“The students will also be able to
have their results within a day, maybe
hours, instead of weeks,”
During IMPO’s tour of the school,
Schmidt showed off some of the
welding booths complete with the
latest in Lincoln Electric technology
ready for students to use. The previous
welding school held 100 welding
booths — 66 percent fewer than the
“We sell a lot of the products in these
booths and we want to show people how
to use them and how we recommend
they be used,” Schmidt says.
One feature Schmidt is especially
proud of is Lincoln Electric’s quiet
fume extraction equipment that
exchanges contaminated air with
clean filtered air. As an added bonus,
heating costs will remain stable.
Instead of extracting the fume from
the welding booths and exhausting it
to the outside, Lincoln Electric uses
technology that cleans the air and
keeps it inside the building. Utilizing
this green technology will allow the
weld school to control costs and keep
the space comfortable for students.
The new facility doubles Lincoln Electric's previous welding education capacity.
