RealWeld Systems' patent-pending RealWeld Trainer™ system now supports real-time audio coaching during both live and practice training sessions. This enhancement will be demonstrated publicly for the first time on National Manufacturing Day, October 4, 2013, at EWI in Columbus, Ohio.
The RealWeld Trainer™ is the only welding training solution on the market designed for a welding booth and used under the hood with a live arc or for practice welding with the arc off. With the new voice enhancement, instructors will be able to configure their RealWeld Trainer™ systems to give students commands from “Alli,” an instructor voice provided by RealWeld, or they can record and upload their own voices to provide instruction to their students. Either way, trainees have the benefit of real-time audio feedback in addition to visual analysis and gamified scoring already provided.
“There are three welder training methods – audio, visual, and hands-on,” said Ed Abbott, General Organizer, International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers. “I like the RealWeld Trainer because it combines all these learning methods while actually welding live.”
RealWeld Trainer can be used to improve the screening of welders prior to being hired, assess skill certification levels, and clone the technique of master welders into documented welding procedures. It is capable of being integrated into community college and labor union curricula, and can effectively narrow the skill gap of graduates being fully productive for their employer.
