Appleton, Wis.-based Miller Electric Mfg. Co. last week said it has created the industry’s first corporate welding blog — an online diary where authors share their ideas, opinions and other information. Miller invites people who work in the manufacturing, fabrication or construction welding industry to share their views on issues affecting their business, or on the welding industry in general. The Miller blog is called Viewpoints, and users can participate by going to www.MillerWelds.com/Results/blog.
Welding blog topics thus far include strategies to pair engine drives with inverters on construction jobsites; AC TIG welding with a pointed tungsten, pre- and post-weld heat treatment with fewer hazards; saving money on aluminum filler wire for MIG welding, when it makes sense to spend more on consumables; looking outside the welding cell to save money; and reducing your utility bills.
