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
VRTEX Mobile Virtual Reality Arc Welding Trainer
The VRTEX systems are virtual reality arc welding training simulators. These computer based training systems are educational tools designed to supplement and enhance traditional welding training. They allow students to practice their welding technique in a simulated and immersive environment. The VRTEX systems promote the efficient transfer of quality welding skills and body positioning to the welding booth while reducing material waste associated with traditional welding training. The combination of realistic puddle, arc welding sound, and real-time feedback tied to the welder’s movement provides a realistic and exciting, hands-on training experience.
The VRTEX® Mobile is a basic, entry level welding training system. It is designed to provide mobility in an easy to use and engaging welding training tool. The VRTEX Mobile is ideal for initial, basic welding training, as a recruitment and engagement tool for education or as an evaluation tool for instructors and educators to get a baseline on student knowledge. The VRTEX Mobile is definitely on the move!
EASILY TRANSPORTED from classroom to classroom or to a recruitment event or open house. The VRTEX Mobile can be ready to go in a matter of minutes.
BLENDED TRAINING SOLUTIONS FOR WELDING EDUCATION TOUCHSCREEN USER INTERACTION provides equipment and procedural set-up on an intuitive, resistive touchscreen. All screens mirror the VRTEX 360, making transfer of interaction seamless between the systems.
UNIVERSAL GUN HANDLE allows for connection of a MIG/MAG gun attachment for GMAW and FCAW, and a stick attachment for SMAW welding.
TABLETOP COUPON STAND easily attaches and stands on a standard table for welding and is taken apart for quick and simple storage inside the VRTEX Mobile.
VRTEX Mobile Provides:
- Multiple welding processes and positions
- Variety of joint configurations
- Instructor tools allow modification based on preferred welding program and style
- Realistic welding puddle appearance and sounds
- Magnetic tracking system provides accurate measurements for student score and evaluation
- Virtual weld discontinuities appear in the weld when improper welding technique is used
- Visual cues give real-time technique feedback
- Advanced scoring system for student evaluation
- Encourages interaction — the instructor can coach the welder while conducting virtual weld inspection
- Record, archive and verify student work.
CONSUMABLE AND ENVIRONMENTAL SAVINGS
- No welding consumables, wire or waste
- Track savings with the Weldometer™
English, French, German, Spanish, Turkish, Japanese, Chinese (Mandarin), Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, Korean, Hindi and Arabic
Allows the instructor or student to view an example weld or a demonstration of proper technique, prior to a weld being made
Allows for instructor or student to review and analyze the welding process

Plants, 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.
Our 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.
