The new VRTEX® virtual reality arc welding training system makes it possible to learn how to weld in an eco-friendly manner. Instructors who use virtual reality training will minimize their material waste and environmental footprint. The product teaches welding without the use of shielding gas, welding electrodes or weld coupons and does not require weld fume removal. It also reduces the disposal of waste as a result of training such as base material, consumable parts, etc. The VRTEX® also allows students to be taught with a reduction in overall energy consumption by requiring less energy than a traditional welding machine, feeder and weld fume control system. The VRTEX® will turn your welding program green.
Virtual reality welding is environmentally friendly. When properly integrated and leveraged, it can greatly reduce:
• Electrical consumption
• Base material usage
• Scrap and waste
• Welding consumable usage
• Costs associated with capturing and filtering welding fumes and gases
