Four-sensor welding helmet
The new Tweco WeldSkill auto-darkening welding helmet features four sensors for enhanced performance at an affordable price, according to its manufacturer, Thermadyne. It can be used in both weld mode and grind mode and will darken when TIG welding even at 5 amps. The helmet has a large viewing area of 3.86” x 1.69”, weighs 16 oz., uses solar power to eliminate the need to change batteries and offers all these features for an MSRP of $129. When switching from light-to-dark, this WeldSkill helmet darkens in 33 microseconds, one of the fastest reaction times available, the company said. When switching from dark-to-light, users can select from three switching speeds: short (0.25s to 0.35s), medium (0.35s to 0.50s) and long (0.50s to 0.80). Operators in high amperage applications prefer a longer transition time, giving the red-hot weld puddle a chance to cool. Designed to combine safety, strength, flexibility and comfort, the Tweco WeldSkill four-sensor helmet passes every one of the 49 tests required under the ANSI Z87.1-2010 standards. This includes the ability to retain its auto-darkening performance even after high impact by a steel ball.
