Description

Welding is a relatively new method to join metals employed in areas like building ships, spacecraft, planes, automobiles, etc. However, the process is no walk in the park and there are lots of dangers associated with it like burns, shocks, flying debris, harmful gases, etc. Choosing the right protective equipment saves your skin and eyes from damage as well as the vision harming UV Rays. As a result, there is a wide range of welding helmets available. One particular stand out is the Lincoln Electric Viking 3350. In this article, we will be analyzing the features of the Viking 3350 in detail.

Optical Clarity

Better optical clarity implies better focus with less distortion and no clarity issues as well as comfort and less fatigue. The grade is from one to three, one being the highest and three being the lowest. In this respect, the Viking 3350 scores a perfect 1/1/1/1 which signifies a near-perfect clarity. The four categories are Optical Class, Diffusion of Light Class, Variations in Luminous Transmittance and Angle Dependence of Luminous Transmittance Class. In terms of optical clarity, this helmet is at the very top.

Shade Settings

Shade basically means the density of the darkening shield with 1 being crystal clear and 10  being completely dark unless focused on light. Sensitivity means the degree of light required to engage the shade. The sensitivity settings can be adjusted from DIN5 to DIN13 helping you to work in different kinds of environments with the utmost ease. Besides, four arc sensors are included which can be used to detect flash at a speed nearly 1/25000 second. This ensures that the helmet is quite responsive and make sure you won’t get flashed.

4C Lens Technology

If you are wondering what the four C’s stand for, they are-Clarity, Color, Carat, and Cut. Carats implies the light-weight nature of the lens. The cut means at any angle you can do the work comfortably. This technology not only helps us to view better, but it also allows us to see more. The viewing area is more, thus giving you a full picture of what is happening. The technology also aids in lowering eye-strain while at the same time reducing the green-tinted glow. Better vision gives better welds, thus improving the productivity of the welder.

Battery Life

Battery Life is an important factor while choosing the Best Welding Helmet. Imagine a scenario that the battery died during the welding. The outcome is not likely to be a good one. Hence, it is imperative to choose Helmets with good Battery Life and the Viking 3350 is quipped with solar rechargeable batteries. All you need to do is to leave the Helmet out in the Sun, when not at work. The helmet has an indicator for the battery life which flashes when the battery is running low.
