Virtual Reality Welding @ the MTC

Wednesday, 17 July 2019 07:57

virtualwelder1The Maritime Training Center has a new addition to its workforce: The Miller Augmented Arc. Miller’s Augmented Arc is an incredibly realistic virtual welding system that includes curriculum and quizzes, both standard and customizable, and welding exercises in a large variety of welding styles and positions. This equipment is designed to help students with no welding experience get an idea of the knowledge required to weld before they even set foot on the shop floor. This includes arc length, speed, work angle, and travel angle.

We will also be bringing this equipment at events like Worlds of Opportunity as a fun way to create an interest in welding for younger students, so be on the look out!
