ESAB Welding & Cutting Products now offers the new Warrior™ Tech 9-13 Auto-Darkening welding helmet as part of its comprehensive line of personal protection equipment. Designed for use in all welding applications, ESAB’s new Warrior Tech helmet meets the needs of welding professionals requiring a high specification, ergonomically designed, lightweight helmet that provides protection from dangerous UV/IR radiation, heat, and spatter.
Critical for any welder is the performance of the lens and with the Warrior Tech, four welding arc sensors provide high response levels and a wider sensory coverage than many alternative helmets of this type.
ESAB’s new Warrior Tech helmet has a large viewing area of 3.85 in. x 1.88 in. (98 mm x 48 mm) and this wider than normal field of vision increases spatial awareness.
It features shade adjustment between DIN 9 and DIN 13 with its automatic shade darkening filter (ADF) lens and optical class 1/2/1/2. This lens also gives the welder optimal viewing clarity and excellent optical quality.
The helmet offers optimal performance for most fabrication and out-of-position welding. Its sensitivity control is a useful, adaptable feature when welding with low amperages, such as GTAW applications, and ensures a better reaction to darker arc light.
The delay control allows the welder to set how long the lens stays dark after the welding arc stops. A short delay will help to get the job done faster during tack welding, while a longer delay is useful for high amperage welding. Delay and sensitivity can be adjusted from the inside.
Ergonomically designed for high operator comfort, the helmet’s headband is fully adjustable over the head and there are three longitudinal adjustments to increase field of vision. For enhanced comfort, the angled front pad sits flat on the forehead to reduce frontal lobe pressure.
