Arc+ NG Welding Simulator


The Arc+ welding simulator is a training tool that provides lifelike virtual welding practice. Its movement detection system breaks down users’ manual dexterity parameters and trains all welding positions without any need for calibration. Its graphic interface and use of real welding torches account for its unequaled realism.

Why Use Arc+

Train Better, Faster, Cheaper, Safer & Greener


  • Train Better
  • Rerun past welding exercises for instructors’ additional feedback.
  • Monitor trainees’ progress.
  • Share individual feedback with entire groups
  • Recruit from a tech-savvy generation more easily
  • Train Faster
  • Eliminate setup time
  • Maximize the time on arc for each trainee
  • Provide trainees with instant virtual coaching
  • Train Cheaper

An average trainee practices 60 welding exercises per week for 40 training weeks. Each exercise costs approximately $2. Assuming we transition 20% of the training on simulators for a group of 20 trainees, annual savings add up to $19,200.

  • Train Safer & Greener
  • Provide risk-free welds to beginners.
  • Reduce carbon emissions, metal waste and consumption of gas and energy
