Product Description
Why Should I Choose Augmented Reality Welding Simulation?
Traditional welding training has always been linked to long studying times, burn risks, numerous repetitions, emissions and high costs. Just as aeroplane pilots use augmented reality for training, welders now have access to this incredible technology.

TechSoft offer the Soldamatic IE system which is the first welding training solution to use augmented reality. Using real welding torches trainees can develop manual skills and muscle memory without the risk of burning. In the long term this give rise to a significant reduction in both costs and training hours.



How Does it Work?
Each basic educational welding station consists of a control unit, a helmet, three welding torches, four different types of welding joints known as ‘coupons’ and a pair of gloves. Inside the helmet the trainee sees the real image of welding as he moves the torch along the joint. The instructor can also see the real thing, both on the control unit and his computer. The results of the welding can be seen immediately, the software giving scores for Contact Tip to Work Distance (CTWD), Travel Speed and many more. You can replay and navigate back through the weld and see where mistakes were made and where the weld was carried out well.



What Else Can Be Achieved?
As well as simulator exercises students can also study theory and take different courses and exams.
Once the students pass the simulator exercises, they can then move on to practise in the real world.



Should I Buy the Optional Workstand and TIG Pedal?
The workstand is very useful for holding the blue coupon (welding joint) at the correct height and angle, so for most people this will be a must have item. The TIG pedal is recommended to encompass all aspects of this process, but beginners are likely to start off using the torch button.

GMAW stands for Gas Metal Arc Welding – commonly known as MIG (Metal Inert Gas) or MAG (Metal Active Gas). The wire and adjacent areas of the base metal are protected from atmospheric contamination by a stream of shielding gas (CO2, Argon and various other mixes).

GTAW stands for Gas Tungsten Arc Welding – commonly known as TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas). It is the process of arc welding with a non-consumable tungsten electrode. The electric arc is established between the electrode and base metal, while a shielding gas (usually Argon, Helium or a mixture of both) protects the electrode, weld pool and filler material.

FCAW stands for Flux Cored Arc Welding. The process is similar to MIG welding - both processes use continuous wire feeds, and similar equipment. The filler wire is flux cored, removing the requirement for shielding gas.

SMAW stands for Shielded Metal Arc Welding (commonly known as MMA or Manual Metal Arc Welding). In this process the arc is struck between a flux coated metal electrode of a similar material to the base metal, and the work piece. Both the rod and the surface of the work piece melt to create a weld pool. The rod is fed manually into the weld to create a joint.
