Comprehensive Welding Training:
The Roadmap for a New Generation of Welders
As the welding profession continues to mature and evolve, so does the definition of knowing how to weld. These days, employers require experience with more types of welds than ever before as well as exposure to robotic automation, advanced welding equipment, exotic materials, specialized code certification, welding theory, welding procedure specifications and more.
As a result, public, private and skilled trade schools at every level are developing new welder education programs to deliver the workforce today’s welding industry demands to remain globally competitive. In parallel, the need for skilled welding instructors and curriculum with appropriate welding training courses continues to grow.
Lincoln Electric – with a century of involvement in welding training, research, instruction, participation in industry groups, code development and support of educator, trade and youth organizations – offers the industry’s most comprehensive group of equipment, electrodes, welding training systems, curriculum and resources available for the welding education market today.
Virtual Reality Welding Simulators
Combine Your Traditional Welding Training with VRTEX® Virtual Reality Welding Simulators
Help welders of all levels hone skills faster and improve their performance for less money with VRTEX® virtual reality welding simulators from Lincoln Electric.
From the most accurate representations of welding puddles and coupons, to actual welding sounds and the ability to track precise movements and positions, what can be learned virtually with a VRTEX® welding simulator seamlessly transfers into real-world, hands-on welding applications. Save on welding materials and reduce instruction and training costs while developing welding skills in less time than traditional training. Increase welder certification rates and reduce mistakes with a proven solution for developing the critical hands-on welding skills every welder needs to know.
REALWELD® Welding Training Systems
Adding a REALWELD® Advanced Trainer to your welding program
can help you improve training results. Using the system’s Arc OFF mode, your students can practice, troubleshoot and master welding techniques while reducing program material costs, including welding plate, electrode or wire and shielding gas. With audio coaching and instructor review of objective scores on five welding parameters,
your students hit the booth running to speed up comprehension and training time.
Robotic Welding Trainers
The Lincoln Electric Robotic ClassMate cell is a complete robotic training solution designed to meet the need for advanced manufacturing training. Instructors can teach robotic concepts in the classroom and quickly move to the lab for welding practice. Students can perform offline programming and then test their skills at a manufacturing-ready robotic cell.
