Joint commitment to the qualification of future welders

EWM AG, WeldPlus GmbH and Seabery are working closely together to inspire young people to join the welding profession. The three companies have made a joint commitment to the training of skilled welders. One of the aspects that the experts are focusing on is innovative training concepts with the augmented reality welding training solution Soldamatic from Seabery.

In view of the fact that the groundbreaking themes of Industry 4.0 and digitisation are playing an ever more important role in the qualification of welding experts, EWM is cooperating with WeldPlus and the Spanish startup Seabery. Together the three companies form a team of leading experts for simulation-assisted welding training. WeldPlus sells the high-end welding simulation solution Soldamatic from Seabery and develops customised training concepts for using digital media for training purposes. As one of the technology drivers in the welding sector, EWM is making an important contribution together with these two other companies to the future of welding training. "It is a particular mission of ours to inspire young people to join the welding profession and prepare them for their practical work with state-of-the-art training methods. Together with the WeldPlus specialists and the Soldamatic virtual technology, we are making a vital contribution to future-focused qualification of welders and therefore helping our customers to stay competitive," explains Robert Stöckl, EWM Sales Director.

State-of-the-art, practical training

The welding training tool Soldamatic is an augmented reality solution which modernises both theoretical and practical welding training. Unlike conventional training methods, the simulation training solution teaches the trainees the key welding procedures reliably, safely and in an environmentally sustainable way. "With the Soldamatic concept, we are selling state-of-the-art AR technology for practical training, based on integrated DVS-based learning material. With this concept, we are offering our customers a globally unique solution for customised, digitally based, future-focused qualification of their skilled specialists," explains Anke Richter, Managing Director of WeldPlus GmbH. The cooperation is to continue at this year's Schweissen & Schneiden. The welding training solution fits perfectly with the EWM motto "Welding 4.0". The three companies are also organising joint symposia and information events on the theme of "Future welder qualification".p
