Thermadyne's Tweco WeldSkill auto-darkening welding helmet darkens in 33 microseconds
Thermadyne's Tweco WeldSkill auto-darkening welding helmet features four sensors. It is designed to be used in both weld mode and grind mode, and will darken when TIG welding even at 5 amps. The helmet has a viewing area of 3.86 in. x 1.69 in., weighs 16 oz. and uses solar power.
When switching from light to dark, the WeldSkill helmet is engineered to darken in 33 microseconds. 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).
The WeldSkill four-sensor helmet meets ANSI Z87.1-2010 standards. 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.
