Lincoln Electric, in partnership with VRSim, has developed a new way to teach welding techniques through a virtual welding system called VRTEX 360. A VRAW virtual reality arc welding system, the simulator offers a virtual hands-on training experience for students, providing real-time welding technique feedback to both trainers and students. It feeds computer-generated data with a virtual welding gun and helmet equipped with internal monitors. Training can be conducted in various settings, including classrooms.
