Miller Introduces Arc Armor™ Titanium Series™ Welding Helmets for Industrial Applications

Miller’s new Titanium Series offers a comprehensive choice of helmets to meet the daily demands of industrial welding applications. From standard passive to auto-darkening helmets, with one model featuring an integrated grinding shield, the Titanium Series is redefining industrial welding protection through optimal comfort and performance.

APPLETON, Wis., April 5, 2011 Miller Electric Mfg. Co. introduced its line of Arc Armor™ Titanium Series welding helmets, designed for industrial protection, performance and comfort. The Titanium Series is built upon a shell design that is lightweight for extended wear, provides excellent skin coverage, reflects radiant heat and features a quick-release front cover lens to reduce welder downtime.

Featuring Miller’s top-performing lenses and an exclusive aluminum heat shield

secured within a durable shock-absorbing gasket, the Titanium Series is made to withstand the rugged abuse commonly associated with industrial welding. Helmet options include:

  • Titanium 1600¾features a large, 16-sq.-in. shade #10 passive lens.
  • Titanium 7300¾features a 7.22-sq.-in. viewing area, three independent arc sensors that respond in 1/20,000 of a second, auto-on/auto-off and grind mode. (Grind mode allows the helmet to be used as a protective shield by preventing the lens from darkening while grinding). Other important features include shades #8-13, sensitivity and delay control, and excellent low-amperage TIG (5 amps) performance.
  • Titanium 9400¾features a large 9.22-sq-in. viewing area, four independent arc sensors that respond in 1/20,000 of a second, and excellent low-amp (5 amps) TIG performance. Battery powered with solar assist for long life (up to 3,000 hours), the Titanium 9400 features auto-on/auto-off, grind mode, adjustable sensitivity, delay and shade (shades #8-13). Weighing just 20 oz., the Titanium 9400 helmet is lightweight and comfortable.

  • Titanium 9400i¾similar to the 9400, the 9400i features a 9.22-sq.-in. viewing area and four sensors, but with the addition of an integrated grinding shield. The 9400i’s auto-darkening lens flips up to expose an ANSI approved grinding shield with an almost 180-degree field of view. This provides the welder a better view of the weld cell, improving safety and productivity by allowing the welder to switch between welding and grinding without removing the helmet.

All three Titanium auto-darkening models (9400, 9400i and 7300) feature Auto-On/Auto-Off, grind mode, independent arc sensors, excellent low-amperage TIG performance (5 amps), magnifying lens holder and meet ANSI Z87.1-2003 (High Impact) standards.
