Miller® ArcReach® SuitCase® 8 Wire Feeder With Bernard® S-Gun™ 250 amp MIG Gun 951727
The Miller® SuitCase® ArcReach® 8 Wire Feeder with Bernard® S-Gun™ is a voltage sensing MIG wire feeder that has full remote voltage and amperage control without the use of a remote control cable. The secret to this technology is built-in circuitry in both the 8VS ArcReach feeder and Miller ArcReach welder that passes remote control signals through the welding leads, eliminating the need for costly remote control cables. ArcReach remote control distance is limited only by the length of your welding cable leads. ArcReach allows your MIG or Flux-Cored welding operation to take place further away from the welding power source and reduces downtime and costs by giving the operator full remote voltage AND amperage control capabilities at the site of the weld without using expensive remote control cables. The Suitcase X-TREME 8VS ArcReach MUST be paired with a Miller ArcReach welder to get the full benefits of this feature.(NOTE: The ArcReach 8VS wire feeder CAN be used with non-ArcReach welders. However, you WILL NOT have remote voltage control at the feeder)
The Suitcase X-TREME 8VS ArcReach wire feeder has up to a 330 amp welding capacity. It is extremely rugged and is designed to fit through small spaces, like portholes, where full size feeders can't go. It features an industrial wire feed speed control, wire speed dual schedule and improved wire delivery system. Consistent wire feed speeds and tough polypropylene shell make the SuitCase X-TREME™ 8VS the rugged, reliable choice. It comes complete with Bernard® S-Gun™ 250 amp MIG gun with "slim" handle design and 15 foot leads.Processes
Flux Cored (FCAW)
Full Remote voltage and amperage control of the welding power
source without a cord -
ArcReach™ technology uses the existing
weld cable to communicate welding
control information between the
feeder and power source. This technology
eliminates the need for control cords, and
their associated problems and costs.
Small size (H: 12.75 in. (324 mm) X W: 7.25 in. (184 mm) X D: 18 in. (457 mm) makes the 8VS extremely portable. Feeder fits through small spaces, like porholes, where full size feeders can't go.
Includes Bernard® S-Gun™ 250 amp MIG Gun with "slim" handle that is designed specifically for the shipbuilding and construction industries.
Portable wire feeding at its best.
The SuitCase X-TREME 8VS provides
wire feed speed that is accurate and
consistent from the start of the weld to
the finish, and from one weld to the
next. Consistent wire feed speed is
very important with large-diameter
cored wire, because small changes in
wire feed speed make large changes in
Wire delivery system bends wire over
a large radius and applies just the right
amount of force to ensure consistent feeding.
Wire speed dual schedule reduces
wire speed to 87.5 percent of standard
speed. Requires a dual schedule gun or dual
schedule switch (sold separately).
Electronic wire feed speed
control with integrated tachometer
ensures wire feed speed accuracy that
rivals the best bench top feeders.
Polypropylene case with built-in slide rails
and the ability to open the door to change
wire with feeder in vertical position.
Trigger hold, wire jog, and gas purge
are all located on front panel.
Digital meters with SunVision™ technology
display voltage and wire speed, and also
amperage if desired. Meters can be seen
clearly even in direct sunlight.
Wider voltage range for small and large wires
with no contactor chatter or arc outages.
Double-filtered gas valve helps keep dirt
from clogging and affecting gas flow.
Excellent starts and improved superior arc
performance for all types and sizes of wires
whether using CV or CC power supply.
Potted and trayed main printed
circuit board for the harshest
environments adds exceptional
reliability. Board has full-trigger
isolation so a shorted gun trigger
will not affect feeder operation.
