Welding helmet with integrated flip-up grind shield
- February 10, 2019
Lincoln Electric has introduced the Viking 3250D FGS Welding Helmet.
Designed for the professional welder, the helmet features a flip-up grind shield (FGS) to increase the operator’s field of view in both open and closed positions through the integration of a clear face shield and side windows. These features can reduce the amount of time needed to conduct material setup, inspection and weld operations, and also make movements less hazardous by eliminating the need to remove the helmet to perform various tasks.
The Viking 3250D FGS also features 4C Lens Technology, which eliminates blur, distortion and eye strain by reducing color saturation in the liquid crystal display (LCD) while also providing a consistent shade at any angle. This technology has scored a perfect 1/1/1/1 rating on the only auto-darkening lens quality standard in the world (EN 379). The 12.5-square-inch auto-darkening viewing area is the largest for this product type industry wide, making it ideal for a range of industries that use multiple welding processes.
4C stands for the following attributes:
- Clarity – Optical clarity at the highest EN379 1/1/1/1 levels
- Colour – Real colour view
- Carat – Lightweight auto-darkening filter
- Cut – Even shade from any angle
