Rockford Public Library unveils virtual welding lab

People who are interested in welding can now get a hands-on experience. The Rockford Public Library has a new virtual welding system that allows users to experience what it’s like to weld. Users can get an idea of the many physical aspects of welding with the use of a model welding nozzle and virtual work piece. The library hopes the new technology will improve the workforce in the Rockford area. Anyone interested in trying the new virtual reality welding can stop by any time at the downtown library branch in the Maker Lab.
