Welding Simulator
guide WELD® VR welding simulator

The guideWELD® VR welding simulator is a virtual reality welding simulator that enables students to rapidly refine basic welding skills, learn proper welding technique and explore welding career paths in a safe, virtual environment, without the need for consumables like metal and gas.

guideWELD® LIVE real welding guidance system

The guideWELD® LIVE real welding guidance system is a live welding training and education tool that gives students instant feedback on core welding techniques during live, arc-on welding. This corrective feedback helps participants transfer skills learned in the classroom and hone the core work angle, travel angle and speed techniques and positioning needed to weld effectively without guidance.

RealCareer™ Weld Defects Kit

Teach welding students how to identify and correct common weld defects with the RealCareer™ Weld Defects Kit. This portable, lightweight kit contains 13 plastic models, 12 of which depict the most common defects that can occur when welding and one that depicts a quality weld. Use this engaging, hands-on teaching tool and curriculum to help your students understand how weld defects occur and how to address them by correcting both their machine and their technique.

RealCareer™ Bend Tester

How do you conduct a bend test? How do you qualify a bend-tested weld? Why is such knowledge important to potential employers? Answer these questions and more with the RealCareer™ Bend Tester and curriculum. Designed with education in mind, this 8-ton hydraulic, manual-guided bend test fixture allows educators to conduct destructive weld testing in a classroom or welding lab. Comprehensive curriculum, classroom posters and supporting materials are included.
