Miller Introduces New Classic Series Auto-Darkening Welding Helmets with Integrated Grinding Features

Multi-featured helmets offer industrial welding protection and performance in a durable, cost-effective design.

 

Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has introduced two new auto-darkening models to its Classic Series of welding helmets: the Classic VSi and the Classic FS #10 2x4 Flip-Up. Both provide solutions to users who are looking for the performance and flexibility of an auto-darkening helmet at a price that meets their needs. These helmets  offer flip-up design features that allow operators to grind and carry out other tasks without raising the welding helmet or switching over to a dedicated grinding mask, resulting in a safer, more productive work environment.

 

The Classic VSi is a variable shade (shades 8-13) auto-darkening helmet with a flip-up panel on the front that exposes a clear integrated grinding shield with 180 degrees of vision. The helmet also features X-Mode, a technology that electromagnetically senses the welding arc. This eliminates problems in outdoor and obstructed-view applications where interference with the welding sensors can prevent the helmet from properly darkening. The Classic VSi features a 5.88 square-inch viewing area and three independent sensors for optimal response time.

 

The Classic FS #10 2x4 Flip-Up helmet features two independent sensors and an industry-standard 2x4 auto-darkening lens that darkens to shade 10. The 2x4 lens flips up to expose a clear grinding shield that gives the user a clear view to the work area.

 

Both helmets are ANSI Z87.1+(2010) and CSA certified, and come with a two-year warranty from Miller. For more on these, and the entire line of Arc Armor® welding protection products, visit MillerWelds.com.
