Miller Introduces Redesigned Titanium Series™ Welding Helmets

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

New Arc Armor® Titanium Series™ welding helmets built for heavy-use/high-amperage applications feature Miller-exclusive InfoTrack™ technology that allows the operator to track arc-on time, improves comfort and adjustability. The new external grind button featured on the Titanium 7300™ and Titanium 9400™ allows welders to switch to grind mode without ever lifting their helmets.The Titanium 9400i™ features an auto-darkening lens that flips up to expose an ANSI approved grinding shield with an almost 180-degree field of view.

Check out the all-new digital controls with larger displays and intuitive design allow the welder to adjust modes, shade levels, delay and sensitivity, and a new three-year warranty matches the longest of any welding helmet in the industry today.

PAPR now comes with Titanium 9400i helmet

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

Miller announced last week that it’s adding the Titanium 9400i industrial auto-darkening welding helmet as an option to its line of powered air purifying respirators (PAPRs). You can read all about Miller’s full line of PAPRs here.

Who needs a PAPR? People are using it for more than safety these days, as it also substantially improves the comfort of a welder throughout the day. Here’s an excerpt from an article put together last year with our friends at Ultra Machine and Fabrication. You can read the whole article here.

Ultra’s welding operations are intensive: two eight-hour shifts with almost non-stop welding (and thus, non-stop exposure to welding fumes). Miller’s PAPRs are integrated with EliteTM auto-darkening welding helmets to create a solution that fully covers the welder’s face and neck. Such a design minimizes direct contact with the welding fumes. Miller’s PAPRs (NIOSH Certified 42 CFR Part 84, Assigned Protection Factor (APF): 25) protect the welder beyond what OSHA regulates as acceptable levels in an eight-hour time period. Both audible and vibrating alarms notify the welder if air levels coming into the helmet fall below NIOSH specified levels”It alleviates breathing harmful vapors and smoke,” says David Setzer, welder/fabricator, Ultra Machine and Fabrication. “It keeps you cooler, and I go home at the end of the day and it’s not as hard to breath. It’s the best thing they’ve done.”
