Lincoln Electric Introduces VRTEX® Mobile Virtual Reality Arc Welding Training System


The new, portable unit joins the existing VRTEX® 360 to provide total welding education solutions for schools, training centers and industry customers

Cleveland – Lincoln Electric’s newest addition to the VRTEX® family of virtual reality arc welding (VRAW™) training products, the VRTEX® Mobile, delivers a basic, hands-on entry-level training and skills solution that’s consistent with standard industry methodology and evaluation criteria – all in an easily transportable, virtual package. The portable VRTEX® Mobile is ideal for use in classrooms, the human resources department or at off-site training or recruitment events.

Key Features:

• Welding Applications – With a universal gun handle design (unigun), the VRTEX® mobile offers a pre-installed basic GMAW (MIG) package and an optional SMAW stick add-on package, providing training for flat plate, 2F and 3F joints and 1G, 2G and 3G grooves. The virtual SMAW device is at a fixed 90° angle.
• Portable Design Features – Designed for roadtrips and tabletop use, the VRTEX® Mobile comes with a monoscopic, face-mounted display with touchscreen user interface and a tabletop coupon stand.
• Real-World Welding; Fun “Gaming” Approach – Like its more sophisticated partner, the VRTEX® 360, the VRTEX® Mobile requires students to learn actual machine set-up replication and features a realistic welding puddle, sounds and effects. All VRTEX® training systems measure and record students’ training results in real time to assist educators in identifying welding deficiencies and strengths. When students complete their virtual training, they can walk into a real welding training booth, put on their helmets and pick up their welding guns feeling confident about set-up and welding procedures and technique.
• Safe, Cost-Efficient Learning – Both of the VRTEX® virtual reality welding systems – the VRTEX® 360 and the VRTEX® Mobile – eliminate the cost of hands-on initial learning. Students practice repetitive welding without the time needed to tack plate and toss scrap because the coupon isn’t real – it’s virtual, appearing with a press of a button. This eliminates costly waste. Lincoln Electric’s VRTEX® systems also help students to become comfortable with using a welding gun and with the various body positions needed for even the most challenging welding applications, increasing confidence and overall safety in the real welding booth.
