Fronius expands the range of functions of its Virtual Welding simulator
The Austrian welding technology specialist Fronius has further developed its Virtual Welding simulation platform. From today, TIG welding processes can also be learned in a virtual environment – without safety risks or the use of consumables. As well as getting to grips with the welding torch, users can also learn how to handle a filler metal. The function package is available for new Virtual Welding systems as standard and can be ordered as an upgrade kit for existing devices.
The new package contains a special TIG welding torch and a separate sensor, which helps teach the user to apply the optimum amount of filler metal. A total of ten training and simulation tasks are available, which can be performed on a variety of different workpieces. Here too Fronius has expanded the range of possibilities: joining the existing models for the execution of fillet welds, single-V butt welds, pipe-pipe and pipe-plate joints and melt runs comes the ability to perform three-millimetre thick square butt welds.
The function package for TIG welding is available for new Virtual Welding systems as standard. Existing models can be upgraded using an upgrade kit from Fronius, which customers can use to quickly and easily install the software themselves. An optional welding helmet with integrated 3D glasses can be ordered for the simulator, which is also available as a compact case for portable use.
