BMW Group Werk Regensburg

Automotive Sector

Accurate, sustainable, safe training relies on “virtual welding – based on augmented reality”.

Soldamatic has been part of Regensburg’s vocational training program since 2021. Instructions and tips are displayed during the welding process; detailed analyses of the weld seam are possible afterwards. In addition to qualitative progress, the digitization project also contributes to the “green factory”: Compared to conventional learning welding, less metal scrap is produced. Electricity and material consumption are reduced. The significantly lower risk of injury is also among the positive effects. Only when sufficient basic knowledge has been acquired in the course of virtual welding do the trainees switch to the “real” welding machine.
