With an expanding educational portfolio, US-based welding equipment manufacturer Lincoln Electric has launched a new education website.

The new site provides students, educators, corporate trainers and design engineers with a common interface and access to welding education information and products.

Lincoln’s Business Manager, Jason Scales, said the new site is designed to help get word out about the US-based company’s far-reaching commitment to welding education. He continued, “No one offers a more comprehensive welding education solution for the welding educator, student or those seeking professional development in this field.”

With the new site, users will be able to more easily locate the education assets they need to enhance their career or train the next generation of welders. Users can also browse products designed specifically for welding education including virtual reality welding simulators, welding training systems, robotic welding training systems, CNC plasma cutting systems, welding booths and student apparel, helmets and more.

Those seeking to advance their welding career can preview the new Lincoln Electric Welding Technology & Training Center, scheduled to begin operations in late 2017. The school will house nearly 200 welding booths and expanded facilities for professional development – both for school instructors and industrial trainers, as well as welding design engineers.

“The demands on welders and welding educators are changing as the industry and technology change. We know because Lincoln Electric works with every sector of the welding industry to enhance productivity and quality while driving down costs,” Scales adds, “We take that knowledge and transfer it into curriculum, products and services to help educators prepare the next generation of welders right now.”
