Welding Helmets

Sight for Sore Eyes

Clearly, the right auto-darkening helmet boosts productivity and quality. Here's how optical clarity defines helmet performance by providing users with vital eye protection and the ability to fully see the work . . . and that’s when work is done best.

Improving Welder Safety and Comfort with New Head Protection Technologies

A PAPR is a powered air purifying respirator paired with a welding helmet that uses a blower to pass ambient air through a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter to remove contaminants and supply purified air in a sealed welding helmet. This removes at least 99.97 percent of airborne particles 0.3 micrometers in diameter.
Recent technology advancements in welding helmets not only help to protect welders from lost-time or work-related injury, but they increase productivity by increasing comfort levels. Regardless of the type of head protection a welder chooses, it is critical to make sure that the helmet, PAPR or other such personal protective equipment (PPE) is properly suited for the welding application at hand and also provides the appropriate level of protection.

Versatile TIG and Stick Welding

The new Dynasty 210 welder from Miller Electric uses Auto-Line power management technology that allows the machine to connect to almost any type of available input power and produce a steady, high quality arc. Operators can work safer and faster in more places, up to 300 ft away from the power source with the hand control, while maintaining consistently high-quality welds. Eliminating cord tangles or failures increases time, saves money, and helps improve overall weld quality at the weld joint.
The new Dynasty 210 and Maxstar 210 welders from Miller Electric deliver up to 210 amps of output power, exceptional TIG and stick performance in easy-to-use, versatile, portable packages that allow for upgrade flexibility.

Auto-Darkening Filter Welding Helmet

For superior visibility and advanced color recognition, the Jackson Safety* TrueSight II Auto-Darkening Filter (ADF) Welding Helmet from Kimberly-Clark Professional delivers best-in-class optical clarity for clear views from various angles that reduce eye fatigue and the need to move, adjust and refocus.
The new Jackson Safety TrueSight II Auto-Darkening Filter Welding Helmet from Kimberly-Clark Professional delivers best-in-class optical clarity for enhanced precision and productivity while delivering superior visibility and advanced color recognition.

Weld More Comfortably and Efficiently in Demanding Environments

To protect welders better and enable them to perform more efficiently with greater precision, the e684 helmet from Optrel uses exclusive Adaptive Shade Autopilot technology to automatically adjust the auto-darkening filter to the appropriate shade level between 5 and 13 as the operator welds. As the intensity of the arc changes, the shade level of the ADF changes hands-free and in high definition viewing.
Optrel marries the e684 helmet with advanced auto-darkening filter lens technology and optics to the innovative, ergonomically designed e3000 powered air purifying respiratory system.
