Lincoln Electric announced it has launched the next generation in professional auto darkening welding helmets. The new Viking 2450 and 3350 Series welding helmets feature 4C optics, headgear to improve comfort and a low-profile external grind button to increase productivity.
The new X6 headgear contours to the operator’s head to evenly distribute weight across six key contact points. This improves balance, eliminates pressure points and provides a personalized fit for maximum comfort, the company says. The addition of the new external grind button allows operators to quickly switch between weld and grind mode without having to remove their helmet or gloves.
The 2450 and 3350 Series helmets feature Lincoln Electric’s auto-darkening lens. The exclusive liquid crystal lens offers a number of features, including 4C lens technology, 1/1/1/1 optical clarity and 12.5 and 9.3 sq.-in. viewing area. The company says these features broaden the color range and hues that can be seen in both light and dark states. This eliminates imperfections and color saturation to create the clearest view of the base material, arc and puddle while reducing eyestrain.
Both models are backed by a three-year warranty. Viking 2450 and 3350 Series welding helmets are available in 24 different styles, the company says.
