The Viking 3350 Series auto-darkening welding helmets from Lincoln Electric feature top-quality LCD optics for a clear, natural view in varied ambient light settings. The solar-powered helmets, augmented with a user-replaceable lithium battery, have a substantial 3.34-in. height viewing area in a U.S. standard 5.25 x 4.50-in. sized cartridge shell.
The helmets are ideal for stick, TIG, pulsed TIG, MIG, pulsed MIG and flux-cored welding, as well as gouging and grinding. An internal switch lets users toggle shade control between 6 to9 or 10 to 13 for handling plasma cutting up through heavy plate welding. Internally mounted controls also can be used to pre-test helmet and battery conditions before welding.
Continuously variable delay lets users vary how quickly the helmet returns from a darkened view back to a light state, while continuously variable sensitivity makes the helmet adaptable to different welding environments and lighting conditions. The helmets have four independent arc sensors that help users avoid blind spots, which otherwise could prevent auto-darkening.
Weighing in at 21 oz. (602 g), the Viking 3350 helmets are lighter than many auto-darkening helmets. Additionally, the helmet’s “grind mode” control allows using it as a grinding shield for weld prep or post-weld clean-up activities.
Viking 3350 Series helmets come in standard black and four additional graphic styles – Patriot, Tribal, Motorhead and Chip Foose-designed Terracuda. The black helmets include a decal sheet, letting users customize their helmet with flags, logos, or letter characters.
