For beginner and intermediate-level weld students, the Miller AugmentedArc™ Augmented Reality Welding System simulates multiprocess GMAW (MIG), FCAW (flux-cored), SMAW (stick) and GTAW (TIG) welding, blending real-world and computer-generated images into a unique, augmented reality environment.
AugmentedArc helps students complete their training faster and instructors make more effective use of their time.
Students who have never welded before can start working with the system almost immediately and benefit from an experience that not only closely resembles live arc welding, but also delivers immediate, objective, quantitative feedback on their welding techniques. The system offers intuitive, easy-to-understand setup assistance and post-weld feedback to help users quickly develop proper welding techniques. Students can use AugmentedArc to gain process knowledge and valuable experience without being exposed to an actual arc or consuming wire, shielding gas or coupons.
by providing immediate feedback on users’ techniques, AugmentedArc quickly helps correct errors, reinforce proper welding practices and accelerate skill advancement prior to actual live arc welding in a lab.
compared to traditional methods, AugmentedArc significantly reduces the amount of time needed to teach students.
by helping students refine their welding skills in a simulated environment before beginning live arc welding, AugmentedArc delivers a green training solution.
Instructors can use the Teacher Software with an AugmentedArc controller to create a virtual classroom with customized curriculum, quizzes and weld exercises. Students can work at their own pace, and instructors have more time to assist students one-on-one.
User’s performance is scored, graphed and recorded for playback by student or instructor.
Visual graphics aids and guide the user to achieve target parameters.
