Wide world of welding
Honeywell Safety Products' Fibre-Metal brand has launched the new Tigerhood Futura XXL welding helmet. The helmet delivers the largest wide-view, distortion-free auto darkening filter (ADF) lens with the highest quality optics available in the U.S. and Canada, the company said. With proprietary ADC (angular dependency compensation) Plus ADF technology and the highest optical rating of any wide-view format ADF welding helmet, this new model has been designed to improve the safety and productivity of industrial welders through its clarity and comfort. Engineered to perform across the spectrum of electro-arc welding processes, the Tigerhood Futura XXL is ideally suited for those working in the shipbuilding, heavy fabrication, mining, oil and gas, and petrochemical industries. With a total viewing area measuring 10.2 square inches, the XXL model provides a 40-per-cent larger viewing area than standard auto darkening filters. ADC technology delivers uniform shading and distortion-free vision across the entire viewing area, even peripherally. As a result, welders can see clearly and work at awkward angles more easily. Decreased eye fatigue allows welders to safely perform better welds for a longer period of time. A 1/1/1/1 DIN rating — the highest optical quality rating achieved by any ADF lens — maximizes weld quality and productivity, and is crucial for welder comfort. The helmet’s Selectable Shade 9-13 delivers a versatile shade range that meets the demands of most standard welding operations, the company said.
