Miller Acquires Weld-Data, -Management CompanyJanuary 1, 2016
Miller Electric Mfg. Co., Appleton, WI, has acquired Impact Engineering, Jackson, MI, in a strategic alignment to provide the industry with expanded electronic weld-data gathering and process-management capabilities.
For more than 20 years, Impact Engineering has designed and manufactured weld-data-monitoring systems, and previously partnered with Miller on welding-information product development. The formal acquisition of the company allows Miller to broaden its portfolio to address the increasing demands for Miller’s Welding Intelligence systems, according to company officials.
As part of the acquisition, products from Impact Engineering, including ArcAgent and ArClient, will become part of the Miller Welding Intelligence offering. This offering currently includes Insight Core, a simplified, Internet-based welding-information product, and Insight Centerpoint, which offers real-time operator feedback and process controls. The product additions from IMPACT Engineering, specifically ArcAgent, reportedly will allow customers with mixed fleets of welding equipment, including non-Miller machines, to use Welding Intelligence products.
