Classroom Weld Training
Introductory environment that incorporates STEM features

For some, the first step into the virtual learning environment can be a big one. Lincoln Electric makes that first step easier with VRTEX® Engage™. This standalone foundational system is designed to introduce students to the skilled trades - specifically arc welding.

To help improve the training of the nation's future welders, Lincoln Electric has developed a new way to teach welding techniques through a new virtual welding system called VRTEX 360. This next-generation virtual welding training system provides a "virtual" hands-on training experience that allows students to complete more passes than traditional training and provides real-time welding technique feedback similar to a video game to both trainers and students.

The VRTEX 360 feeds computer-generated data with a virtual welding gun and helmet equipped with internal monitors. Students practice welding in virtual environments, including simulated welding booth training environment or field welding applications. Training can be conducted in various settings, including classrooms, an important consideration especially for schools and training centers with limited resources and shop space.

As the latest addition to the Lincoln Electric VRTEX virtual reality welding education system product group, this standalone foundational system is designed to introduce students to the welding skilled trades.

VRTEX Engage is a complete package - it includes a touch screen monitor, welding gun, tracking device and a work surface. It’s all contained in a lightweight and portable carrying case that can be deployed in any setting – industrial, educational or elsewhere.

VRTEX Engage is a cost-effective tool designed to help educators train welders more efficiently and engage students to explore a career in welding. The system addresses introductory welding curriculum, including safety, machine and process selection, welding procedure set up, welding theory and more.

VRTEX Engage Benefits:

  • Learn anywhere - The portable VRTEX Engage system sets up anywhere to introduce skilled trades to students who are ready to explore a possible career in welding or consider degree programs in engineering and related fields.
  • One Small Step - VRTEX Engage provides an introductory environment thatincorporates STEM features, exposure to welding safety, procedures and techniques.
  • Capable Education Tool and Increase Hands-On Practice - VRTEX Engage provides instant feedback and assessments on safety
    and correct welding procedure settings. Students may view a demo of each weld, perform the weld and replay their own weld with the instructor for review and analysis.
  • No hidden fees - With VRTEX Engage, there are no licensing requirements or annual fees for use.
  • Reduce Costs with No Waste - VRTEX Engage helps your program reduce overall operating costs, as there is NO waste - no use of steel, electrodes, wire, shielding gas.

Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources

Educational EquipmentPlants, farms, and animals are the main functions of agriculture, but opportunities abound in this field This career pathway covers a wide array of career paths - ranging from animal science and veterinary science to metal technologies/welding, oil and gas production systems and energy & natural resources. Agricultural mechanics is a key component of providing strong, relevant agriscience programs that guide students toward prominent STEM jobs.

With the right combination of technologies and equipment, educators can show students how to construct and repair equipment, buildings and facilities by following architectural and mechanical plans, demonstrate mechanical equipment and power systems, and teach hydraulic and pneumatic systems service and repair.

Students need the opportunity to apply physical science principles to their studies with an agricultural mechanics career track that covers:

  • Agricultural equipment, power systems, alternative fuel sources and precision technology
  • Woodworking, metalworking, welding and project planning for agricultural structures
  • Welding trainers, CNC tables, and hydraulics training systems are all key components to the formula that makes up a robust educational program.

Explore hands-on learning technologies for agricultural programs.

Advanced Manufacturing Skills TrainersOur learning programs develop job-ready skills that have been proven time and again. Take a look at how we can help you be successful!

Colleges are challenged to offer courses whenever students are available – and frequently, wherever they are available. Students want courses that are available on campus as well as from home while also providing strong hands-on skills for the technology demands facing them. Meeting these demands is no small task.

Amatrol has learning programs that allow colleges to excel in this demanding environment. We offer a full range of learning systems, both in a traditional equipment lab setting as well as in a virtual lab, that meet and exceed students' expectations.
