Miller Electric Mfg. LLC, Hobart Filler Metals and Tregaskiss have announced the release of the Hercules single-wire, high-deposition, automated MIG welding system. The system delivers a gain of up to 30% or more in deposition rates and corresponding productivity with no loss of weld quality.
The Hercules welding system is ideal for medium to large manufacturing operations with robotic welding, specifically for those with long welds in the flat and horizontal welding positions. The system has been in a soft introduction phase with targeted Miller customers for several years, and Miller has worked with those customers to integrate the system.
Developed by Miller, Hobart and Tregaskiss, the Hercules MIG welding system combines Miller® power source and wire-feed technology, a Tregaskiss® torch and a specialized Hobart® metal-cored wire.
Manufacturing operations can eliminate welding bottlenecks and unlock unutilized capacity with the Hercules system, all without adding more automation welding cells that require additional floor space or brick and mortar. The Hercules system also offers simple integration, since it’s easy to set up and install for EtherNet/IP™, DeviceNet or Analog protocols.
