guideWELD® LIVE real welding guidance system

The guideWELD LIVE real welding guidance system is a one-of-a-kind instructional tool designed for use in any welding booth. guideWELD LIVE uses a specialized welding helmet and sensors to guide users’ core welding techniques and provide immediate feedback inside the helmet while the use is welding. With real-time guidance in the welding booth, guideWELD LIVE can help instructors improve classroom management and safety, cut costs by increasing student confidence and competency – and most importantly, help students master the positions needed to weld effectively without guidance.
