Automatic Welding Helmet with Lens Technology

The SAVAGE A40 helmet features True Color lens technology for a better view of the weld puddle, an externally activated Grind Button and a 1/1/1/2 optical class lens.

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced the SAVAGE A40 automatic welding helmet. "Inspired by the SENTINEL A50, the SAVAGE A40 automatic welding helmet offers enhanced functionality for the occasional and professional welder at an attractive price," said a company spokesperson.

"SAVAGE uses ESAB's ultra-clear True Color lens technology for a better view of the weld puddle and surrounding area," said Azfar Kamal, Director R&D-USA, ESAB. "When precise bead placement counts, welders can count on the brighter view and enhanced color definition with SAVAGE."

"Like SENTINEL, welders can stay more productive with SAVAGE's externally activated Grind Button," said the spokesperson. Even while wearing a heavy glove, welders can activate a shade 4 Grind Mode on the left side of the helmet. Grind Mode may be suitable for cutting processes as well.

SAVAGE viewing technology is based on a 1/1/1/2 optical class lens (the same class as SENTINEL) and with DIN 9 - 13 shade adjustment. A 3.93" x 1.96" (100 mm x 50 mm) viewing area provides a wide field of vision and increased spatial awareness. Four sensors provide a high response, especially when welding out-of-position.

"Helmets with a 1/1/1/2 optical class rating offer a sharp, clear and consistent view of the weld puddle without the extra cost to obtain the angle dependency 1 rating, a difference that most operators find difficult to perceive," said Kamal. "Our voice-of-customer research shows this class provides users with the best combination of performance and value."

Sensitivity and delay controls inside the helmet let users adjust the response to various welding conditions. Sensitivity control is an adaptable feature useful when welding low amp TIG for better reaction to darker arc light. Delay control enables the welder to set how long the lens stays dark after the welding arc stops. Short delay helps get the job done faster during tack welding, while longer delay is useful for high amperage welding.

The lightweight helmet weighs just 17.6 oz. When safety precautions require a hardhat, the SAVAGE A40 optional hardhat adapter is available.
