New Sim Trainer for Industrial Painting

More items for Coating Application

Virtual I-beams, bridge environments, test panels and even a moving conveyor line are among the simulations offered in a new paint training simulator geared toward industrial coatings application.

VRSim’s new SimSpray Industrial “is designed to expose the student to a broader range of industrial coating processes and production scenarios” than the company’s original SimSpray equipment, which debuted earlier this year, says VRSim president and CEO Matthew Wallace.

SimSpray Industrial adds new painting simulations, including a moving conveyor line, to the original SimSpray, shown here.

‘Real-World Feel’

The industrial simulation shows the differences in painting with air-assisted airless and airless processes, Wallace says.

“There is also a more real-world feel of the system, which includes environments such as bridge corners,” he said. The system provides “cutting-edge practical simulations to teach coatings applications.”

Both the original and new systems include a variety of simulated project pieces and paint environments, but SimSpray Industrial offers a wider selection of projects, including I-Beams, a bridge section, a panel with junction box, and an ASTM test panel. New environments include a moving conveyor line, military booth and a bridge.
 
Selected Features

Both SimSpray versions have an analysis and feedback system that includes scoring, graphing, review data and visuals to create a realistic painting experience. Trainees can see if their coverage is inadequate or shows runs, dry spray, orange peel or other defects.

Visual cues for stand-off distance, angle and speed help hone spray painting techniques and build muscle memory to improve body positioning, according to the manufacturer. Instructors can set up multi-coat projects with different coating types and can set mil thickness, speed and other parameters for each coat.

In addition, SimSpray Industrial features improved cues for better placement on the project piece. The cues disappear when using the proper technique.

“We are particularly excited to show beginning students how conveyor-based painting works,” said Wallace.

Turnkey System

VRSim calls both SimSpray systems a cost-effective, turnkey, mobile training appliance designed to teach the basic fundamentals of spray painting and coating. No spray booth or paint is needed, so trainees can practice in an open, group classroom environment.

VRSim, based in East Hartford, creates virtual reality training systems designed to enhance basic skills training for education and research groups, industrial trades, and military and defense organizations.
