Welding in the dark side

Written by: Paul Gay | Published:

Designers who are not just involved in the materials technology around welding, but also like a bit of hands on practice, might be interested in a new welding helmet from ESAB Welding & Cutting Products. The Aristo Tech HD is an auto-darkening welding helmet with an optical class of 1/1/1/1, which indicates the highest optical performance possible according to the EN 379 Standard.

The Aristo Tech HD features an advanced LCD lens with a 100 x 62 mm viewing area – 12 mm larger than the previous lens – for wider visibility and better spatial awareness. ESAB's new X-TIG mode provides superior performance when TIG welding down to 5 amps.

In the X-TIG mode, the helmet uses electromagnetic arc sensors that automatically react to the magnetic field of the arc. This eliminates interference from sunlight or other electrical/electronic equipment, as well as ensures that the helmet darkens when the sensors are blocked, such as when welding pipe or in awkward positions.
