Welding Simulator

Virtual reality and augmented reality technology can be used to facilitate welding training in a simulation environment.

The use of welding simulator technology in welding training applications instead of traditional methods reduces material waste and improves workplace safety; joint methods, welding positions, materials, material thicknesses, and welding type may all be altered quickly.
