Represented by AWS Pty Ltd www.awsi.com.au, the new Speedglas auto-darkening welding helmet series 9100XXi from 3M is built on 30 years of expertise and sets 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 amongst auto-darkening welding helmets currently available on the Australian & New Zealand market at the time of printing.
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 pre-set 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. Featuring Speedglas’ legendary comfort and performance and the new True-View, Grab-and-Go, One-Touch and Set-and-Forget features, the Speedglas Welding Helmet Series 9100XXi is in a class of its own.
