For nine years now a team of the Research & Design Lab of the FH JOANNEUM has developed a welding simulation system in cooperation with Fronius International GmbH, the European market leader in the field of innovational welding technology.
This system is used for training welders to acquire necessary skills with the help of a pedagogical learning system without any danger. It supports the MIG/MAG and the electrode welding technique. Recent developments mainly improved the quality of the simulation and the screen design.
At the international fair SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN 2008 in Essen/Germany the first version of the simulation system was presented to an international audience. The system currently supports fifteen different languages and at the moment approximately 350 pieces of the system were sold all over the world.
