The purpose of this Bulletin_87 is to provide links to Online Sources.
Virtual Welding Training is provided by suitable simulators recreating virtual representations of actual welding operations.
Although the subjective reaction of trainees is not exactly equivalent to that generated in a physical environment, it is sufficiently similar and capable of impressing realistic perceptions of interaction.
The main advantages are saving of needless testing materials and the total absence of physical dangers.
Therefore economic additional practice can be easily obtained by trainees who will be more and better prepared to certification exams.
The subject of this Bulletin_87 was introduced in an article published (2) in issue No.93 of Practical Welding Letter for May 2011.
A few commercial realizations of practical welding simulators are available in the market.
It is quite probable that each of them will enjoy incremental improvements, while the cost to the schools will decrease in time.
The educational institutions offering virtual training may be able to enjoy increased demand.
Specializations may also appear within certain systems to adapt them to requirements of definite industries.
As long as welders jobs need to be fulfilled by new workers, there will be a continuing demand of training, to be partially covered by simulators.
The Online Resources listed in this Bulletin_87 offer a wide range of publications presenting information on the above matters.
PWL#119B Bulletin_87 - Resouces on Virtual Reality Welding Training, Low Cost Training Systems, Mobile Schools, Integrated instruction, computer based simulators, Commercial realizations, available systems, public demonstrations, hands-on feeling, Education and Research, presentations, abstracts, Virtual reality simulation and much more...
