Miller's auto-darkening welding helmet combines function and design
Miller Electric Mfg. Co. introduces the Luckys Speed Shop design to its Elite and Digital Elite series of auto-darkening welding helmets. The graphic design comes in a gloss-black finish and features cross-bone pistons, a flying eyeball and a spider web. Luckys Speed Shop is inscribed on a ribbon entwined in barbed wire behind a grinning skull with a top hat. The Elite and Digital Elite series helmets are for professionals and hobbyists who frequently Stick, MIG, TIG and plasma cut.
Millers Elite series of helmets features four independent arc sensors that respond in 1/20,000 of a second and comes standard with an auto-on/auto-off and a grind mode. Weighing 18 ounces, the Elite helmets are lightweight and comfortable and come complete with five outside and two inside replacement cover lenses, a fatigue-reducing cushion and helmet bag.
The Digital Elite series was designed for professional welders demanding control and flexibility. The helmets feature the precision of a digital control, allowing users to set and store their shade, sensitivity and delay preferences for various applications: welding shades 8-13, cutting shades 5-8, grinding shade 3 and an X-Mode shades 8-13. The X-Mode provides full protection when an arc is present, but the sensors are obscured. The X-Mode eliminates interference from sunlight and out-of-position welding angles, and it functions at low-amperage TIG welding (5 amps and below).
