THE SMARTEST WAY TO A REAL WELDING AND CUTTING EXPERIENCE

Discover virtual welding training in a new, compact size

Lincoln Electric's new VRTEX® 360 Compact tabletop virtual reality welding simulator is small and portable making it easy to use in multiple environments.

The cost-effective small-sized solution offers superior graphics, which creates the most realistic and responsive welding puddle available. Experience full immersion with accurate sounds and movements. The new VRTEX® 360 Compact welding training simulator seamlessly transfers into real-world, hands-on welding training.

The first virtual welding trainer with optional cutting mode

The VRTEX® 360 Compact welding simulator offers welding training and optional oxy-fuel cutting training in one virtual device. This unique feature enables students to also experience torch cutting in a virtual environment. Every aspect of the oxy-fuel cutting feature is designed to address real-world cutting applications – from setting up the torch to executing the cut.
