VRTEX® 360+ Dual User Virtual Reality Welding Training Simulator on Pallet


Top Features

  • Dual stands allow for training two students at the same time on one machine, each independently performing welds using different processes, coupons, joints and Welding Procedure Specifications (WPS).
  • Retractable SMAW stick stinger, GMAW/FCAW gun and GTAW TIG torch, filler metal and adaptive foot pedal devices realistically simulate the look, feel and action of actual guns and torches.
  • Practice flat, horizontal, vertical and overhead 5G and 6G on mild steel, aluminum, stainless steel.
  • Extremely realistic weld puddle is visually and audibly responsive to operator behavior, helping welders learn when to adjust welding technique. Welding discontinuities appear when improper technique is used.
  • Tracks and scores key weld parameters including work angle, travel angle, travel speed, distance and position.

Equipment Details

Life-like Welding Environment:

  • Realistic puddle and actual welding sound helps welders learn to respond and adjust welding technique.
  • Simulates sparks, slag, grinding and weld cooling.
  • Welding discontinuities appear when improper welding technique is used.
  • Virtual bend test provides results instantly and reveals what causes a weld to pass or fail.

Reinforcement for Students:

  • Demos of successful welds.
  • Replicates proper machine set-up using a Welding Procedure Specification. Students must select gas type, process, gas flow, amperage/voltage and wire-feed speed in the system.
  • Tracks and scores key weld parameters including work angle, travel angle, travel speed, distance and position.

Support for Welding Instructors:

  • Encourages more consistent feedback than traditional training.
  • Replay mode (in multiple views) helps instructors and welders identify what went wrong or well.
  • Intuitive software program designed to bridge welding curriculum with hands-on training.
