Engine Driven Welders
Typically transported on a truck or trailer for welding on outdoor jobsites and as a backup generator, these machines use a gasoline, diesel, or propane fueled engine coupled to an electrical generator to produce power for Stick, TIG, MIG and Flux-Cored welding. The electricity generated by an engine driven welder powers fans, pumps, air compressors or other electrical tools commonly found on jobsites.
Numerous benefits can be gained from improved fuel efficiency and reduced noise when using new welder/generators with speed-regulating technology.
Jeff Herb of Miller Electric explains why no welding power source solution can fit all needs, then shows how an understanding of your application, your future needs and your environment will help you pick the right power source.
Lincoln Electric’s Prism Compact fume-extraction system for welding and cutting applications incorporates the Prism line’s vertical filter technology. Available in indoor and outdoor configurations, the short unit fits efficiently into smaller spaces.
Lincoln Electric’s Dual Maverick 200/200X is two welders powered by one diesel engine with two outputs, allowing two or more welders to work at the same time. Output remains steady even during arc stops and starts in dual mode.
Advanced power sources and welding technology from Miller Electric maximizes runtimes and fuel efficiency and reduces expenses in fabrication and construction work.
