MIMBUS announce its new partership with zSpace for the training of the welding motion

MIMBUS is really proud to announce its partnership with zSpace for the training of the welding motion on WAVE NG.

WAVE NG has been created after an AFPA engineer thought the video games recreational approach that captured the players gesture could be implemented in the vocational training. The aim was to find a way to train welders better and faster. In partnership with CS group, AFPA launched the WAVE project, jointly funded by the European Commission. CS WAVE was officially released in March 2004. Drawing on its 10 years’ experience gained in this field, DIGINEXT -CS group subsidiary- decided to update its offer and assigned the product marketing to MIMBUS. By joint agreement, they created WAVE NG, a major revision of CS WAVE more effective and designed to follow the vocational training development.

Today, vocational training suffers of a negative image. Young people prefer to go to the university rather than becoming a welder. This desinterest has caused the loss of skilled labors. Regarding welding, there are 100,000 welders missing today, and this figure will rise to 300,000 by 2030. We need to value and attract people to that this job.

Combining WAVE NG with zSpace makes the training even more attractive and realistic thanks to the multisensory experience of zSpace. It offers the students hands-on training with MAG and MMA procedures. Learners will be able to weld from multiple angles and develop concentration, precision and dexterity, without any risk of injury or equipment breakage.

zSpace, Inc. is a leading-edge technology provider that delivers a new way of learning with its flagship product, zSpace.

Focused on the learning market, specifically science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, medical instruction, corporate training and research, zSpace inspires and accelerates understanding through immersive exploration.
