Welding is one of the basic tasks required in various industries as well as manufacturing. The purpose of this study is to develop a haptic torch to create an environment similar to actual welding in order to use a welding simulator as a training tool. In order to develop a torch with a haptic technology, we created a torch using a 3D printer and reduced the error by increasing the position accuracy using the Polhemus simulation tool. Using a welding simulator with a haptic torch capable of controlling the intensity of a vibration motor, we found that it was very similar to actual welding.
