“We took him over to the welding lab and he actually
placed a decent weld down the very first time he's welded, and
it was all based on the VR training that he's done,” Schmidt
says. “He’d never welded before that, except in VR.”
Lincoln Electric has been using blended training for
about 10 years, however, the new training facility provides
space for more VR simulators. Sarah Evans, Manager of
Sales and Marketing for Education at Lincoln Electric, says
incorporating VR into training also increases efficiency from
a machines perspective.
“By utilizing the VRTEX machines throughout the school,
we are going to save on metal, gas and consumables — on
all the things that you need to weld,” Evans says.
