Accu-Pulse™ (MTE) - MIG process that delivers precise control of the arc even
over tack welds and in tight corners. Provides optimum and precise molten
puddle control.

Accu-Rated™ Power (MTE) - The standard for measuring engine-driven
generator power. Guarantees delivery of all power promised.

Active Arc Stabilizer™ (MTE) - Enhances arc starts and provides a softer arc
throughout all ranges, with less puddle turbulence and less spatter.

Adaptive Hot Start™ (MTE) - Automatically increases the output amperage at
the start of a Stick weld, should the start require it. Helps eliminate sticking of the
electrode at arc start.

Advanced Active Field Control Technology™ (MTE) - A simple and reliable
patented way of accurately controlling an engine drive's generator weld output.

Air Carbon Arc Cutting (CAC-A) - A cutting process by which metals are
melted by the heat of an arc using a carbon electrode. Molten metal is forced
away from the cut by a blast of forced air.

Alternating Current (AC) - An electrical current that reverses its direction at
regular intervals, such as 60 cycles alternating current (AC), or 60 hertz.

Aluminum Pulse Hot Start™ (MTE) - Automatically provides more arc power to
the Millermatic® 350P to eliminate a "cold start" that is inherent with aluminum

Amperage - The measurement of the amount of electricity flowing past a given
point in a conductor per second. Current is another name for amperage.

Arc - The physical gap between the end of the electrode and the base metal.
The physical gap causes heat due to resistance of current flow and arc rays.

Arc-Drive (MTE) - Automatically enhances Stick welding, especially on pipe, by
focusing the arc and preventing the electrode from going out.

Auto-Crater™ (MTE) - Allows a TIG arc on the Trailblazer® Series to crater-out,
allowing time for the addition of filler, without the loss of shielding gas. Eliminates
the need for a remote control at arc end.

Auto-Line™ (MTE) - Allows for any primary input voltage within a range, single-
or three-phase, 50 or 60 Hz. Also adjusts for voltage spikes within the entire

Auto-Link® (MTE) - Internal inverter power source circuit that automatically links
the power source to the primary voltage being applied (230 V or 460 V), without
the need for manually linking primary voltage terminals.

Automatic Start at Idle (MTE) - Idles engine immediately when started,
extending engine life and reducing fuel consumption and noise.

Automatic Welding - Uses equipment which welds without the constant
adjusting of controls by the welder or operator. Equipment controls joint
alignment by using an automatic sensing device.

Auto-Refire™ (MTE) - Automatically controls the pilot arc when cutting
expanded metal or multiple pieces of metal, without manual re-triggering.

Auto Remote Sense™ (MTE) - Automatically switches machine from panel to
remote control with remote connected. Available on Dimension™ NT 450, XMT®
350, Trailblazer® Series, and PRO 300. Eliminates confusion and need for
panel/remote switch.

Auto-Stop™ (MTE) - Allows a TIG arc to be stopped without the loss of shielding
gas on the Trailblazer® Series.

Axcess™ File Management (MTE) - Software that turns a standard Palm
handheld into a data card and a remote pendant for all Axcess systems. Allows
e-mailing, storage, and transfer of welding programs.

Constant Current (CC) Welding Machine - These welding machines have
limited maximum short circuit current. They have a negative volt-amp curve and
are often referred to as "droopers".

Constant-Speed Wire Feeder - Feeder operates from 24 or 115 VAC supplied
by the welding power source.

Constant Voltage (CV), Constant Potential (CP) Welding Machine - This type
of welding machine output maintains a relatively stable, consistent voltage
regardless of the amperage output. It results in a relatively flat volt-amp curve.
