Press release date: June 26, 2012

New product highlights: · New digital controls and headgear introduced for Digital Elite(TM), Digital Performance(TM) and Digital Pro-Hobby(TM) Series helmets · New Fury(TM) and Illusion(TM) graphic designs are the first large-window professional-grade helmets in the industry with graphics for women · Three-year warranty matches the longest for welding helmets in the industry

APPLETON, Wis. - Miller Electric Mfg. Co. introduces new digital controls and new headgear for its Arc ArmorŪ Digital Elite(TM), Digital Performance(TM) and Digital Pro-Hobby(TM) Series auto-darkening welding helmets. The all-new digital controls make it easier for the welder to adjust shade, delay and sensitivity - even when wearing gloves - compared to previous digital and analog designs. The Digital Performance and Digital Pro-Hobby product lines replace previous product designs that only featured analog controls.

The new headgear is designed to increase comfort, is substantially easier to adjust to personal preferences than previous models and has been tested to withstand the rigors of daily use. The headgear conforms to the user's head and offers more flexibility with six points of adjustment. The integrated comfort cushion mounted on the back of the headgear further ensures a secure and sturdy fit.

"The updates to our full Arc Armor line of digital auto-darkening welding helmets makes settings and adjustments much more intuitive, with easy manipulation and clear markings on the control panel," said Eric Sommers, product manager, Miller. "The updated headgear is more flexible, more durable and the welder is more comfortable for longer periods of time. Whether welding all day for work or on the weekends in your home garage, the new upgrades ensure maximum comfort, productivity and performance."

The updates also include the introduction of two new female-inspired graphic designs: Fury(TM) and Illusion(TM). These are the industry's first large-window professional-grade helmets with graphics for women.

"Personal identity is very important to welders," said Sommers. "While we see women wearing our current graphic designs, we've heard many requests to create designs with more of a feminine appeal. These two new designs are our first steps in that direction."

The full line of Arc Armor digital helmets comes with a new three-year warranty that matches the longest warranty in the industry for a welding helmet.

"Welders can take comfort in knowing the helmets will provide long lasting performance in addition to enhanced functionality and comfort," said Sommers.
