Live Arc System

Welding Performance Management System

The reality-based recruiting, screening, training, and re-qualification solution for industrial, manufacturing and educational markets. While utilizing a live arc, the intuitive system promotes user independence and provides objective, quantitative feedback on key performance parameters. Independent usage accelerates personal development. Accelerated training times put trainees in production lines faster while shorter educational periods allow trainees to focus on additional learning opportunities.
