Technical college welding courses can deliver basic through advanced training on some of the world’s most well-known welding brands, like Lincoln Electric and Miller. Start with virtual trainers, work through live welders and advance to robotic welding. We have it all!
The AugmentedArc system creates a simulated environment for the learner to develop basic welding skills in a cost-effective, safe environment. Users wear a specially designed helmet that shows them images of the real world, augmented with computer-generated images of metal workpieces, weld arcs and weld beads.
This is a great product for technical and community colleges looking to add to their welding program with minimal product, material and building costs.
Ideal for lab training, the Miller LiveArc welding performance management system provides both a simulation/pre-weld setup mode as well as a live-arc training mode. This allows the student to gain experience and build techniques in pre-weld exercises before seamlessly transitioning into real welding on GMAW, FCAW and SMAW processes.
The VRTEX Transport is a basic, entry level welding training system. The system features include:
- Easily transported
- Universal gun handle allows for connection of a MIG/MAG gun attachment for GMAW and FCAW welding and an optional accessory for SMAW
- Flexible tabletop coupon welding stand
- Supports tee joint, flat plate and groove joint
- Easy to use, interactive touchscreen user interface VRTEX Transport is a best-in-class, advanced level welding training
The VRTEX 360 is designed to provide a full featured, expandable platform in an easy to use and engaging welding training tool. It’s ideal for basic to advanced welding training, and features:
- Supports all out of position welds
- Dedicated welding gun and retractable stinger
- Flexible and adjustable welding stand
- Supports tee joint, flat plate, groove joint, 6 in. diameter schedule 40 pipe, 2 in. diameter XXS pipe, and lap joint (available only with Upgrade 5)
- VRTEX® Extensions™ software upgrade program continues to offer new and exciting features
College welding programs wanting to make a name for themselves will start teaching robotic welding – the future of welding.
Lincoln Electric partnered with FANUC to help students learn the valuable skill of robotic welding. For those students who are familiar with the basic concepts of welding, adding robotic programming and operation is an important next step.
These systems come in the form of a mobile robotic welding cart to fixed or positioning systems, whichever solution is right for you, your students and local industry to meet the needs of developing the right workforce, with the right skills.
