Pocket Welding Trainer

With the Welducation Basic App's quiz, users pick up basic welding knowledge through play.

Users guide the welding torch with their finger and thereby get a feeling for the right welding torch position and speed.

The virtual trainer uses color signals to show if the welding speed and torch position are correct.

After welding, users can inspect the finished seam and the app rates the seam with a point score.

"At last there is a fun way for welders to build up their know-how. Welducation Basic makes the demanding task of memorizing theoretical content a thing of the past. The app for smartphone and tablet conveys information on welding through play. In the quiz, users choose their answer from four options and are told immediately whether they were correct or not, making this a fun way to learn the theoretical principles," said a Fronius spokesperson. To complete a round of the game, users must answer 10 questions. The scores are then shown in order of ranking. An international high score ranking allows users to compare themselves with all app users worldwide.

Virtual Welding on Smartphone or Tablet

Those who prefer to learn through practice rather than theory can gain experience in the game app with virtual welding. The touchscreen becomes a workpiece and a finger becomes a welding torch. There are different levels to the game. The higher the level, the more difficult the welding task. For example, users can weld melt runs or fillet and butt welds. The virtual trainer supports the player by showing them the ideal welding speed and position using color signals. The aim is to score as many points as possible through consistent and accurately welded seams. Users can also save their points from the game in the online rankings. The app is available for iOS users in the App Store while Android users can download the app from Google Play.
