Training new welders faster
Many welding environments are changing as the industry evolves. Furthermore, improving productivity and getting new welders up to speed are big issues for many operations. How much time does your operation spend on welder training?
When welders are inexperienced or not properly trained, it can result in slower production, rework, more scrap and other costs. While proper training is important, is there a way for manufacturers to reduce the time spent on it?
Tips for welder training:
Tip 1: Get help from new technologies
Machines that are difficult to set up and adjust usually require additional training. However, some of today’s welding power sources remove complexity and are designed to make setup and parameter selection easy. With preset parameters and other intuitive setup options, it’s easier and faster for welders of all skill levels to choose optimal parameters for producing quality welds. One such example is EZ-Set technology. Available on Miller® Deltaweld® systems, this technology simplifies parameter setup based on material thickness. This removes complexity and reducing welder training time.
