Today, completing jobs on schedule and within budget in very important for many contractors, construction companies and service truck operators. With external pressures always on the rise, such as increasing fuel costs, equipment and materials and increasing government regulations, it is becoming harder to get the job on time and within budget.
A dual operator solution means multiple welders can use one machine for welding, cutting, or operating lights or grinders, which saves space on a crowded jobsite or work truck. Plus, a machine with dual operator capabilities can meet your needs for many different jobs, and may save the need for additional capital equipment purchases – saving costs. Fuel and maintenance costs can also be significantly reduced when compared with operating several engines, saving you money in the long run.
A diesel engine driven machine with dual operator capabilities can provide power for two on-board welding arcs and enough power to operate additional inverter based welding power sources. Weld controls and auxiliary power are completely independent for each arc, so operators can weld and operate a wide range of tools using the auxiliary power – with no impact on arc quality.
To maximise resources in the field coupled with greater ease of use dual operators are a better option now more than ever! Miller offers the Big Blue 800 Duo Pro which is capable of running up to 800 Amps for a single weld operator or 400 Amps each for two operators, with three phase power available at the same time.
In addition, Millers Big Blue 800 Duo Pro can be used by as many as six operators at one time at about 120 Amps each. This boosts productivity without the costs of adding machines or renting large power generators.
Boosts Productivity - Compared to a traditional unit which only allows a single operator, dual operator machines can be used for various applications and produces double the amount of welding arcs, which can boost productivity.
Reduces Noise & Improves Safety - Using one dual operator unit reduces jobsite noise and improves jobsite comfort, productivity and safety. Additionally, multiple units burn through fuel more quickly and emit double the about of impurities compared to dual operator machines.
Space, Costs & Safety Benefits - With the ability to reduce the amount of equipment needed along with the ability to increase productivity, it’s easy to see how dual operating machines can provide return on investment. Less equipment equals reduced logistical costs and planning, and also less clutter, which promotes efficiency and improves jobsite safety. Using a dual operator machine also provides the flexibility and power to plug in additional tools and power sources, which ultimately saves space on the worksite.
One engine that provides multiple arcs equals a lower cost-per-arc and fewer engine-driven welder/generators to buy and maintain. Plus, they also result in cost and fuel savings in the long run.
The ability to do as much as possible with one machine saves money and space on the service truck or the jobsite, and helps get work done more efficiently. A diesel engine-driven welder/generator with dual-operator capabilities is one fuel-efficient machine that provides a full range of options for multiple users — all without sacrificing arc quality or productivity.
