Manual welding skills are learned by observation and practice. It is difficult for more than a handful of students to take in the details of an instructor’s welding demonstration, unless a camera is used to display a live, magnified view of the weld zone. The MeltView PACT and APEX2 are unobtrusive and flexible tools that offer clear, in-focus, magnified views of the weld zone during both demonstration and student practice.

Educators consistently find that by using the PACT or APEX2, they can more effectively teach their students how to read the arc and weld puddle. The PACT is a robust, cost-effective solution for live demonstration in the lab or field, while the APEX2 is a turnkey system used by schools for visualizing and recording GMAW, FCAW, GTAW and SMAW.


A smaller version of the MeltView DART camera, the MeltView PACT has integrated LEDs and a replaceable spatter guard for applications when cooling isn’t required.



The MeltView APEX2 is a one-of-a-kind educational tool for safe and effective demonstration of arc welding. Our turn-key system enables the instructor to show students how to clearly read the arc



Because welding is a dynamic process that occurs at speeds far greater than the human eye can perceive, sometimes high speed imaging is the key to welding success.
