Ohio-based Lincoln Electric Company has this far been manufacturing arc welding products, robotic arc welding systems, weld fume control systems and plasma and oxyfuel cutting equipments. This time, however, it takes a cue from the box office hit movie Iron Man to come up with its limited edition solar-powered welding helmets.
Any professional welder should feel pleased to work with this lightweight (8.3 oz. or 520 g) helmet that auto-darkens to pass up any sight-related hassles. Decked with gold and red colored Iron Man graphics and signatures, it replaces the ordinary on/off switch with superior battery assistance, and works on a grind mode for weld prep and post-weld clean up. Magnifying lens-capable helmet features 3.78 x 1.85 in. view size with continuously variable 9-13 external shade control.
