Classic 3M™ Speedglas™ Welding Helmet Launches.. 2 Decades Later!

Article By: Australian Welding Supplies (AWS)

Over twenty years ago, Speedglas launched the 3M Speedglas Welding Helmet Series 9000.  Many welders still consider the classic Speedglas 9000 model the perfect balance of welding helmet shape, size, and weight. So, two decades later, the welding helmet profile that welders love is being relaunched with high performing Speedglas TrueView optics and a head harness made for increased comfort.

The new 3M Speedglas Welding Helmet 9002NC features new Speedglas True-View optics that allow welders to view the weld pool and their general surroundings with a view that appears lighter, brighter and more realistic. “By recognizing a wider spectrum of colour, welders can read surfaces, contours and edges better and benefit from greater control over their welds”, says David Chippendale, Marketing Manager at AWS.

The Speedglas 9002NC features exhaust vents which assist in removing exhaled air keeping the welder more comfortable and the welding lens fog-free. The exhaust vents also allow the narrow profile helmet to comfortably sit closer to the welder’s face making it perfect for tight spaces. At just 485 grams and featuring an upgraded head harness with multiple adjustments for a customised fit, the Speedglas 9002NC is super comfortable for all-day-wear.

With a superior optical rating (1/1/1) and Speedglas True-View this large (55x107mm) auto-darkening welding lens features shades 3/8-12 with arc detection down to an industry leading 1 amp. The new Speedglas 9002NC is compliant with the relevant Australian & New Zealand standards and is suitable for MMAW, MIG/MAG, TIG and low amperage TIG.
