AWS UNVEILS NEW 3M SPEEDGLAS WELDING HELMETS

The new Speedglas auto-darkening welding helmet series 9100XXi from 3M is built on 30 years of expertise.

These new helmets set a new benchmark in welding helmet technology.

The 3M Speedglas 9100XXi series is designed for professional welders who require optimum comfort, trusted protection and ultimate performance.

The new top-of-the-line series features the largest Speedglas welding lens available.

The Speedglas welding lens 9100XXi when combined with the peripheral Speedglas SideWindows gives welders the largest viewing area among auto-darkening welding helmets currently available on the local market, says AWS, the authorized representative for 3M Speedglas in Australia and New Zealand.

The new True-View lens delivers a greater degree of definition and natural colour.

Shades of blue and red as well as contours and edges are more visible due to improved welding lens optics.

The new “Grab-and-Go” motion detector senses movement and instantly activates the welding lens to the welding setting that was last used.

A One-Touch external button activates grind mode. Another quick push reactivates the auto-darkening welding settings.

Just like the programmed preset stations on a radio, the new Set-and-Forget feature allows welders to pre-set their most frequently used welding helmet settings.

By holding down the external button, welders can seamlessly switch between different welding applications without having to re-set the welding helmet.

Each memory mode has an individual setting for dark shade, switching sensitivity and dark-to-light delay.

For example, by holding down the external button, the welder can switch between low-amp TIG and high-amp MIG welding in a matter of seconds.

The new 3M Speedglas Welding Helmet Series 9100XXi is available with flip-up functionality, head protection, hearing protection and with powered or supplied air respiratory protection.
