Marion Body Works, Inc. continues to provide options that enhance employee knowledge and skill sets. With the recent purchase of an AugmentedArc and LiveArc from Miller Electric, Marion is pursuing avenues in cutting edge technologies for their welders and prospective employees. From showcasing what welding is like to testing skill levels, both machines provide an experience similar to what one would face in real-life as a welder.
Taking out the element of human error when testing skill level, each machine provides accurate real-time data to point out areas for improvement and level of mastery among the different settings.
The AugmentedArc is perfect for those just getting into welding, newly out of college, or wanting to learn what it might be like as a welder. The LiveArc provides users with a realistic environment versus augmented being that they can see and experience welding in action or as a test tool.
Marion Body Works continues to invest in current and future employees through on-sight training in the Center of Excellence where each of the new simulators will be housed for continual use throughout the year by welders taking their 6-month qualification testing, new employee training, and prospective high school tours.
