The new Tweco WeldSkill auto-darkening welding helmet features four
sensors for enhanced performance at an affordable price. It can be used
in both weld mode and grind mode and will darken when TIG welding even
at five amps. The helmet has a large viewing area of 3.86 by 1.69
inches, weighs 16 ounces, and uses solar power to reduce the need to
change batteries.

When switching from light to dark, this helmet darkens in 33
microseconds. By way of comparison, a human eye blink takes 3/10 to
4/10 of a second. When switching from dark to light, users can
select from three switching speeds: short (0.25 to 0.35 seconds), medium
(0.35 to 0.50 seconds) and long (0.50 to 0.80 seconds). Operators in high-amperage
applications prefer a longer transition time, giving the red-hot weld
puddle a chance to cool.

The new helmet comes in four popular styles: Carbon Fiber, Patriot
Eagle, Chopper Rider or Skull and Fire.

 

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.

Tweco placed the sensitivity and delay knobs on the outside of the
helmet shell so that operators can make adjustments while welding. When
setting the helmet down, a recessed lens design prevents the faceplate
from touching the table, protecting it from scratches.
