Miller Electric Mfg. Co.'s New Titanium Elite(TM) Auto-Darkening Helmet Designed for High-Heat Applications

New Titanium Elite(TM) helmet provides the protection and durability welders expect in the most demanding high-heat industrial applications.

Highlights/Key Facts

o Durable shock-absorbing gasket protects lens from drop impact
o Convenient quick release provides easy access for front cover lens changes

APPLETON, Wis., April 16, 2009-In response to customer demand for a welding helmet that can better withstand high-amperage, high-heat applications, Miller Electric Mfg. Co. created the Titanium Elite(TM) auto-darkening helmet, a new addition to the Arc Armor(TM) line of welding safety products. Introduced today, the Titanium Elite directly addresses the problem of heat buildup in welding applications that require 300 amps or more, conditions that can affect the lens performance of standard auto-darkening helmets and make it uncomfortable for the welder. The Titanium Elite - the newest member of Miller's Elite Series of auto-darkening helmets - reflects the high heat, keeping it away from the operator, and features an aluminum heat shield to protect the auto-darkening lens. A shock-absorbing gasket, which adds durability and protection from drop impact in hard welding environments, also surrounds the lens.

The Titanium Elite helmet features four independent arc sensors that respond in 1/20,000 of a second, large 9-sq.-in. viewing area and standard Auto-On/Auto-Off and Grind modes. Weighing just 20 oz., the Titanium Elite helmet is lightweight and comfortable and includes five outside and two inside replacement cover lenses, a Miller-exclusive fatigue-reducing comfort cushion and helmet bag.
