From classroom to laboratory.
From laboratory to career.

Miller welding education systems help weld students build skills and confidence, keeping them fully engaged and delivering immediate feedback. Using the Miller® AugmentedArc™ augmented reality welding system in the classroom, beginner and intermediate-level students can experience the most realistic multiprocess welding simulation available — and then seamlessly transition to the Miller® LiveArc™ welding performance management system in the laboratory for the industry’s most complete live arc experience. When it’s time to interview for that first job — or maintain qualifications in an existing job — LiveArc can evaluate candidates and employees, too. 

You and Miller: Together, we build careers.

The best tools build the best weld operators

Miller welding education systems deliver exceptional benefits:

 Optimize instructor efficiency 

 Deliver real-time feedback

 Reduce overall training time

 Assess weld operator skills and performance

 Minimize material cost

 Enhance job candidate recruiting and screening

 Build a larger, more-skilled workforce


The industry’s most realistic welding simulation system

The AugmentedArc system uses augmented reality technology to improve the efficiency and economy of classroom education for beginner and intermediate-level students. Users wear a specially designed helmet that shows them images of the real world, augmented with computer-generated images of metal workpieces, weld arcs and weld beads. The result is a simulation that closely resembles live-arc welding — without using an actual arc or consuming wire, shielding gas or coupons.


The industry’s most complete live arc welding training system

Ideal for lab training, the Miller LiveArc welding performance management system provides both a simulation/pre-weld setup mode as well as a live-arc training mode, allowing the user to gain experience and build techniques in pre-weld exercises before seamlessly transitioning into real welding on GMAW, FCAW and SMAW processes.

WE BUILD Careers

Like his father before him, Doug Tennant has a passion for teaching students how to weld. Since hands on attention at each student workstation is nearly impossible, a system for additional guidance is a big advantage. By using LiveArc as an extra hand in the lab, Doug’s students are able to learn the key essentials required to become professional weld operators. With immediate feedback to improve performance, Miller-designed assignments and skill improvement recordings, LiveArc allows welding students to receive faster and more affordable training.

Safe, Efficient Set Up of the Miller LiveArc Reality-Based Training System

The LiveArc™ reality-based welding training system combines simulation and live arc welding modes to provide fast, accurate and cost effective training to students and welding operators. Advanced motion-tracking technology offers critical and immediate feedback to enhance training and develop welding skills. To safely and efficiently set up the LiveArc system — from the shipping crate to assignment selection and training modes — follow the step-by-step guidelines from Miller.

LiveArc System Helps Company Recruit, Train Employees to Produce Quality Welds

ALMACO chose to implement the LiveArc™ welding performance management system into its operations as a training tool to reduce weld defects and to make sure employees establish the fundamental skills they need to produce quality welds and quality parts. The company is also implementing the LiveArc system into its hiring process to evaluate the skill sets of prospective employees, ensuring ALMACO has the strongest workforce to meet its customers’ demands for quality. The immediate feedback from the system — in both the simulation and live arc mode — and the intuitive interface has further helped to reduce training time.
