VIDEO: Battling the Skills Gap with New Technology

At FABTECH 2012 in Las Vegas, we spoke with Chris Mapes, COO of Lincoln Electric, and Deanna Postlethwaite, manager of the company’s Virtual Reality business, about the use of technology to battle the skills gap in their particular sector of manufacturing. Lincoln Electric has complemented its VRTEX mobile virtual reality arc welding training system with a new mobile version, announced at FABTECH.

In these video interviews, we find out about how the game-like aspect of VRTEX gets kids excited about manufacturing and how advanced technology helps train adults for skilled work more quickly and cost effectively.
