Hebei Machinery Import and Export Co., Ltd., offers OEM as well as high quality auto darkening welding helmet, designed to meet any budget.
A high quality welding helmet is the most important tool in a welder's arsenal. Helmets protect the eyes and skin from the glare, heat and sparks generated during the arc welding process. The right welding helmet is a must-have for any welder. Not only does it protect your face from damage, it also ensures that your eyesight is not permanently damaged by the harmful infrared and ultraviolet rays produced by the electric arc. At Hebei Machinery, we pride ourselves on having a wide variety of welding helmets to meet all of your needs, even for the unique look that eye-catching graphics provide.
Auto-variable welding helmets are among the most technologically advanced helmets available today. Not only are these helmets impact resistant and flame retardant, they also automatically adjust to the ideal shade when your flashlight is lit. They are lightweight, fully adjustable to provide maximum comfort, and both meet U.S. and Canadian safety standards: ANSI Z87.1 and CAN/CSA Z92.3, respectively.
If you are in a dilemma about the type of helmet to use, you are welcome to choose auto darkening welding helmets and passive welding helmets that meet the requirements of all our national safety standards.
Wearing safety equipment is essential for welders. As the most important piece of welding equipment, the helmet protects the eyes from direct contact with fire sparks when the arc is struck. It, therefore, protects welders from the risk of eye-related medical problems, such as arc eye and retinal burns. In addition to the eyes, the helmet also covers the entire face and neck.
Your choice of the best welding helmet depends largely on its unique features, advantages, disadvantages, how they work, and the quality of the lenses.
The auto-darkening welding helmet uses automatic adjustment technology which allows the lens to automatically go from light to dark when it detects light from the welding machine. The lens has a sensor that detects the light by looking at the filters and cells present in the plane.
The hallmark of the auto darkening welding helmet is its accuracy. Once set up and worn, when you start welding, the glass automatically darkens within milliseconds of the arc trigger. This means you can see outside the helmet before you start welding. When you look through the lens, you can see everything you would normally see, except for a little green. Nevertheless, you can clearly see everything before and after you wear the helmet.
The auto darkening welding helmet has unique features such as an automatic light-changing filter, multiple arc sensors and a battery pack. The sensors are located on the side ridges of the helmet, and most helmets have 3 to 6 arc sensors - the more sensors, the better the coverage.
The auto darkening welding helmet has an external line and polarizing filter that keeps your eyes away from radiation even when the auto darkening feature is not activated.
The auto darkening welding helmet uses auto adjustment technology which allows the lens to automatically go from light to dark when it detects light from the welder. The lens has a sensor that detects light by looking at the filters and cells present in the plane.
The auto darkening welding helmet uses either battery or solar power. The sensor will detect the arc as it generates light that triggers the sensor to transmit the signal responsible for activating the liquid crystal (darkening and brightening depending on the intensity of the light), thus darkening the lens to a predetermined level of shading.

What is the weld shade number?
Weld shade number refers to the ability of a welding helmet to provide 100% protection for your eyes from UV and IR rays over a temperature range of 23 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit. These shades range from 8 to 13, with 10 being the standard range used in passive welding helmets.
How long do welding helmets last?
There is no standard life expectancy for a welding helmet. Its use depends entirely on the welder. The factors that determine how long a welding helmet will last depend on how it is stored, the type of batteries used, the environmental conditions the helmet is exposed to, and the welder's ability to handle it.
Choosing a glass or plastic tint?
Auto darkening welding helmet is available with plastic and glass lenses. Glass tints are better because plastic distorts the light and color profile. Or, if you're on a tight budget, plastic shades should be a perfect choice because they're cheaper.
Hebei Machinery has a large range of welding helmets producing high-quality helmets, tools and accessories. If you are a beginner in welding and may be confused when deciding which welding helmet to buy, feel free to contact us.
A wide range of different designs is offered to give the helmet a more bespoke look, although they manage to keep the professional look of the helmet intact. The company specializes in making welding helmets with good viewing areas for improved welder visibility and the quality of their lenses is top-notch.
Some of the cheapest welding helmets on the market are offered and their quality is easily comparable to competitors' high-priced welding helmets
Choose the one with the highest rating for safety and research the safest welding helmet models for your protection. They are quality, they have some very robustly constructed welding helmets that look durable over time and they will protect the welder no matter what the welding process is. Their models are designed in an oval shape, whereas most competitors aim to make their welding helmets more avant-garde.
Decide between an auto darkening welding helmet and a passive welding helmet. If you are a beginner, it is recommended that you choose the auto-darkening welding helmet as it has an automatic function and allows better handling of the torch or welding torch while you are still learning. We also offer welding torches, if interested, welcome to contact us!
