Master the tools of the future



The American Welding Society predicts a job gap of 336,000 new welding professionals needed by 2026, and in states like Nebraska that need is being felt more than ever. Welding Automation Cells help bridge that gap, revolutionizing a welder's workflow while boosting consistency, predictability, and worker satisfaction. 

Traditionally thought of as cost-prohibitive and requiring complex safety measures, NIS is proud to represent Vectis Automation's streamlined collaborative robot welding cells. Classes are offered regularly, where students are able to master the setup, configuration, and fundamental principles of Collaborative Robotic Welding. Learn MIG concepts, fixturing best practices, and common troubleshooting techniques for automating one of the region's most in-demand skillsets.
