Improve Out-of-Position Welding with Welding Protection

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

There are many ways to improve out-of-position welding, such as adjusting the electrode angle and equipment settings, or repositioning the body. One factor that is often overlooked, but can greatly improve performance, is the type of welding protection being used. PPE that provides versatility and application-specific protection and features, can increase welder performance, productivity and safety.

The Digital Elite® Series Welding Helmet is ideal for out-of-position welding, making it easier, more efficient and more precise to weld in obstructed view applications. Four arc sensors and four operating modes – Weld, Cut, Grind and X-Mode – make it versatile and responsive for all applications. X-Mode is most beneficial for out-of-position welding, eliminating:

• Sunlight interference
• Intermittent Sensing (Pipe)
• Low-Amperage Lens Openings (TIG)
• Obstructed Sensors issuesAvailable in black and nine graphics.
The Arc Armor® Leather Jacket is made from premium grain pigskin leather to withstand sparks, spatter and abrasions common in out-of-position welding. Black leather offers full coverage for overhead welding and reduces reflections, while expandable leather placed near the shoulder provides added mobility for hard-to-reach welds.
