Designed for use in all welding applications, ESAB's new Warrior Tech welding 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. Intended to replace the previous Origo-Tech helmets, the new models offer several advantages but are priced the same.
Critical for any welder is the performance of the lens, and with the Warrior Tech, four welding arc sensors provide high response levels and wider a sensory coverage than many alternative helmets of this type. It has a large viewing area of 98mm x 48mm, which, being wider than the normal field of vision, increases spatial awareness. It also features shade adjustment between DIN9 and DIN13 with its automatic shade darkening filter (ADF) lens. This lens gives the welder optimal viewing clarity and excellent optical quality.
ESAB's new helmet offers optimal performance for most fabrication and out-of-position welding. Its sensitivity control is a useful adaptable feature when welding with low currents, such as when TIG welding, and ensures a better reaction to darker arc light.
The delay control enables the welder to set how long the lens stays dark after the welding arc stops; a short delay helps to get the job done faster during tack welding, while a longer delay is useful for high-amperage welding. The 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 the field of vision. For enhanced comfort, the angled front pad sits flat on the forehead to reduce frontal lobe pressure. With five-point rake adjustment, the helmet can be positioned at five different angles. The shell has B grade impact safety rating.
Available in yellow or black, the Warrior Tech welding helmet is available with various options and extras. For more information go to www.esab.co.uk.
