Columbus, Ohio (Manufacturing.net) — RealWeld Systems, Inc., today announced that its RealWeld Trainer system now supports real-time audio coaching during both practice and live training session. The system digitally captures motions and objectively scores a trainee’s welding technique while performing real welds with the arc on, or practice welds with the arc off. The new system will allow instructors to configure the systems to give students commands from “Alli,” a voice provided by RealWeld, or commands of their own uploaded to the system. Either way, the system provides real-time audio feedback to their success with the welding system. This comes in addition to visual analysis and the “game-ified” scoring already provided.
The company says the system can be used to improve the screening of welders prior to being hired, assess certification levels or clone the technique of master welders into documented procedures.
Bill Forquer, Launch CEO of RealWeld Systems, said in a statement: “We’ve met amazing welding instructors across the country this last year. They love the idea that our RealWeld Trainer can coach their trainees just like a GPS device, using the instructor’s own voice as if they were standing over the shoulder. Our early adopters — who are key in driving our development roadmap — agree, and we’re excited to begin testing this new feature with them.”
Ed Abbott, General Organizer, International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers, added: “There are three welder training methods: audio, visual and hands-on. I like the RealWeld Trainer because it combines all these learning methods while actually welding live.”
