Paper Title:
Investigation on the Simulation System of GTAW Operation Based on Virtual Reality Technology
  Abstract

Gas shield Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) is an important process method in material processing. Welding quality is vital for the product quality. It is an important way to improve the quality of product by raising the personal capability and handling technique of the welder. In this investigation, because of the deficiency in classic welding training scheme, some new technology were introduced into classic welding training field to improve the efficiency of welding training and reduce training cost. A computer simulation system that can be used to train primary welders was developed combined with three-dimensional stereoscopic vision and API interface of OpenGL, virtual reality is the kernel technology. In this system, welders were trained not in the real operating environment but in the virtual environment where has experience personally effect that simulated by computer. There is unnecessary with welding material and welding energy in virtual environment simulated by computer. It has highly automatic and intelligent and lower required to welding teachers. It is healthy to welder because that intensive arc and harmful dust are disappeared in virtual environment. It is a lower cost and high efficiency method by use of virtual training system to training new welder.
