VRTEX Virtual Reality Welding

Computer based training system that is an educational tool designed to allow students to practice welding techniques in a simulated environment. This form of teaching transfer students welding skills from the classroom to the welding booth, while reducing material waste and energy consumption associated with traditional welding training. the VRTEX training system has proved that welding education is more effective and efficient with a blended training approach. Students will have the ability to practice, develop, and refine proper welding position techniques, as well as learn from student interactions & collaborations.
