- Two Models Available – The new, easily transportable VRTEX® Mobile, featuring a basic GMAW (MIG) (SMAW stick add-on package available), is compact and assembles quickly. It’s easily movable from place to place in a classroom environment, an industrial facility or recruitment event. The VRTEX® 360 delivers best-in-class virtual reality welding with 360-degree immersion in environments and applications, including SMAW, pipe welding, GMAW (including aluminum and stainless) multi-position welding and a continuing expansion of features with the VRTEX® Extensions™ software upgrade program.
- Real-World Welding Experience, Fun “Gaming” Approach – The VRTEX® family of VRAW™ training systems delivers hands-on training that’s consistent with standard industry methodology and evaluation criteria. Featuring actual machine set-up replication and a realistic welding puddle, sounds and effects, the system measures and records students’ training results in real time, allowing trainers to identify welding deficiencies. When students walk away from a VRTEX® machine into a real welding training booth, they can put on their helmets and pick up their welding guns feeling confident about set-up and welding procedures.
- Reduced Costs, Improved Safety – VRTEX® virtual reality welding systems eliminate the cost of hands-on initial learning – material waste and scrap – while creating a more proficient student. They can practice repetitive welding without the time needed to tack plate and toss scrap because the coupon isn’t real – it’s virtual, appearing with a press of a button. VRAW™ training with Lincoln Electric’s VRTEX® system also allows students to become comfortable with using a welding gun and with the various body positions needed for even the most challenging welding applications, increasing confidence and overall safety in the real welding booth.
