were impressed with the quality of weld we ran, just straight out of the box, using the Multimatic suggested settings. A little tweaking for personal preferences, and the MIG bead was settling in very nice. For ease of transition from MIG to TIG, there are two separate Gas inputs on the rear of the Multimatic 215. The user can have their 75/25 (Argon/Co2) and the 100% Argon hooked up at the same time. With the TIG torch set, Miller includes an additional regulator as well, for Argon hookup.
The Miller all in one welder fits the beginner or novice very well. Depending on the work being performed, it may even fit the pro. We could see a bodyshop or mechanic using this as their sole machine. True fabricators are going stick with better single process machines.
