Top 5 Reasons To Get Volumetric Mixer Training
Want to know a little secret that’s frequently the key to unlocking increased employee productivity and higher profits? It’s concrete mixer training! Whether you’re entering the world of volumetric mixers, or have a current fleet, Cemen Tech shares five reasons why this type of training is a must.
1. Protect Your Investment & Get The Most Out Of Your New Equipment
Adding a mobile concrete mixer to your business is a capital investment. And with any type of capital, ensuring a long functional — and productive — lifespan is crucial to protecting your bottom line. But, a key caveat to training is learning how to properly operate and thus receive the most from your new equipment.
2. Maximize Uptime & Profit
Downtime, planned or otherwise, is a double-edged sword in terms of cost. There’s the cost of time spent troubleshooting an issue then waiting for an adequate resolution. Then, there’s the actual cost of experienced employees attempting to make up the difference for untrained and/or inexperienced coworkers.
3. Prevent Catastrophic Failures Resulting In Extended Downtime
One of the leading causes of equipment failure is improper usage. Though the concrete may continue to pour, the great unknown of what is happening behind the scenes could be doing more harm than good. Training is the best way to reduce this issue and maintain the integrity of any volumetric concrete mixer.
4. Control Operating Costs
When your employees are adequately trained on how to handle a mixer, the overall operating costs to the business fall. This is because everyone not only knows appropriate levels and data readouts but how even the smallest number on the control board affects the financial health of the company.
5. Control Your Concrete & Deliver A Customer Experience
Customer experience is frequently tied to the quality of the final product, in this case, concrete. The more control you have over every facet and step to producing a high-quality product, the more likely your customers will also enjoy a high-quality experience. Training shouldn’t only include the concrete mixer driver, but everyone in the business who engages with customers. Armed with the knowledge of the ins and outs of every mixer, employees are equipped to further the business every step of the way.
