South Carolina–based ESAB Welding & Cutting Products introduced the Aristo Tech 5-13 Welding Helmet with Variable Shade ADF. Designed for the professional welder, the helmet features Auto-Darkening Filter Lens Technology (ADF) and has a variable 5-13 digital control for adjustment of shade level, sensitivity, and delay. The helmet’s Quick Set feature allows for easy change of shade with a simple up-and-down flick of the switch. The helmet’s grind mode is activated at the lowest sensitivity.
The Aristo Tech 5-13 also comes with ESAB’s latest integrated Circuit LENS Technology, which features an internal LCD display with reliability that is suitable for all manual welding processes and plasma cutting. The helmet’s front cover lens is coated for increased scratch and heat resistance and is premolded into a convex curve with an optical class 1, which eliminates the threat of duplicate ghost arcs being visible through the cartridge.
