SimSpray has been shown to save up to 50% of training costs and train proficient workers faster. Train students in a fun, engaging way, and prepare them with the core skills they'll need on the job.
SimSpray uses immersive virtual reality spray painting simulation to teach fundamental spray painting skills for HVLP processes. Visual cues, detailed scoring, pass, and performance tracking provide a continuous source of feedback. Realistic paint effects show the coat quality, thickness, and defects produced by the student’s technique. Students can master quality painting techniques through constant feedback, performance analysis, realistic painting, and experience that SimSpray offers.
SimSpray augments traditional education methods by increasing hands-on practice time, reinforcing correct techniques, growing their skills in a shorter time with less cost. SimSpray combines game design and interactive technology to create innovative training that engages students and modernizes learning.
