How Switching to MDX Consumables Will Change How You MIG Weld

Jammed bird nests of wires in your MIG welder are about to become a thing of the past. 

You already know that wire feeding through MIG guns has added a level of unmatched convenience and simplicity to many welding and production projects, but now with Miller’s line of MDX MIG welding guns and Acculock MDX consumables, MIG welding has never been easier, more comfortable, or more efficient. 

Miller MDX 250 MIG gun

Here is an overview of the advantages of MDX consumable kits that are compatible with Miller’s MDX MIG guns. Keep in mind that you can also adapt your current Miller MIG gun or Bernard MIG to use MDX consumables with an inexpensive diffuser. 

How MDX Acculock Consumables Help Welders 

With coarse threads on the contact tips, perfectly aligned power pin and contact tip, and error-proof liner trimming that eliminates the need to measure, MDX consumables take the hassle and guesswork out of MIG welding. Wires won’t catch or pile up in the gun because the durable threads ensure continuous wire feeding. 

By picking up a complete set of MDX Acculock consumables, you’ll have a fully compatible setup that includes a contact tip, nozzle, diffuser, liner and power pin cap flawlessly working together to deliver great welds. With steady, reliable wire feeding, you won’t have to worry about burnback or erratic arcs as you get to work on your welds. 

When it’s time to swap out your consumables, the MDX consumables are designed for easy removal from the MDX MIG gun. Converter kits make them a breeze to insert into your existing torch setup. 

Which Welders Use MDX MIG Guns and Consumable Kits?
