Virtual Welding Comes to ACWHCC

Ashland County-West Holmes Career Center’s Adult Education department recently gave a demonstration for local Superintendents on the newly purchased virtual reality arc welding system.  The new equipment will be used in the Adult Education Maintenance Training and Welding Technology programs.  With a virtual system such as this, the student can be immersed in his/her environment, with a feeling of being inside and a part of that world and totally focused on the welding experience.  The Lincoln Electric VRTex 360 is designed to allow Adult Education students to practice their welding technique and promotes the transfer of skills from the simulator to the welding booth without the waste incurred with normal welding practice.  Students using the simulator will wear a specially designed welding helmet with 3D stereo eyepieces and sound, while drawing the sight, sound, and feel needed to make a good weld.
