VRTEX® ROI Calculator

The VRTEX® Return on Investment (ROI) Calculator provides an estimate of the potential savings through the use of virtual reality welding simulators in your welding training program. We have made it easy for you to calculate your ROI by developing the calculator. Simply enter your welding program usage and see your calculated savings.

Savings are achievable through:

  • Base material (coupons)
  • Welding gases
  • Welding wire and rod
  • Energy
