WeldConnect: The App for Tracking Down a Solution. The Fronius app WeldConnect helps users to determine the appropriate welding parameters for their particular manual welding application.
Welducation Basic App: Your Pocket Welding Trainer. Your Pocket Welding Trainer Fronius’ new Welducation Basic App supports virtual learning in an exciting and entertaining way: It has a game function which enables users to experience welding interactively and features a quiz that conveys useful information on the joining process.
The user simply enters the power source being used and the welding process, material thickness, welding speed and weld seam geometry as well as the base material, filler metal and shielding gas. Data can be entered either manually or by scanning the QR codes on the materials using a smartphone. WeldConnect uses this data to quickly and accurately calculate the deposition rate and the energy input, and suggests the appropriate welding solution.
There is no longer any need to access the power source or work out the correct parameters. The results can be stored, transferred wirelessly to the power source in the form of a job, or shared with other Smartphones. The app is simple to use, and guides users through the sequence of operations, allowing them to configure suitable welding solutions incredibly quickly.
In the quiz, users choose their answer from four options and are told immediately whether they were correct or not. This is a fun way to learn the theoretical principles. To complete a round of the game, users must answer ten questions. The scores are then shown in order of ranking.An international high score ranking allows users to compare themselves with all app users worldwide.
Those who prefer to learn through practice can gain experience in the game app with virtual welding. The touchscreen becomes a workpiece and your finger becomes a welding torch. There are different levels to the game – the higher the level, the more difficult the welding task. Users can weld melt runs or fillet and butt welds, for example. The aim is to score as many points as possible through consistent and accurately welded seams.
